“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We stayed here for the weekend on 20th July. Had a great weekend. The room were spacious and very clean. Breakfast was good, bar food was good but dinner was ok. The staff were very friendly and more than helpful, it is so nice to have a receptionist that will actually make time to chat with you.
We had a lovely weekend and will definitely be returning. Thank you to all at the Shamrock.

We stayed here for 1 night mid week in July. The hotels staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel room was spotless and i assume newly decorated. The bar food was fine and the breakfast was equally delicious. The only problem was the tables in the breakfast room were long and set for a group of people to sit at. So all of the tables were taken up by couples or individuals. There was four of us and we didn't fancy sharing a table with complete strangers. We had to wait a while before a member of staff appeared.(This seems to be another small hiccup with staffing. Expect to wait awhile for someone to see you at the reception desk or in the breakfast room). Eventually she opened the other restaurant for us to sit in. If the hotel staff are reading this. Just sort out the seating/table settings in the breakfast room. Just set up a few small tables for couples and loners. If I wanted to socialize with the other guests it definetly wouldn't be at breakfast! I would have given this full marks but just those little things bug me so much.

We had a family reunion in August 2011 and I was really impressed by the friendliness and high levels of service of the staff in addition to the hotel, its ground and its walking distance proximity to the centre of Athlone. Ours was a large reunion and they dealt with a wedding the same weekend, but no request we made was too much trouble for the hotel. Okay it made need a lick of paint here and there but that was of no consequence given the high level of professional service and excellent food the hotel had to offer - and most reasonably priced too!

We had our wedding here on 2nd June. They couldn't do enough for us anything we asked for it was no problem at all. The function room was fabulous. Food was lovely and service was great also. The bridal suit was very nice and comfortable not that we were in there for long. All the guests that stayed said same. Price per head for meal is also good. No hidden costs at all price you see is price you pay. We were made feel very relaxed for our big day. I highly recommend this hotel for a wedding or any function or just a break away. Its close to the town but not in the town.
