Loved every moment of the visit to Wineport; beautiful hotel with lots of luxurious touches but above all, hugely comfortable and cosy. Exceptional staff with that distinctly Irish low-key warm welcome. No fuss, just brilliant service. Gorgeous bedroom, gorgeous bathroom. Food was outstanding. Wineport is very different from other hotels - lots of 5 star touches, a very distinctive style and I imagine it's spectacular in summer and cosy in winter. It also benefits from a great location - a ten minute walk brings you to the village of Glasson which has two super gastro pubs; we ate a great meal at the Fatted Calf and had lovely drinks in Grogans. Staff in both were wonderful. Also v close to Athlone. Highly, highly recommended. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bordeaux Room; but all rooms apparently have lake views.

The Wineport hotel is so tranquil and picturesque. But VERY expensive! With a two night B&B+1D €580 for 2. This was a massive treat for us and im sorry to say that I was a bit disappointed this time. It was our 3rd time at the hotel and the service was much better the other times. I reported the outside handle on our sliding door was broken (meaning it would not lock), It was not fixed. Our room was on the 1st floor (Chanti) looked into 3 trees!!! No view of the stunning Shannon. I am not going to go on and on just to say, the service could have been better. on the plus side we did have a lovely dinner on Saturday and the hightlight of the meal was the dessert!! Many thanks :)

Attended a wedding this year. This hotel is where the RTE Series The Restaurant is Set. Ideal for a romantic weekend away, located on the shores of Lough Ree. The food is nice and the rooms are nice but it is a bit out of the way so if you want to be close to the town it might not be the place for you. Also the place is hard to book on the weekends.

We had a family get together for Sunday lunch and drinks. All of our meals were top quality
with great presentation and great to see locally sourced produce. Wineport is amazing value and
we were very impressed with the great variety and value wine list.
The service was impeccable and Norma is a fantastic captain of her well trained team.
I would like to wish everybody in Wineport the very best and keep up the great work in making
this hotel a little gem.

Room Tip: No tips as they all seem to look out onto this beautiful lake.

We had the pleasure of holding our wedding in Wineport lodge. From start to finish we were treated like the only couple in the world ! The service that we received was impeccable , a great deal of care was taken as one of us has strict dietary requirements and the head chef worked on an individual menu to make the meal experience perfect. It was truly a magical day and we are very thankful to all the staff for their undivided attention to detail. The venue is very impressive for photos and the bedrooms are stylish and chic. A lot of our guests are already dying to go back to stay themselves ! Many thanks

Stayed in the Wineport Lodge for one night & we were bowled over by the great location & amazing views of the lakes & countryside from our upgraded suite. The bedrooms are truly the gem in this hotel. Dinner was nice but not anything special, the menu seemed to be safe but lacked the 'wow' factor. The breakfast was very good. The Staff were very welcoming & informative. The hotel have 2 bicycles available to guests & also there are some nice walks around the lakes. We will definitely come back to this area for a return visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You'll feel the difference the moment you arrive. More than a hotel, this is a luxury lodge with a unique sense of warmth and comfort at every turn. Nestled on the banks of Lough Ree, in an idyllic setting surrounded by native woodland, Wineport Lodge is exceptional in both style and service. With hosts who instinctively ensure your every need is met, here luxury and comfort comes wrapped in easy humour and effortless hospitality. Blissfully located in the beautiful countryside of Athlone, Wineport Lodge enjoys an incomparable setting on the edge of Ireland's peaceful inland waterways. Its cedar clad, log-cabin-style exterior is matched with a tasteful, modern interior that reflects the warm and relaxed atmosphere across the lodge and its lakeside grounds. Famously delicious food is matched by genuinely friendly and expert service. An always interesting Menu changes seasonally with the most flavoursome local produce regularly appearing as a daily special. Rustic in style, unpretentious and always generous on the plate... At Wineport Lodge you're in for a dining treat. Each menu is accompanied by an electric, carefully selected wine list. Glasson Golf Club is just a short boat trip away, and a stroll around the lake begins outside our front door. Wineport Lodge was designed to be in tune with our stunning natural surroundings. It's all about having the maximum comfort with the minimum environmental impact. That's why you won't find a sprawling spa with pool here. What you will find though is nothing short of perfect. Two intimate treatment suites are just waiting for you with a range of VOYA treatments and therapies guaranteed to help you relax, rejuvenate and renew.
