We recently spent five days as first time lodgers at the Shamrock Lodge and Conference Center in Athlone, Ireland. Our stay was nothing less than perfect. The superlatives include, but are not limited to:

1. Beautifully manicured grounds;
2. Central location with an easy walk to Athlone points of interest;
3. Modern updated and impeccably clean facilities;
4. A large clean well-appointed room with a very comfortable bed;
5. A very attentive, knowledgeable and well trained staff.

But foremost the Shamrock Lodge and Conference Center is a “yes” hotel:

1. Can we have extra towels…yes.
2. Can I substitute this item on the menu…yes.
3. Can you book us a taxi…yes.
4. Can you fix the following drink…yes.

Whether for business or pleasure we highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge and Conference Center.

Stayed here for one night for a wedding. Everything was lovely and their wedding room was stunning.The bedroom was perfect, though we only spent a couple of hours in it.
I really would like to thank the staff on their great service and friendliness. Great experience overall.

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding which was at the Glasson. Was one of the only hotels left with rooms available for that weekend so was a little reluctant, however I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel!

Firstly when we arrived about an hour before the ceremony at 12pm we were greeted by a lovely lady and we asked if we could check in early (check in is 3pm) she was so accommadating and friendly and within 15 minutes had us in a lovely clean room on the groundfloor. This was great as I wanted to retouch my makeup etc.

The room itself was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was a litte chilly, however the rooms have self controlled radiators so we turned it on for an hour and it was nice and cosy.
When we came back from the wedding at 3am we noticed there was some kind of party going on in the function room, it could have been a wedding or birthday party. There was a fair bit of noise from being so close to the function room, but to be honest I couldn't really complain given it was the room that was so graciously given to us 3 hours before check in.

The next morning we had the full Irish breakfast which was lovely and filling. It was buffet style however there was a gentlemen serving the food to people from the hot buffet which was quite good as it kept the queue running smoothly! If I was to nit-pick I guess the toasting machine was quite slow and there was a mass of people waiting for slices to re-emerge on the other end haha!

Overall a good quality hotel, very fairly priced with lovely smiling staff willing to accommadate!

I recently attended a conference at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and stayed as a resident during the conference.

The staff are very helpful, from the reception who helped out at short notice to print notes, to the kitchen who catered for a range of dietary requirements. All were very polite.

The rooms are good, but could have better TVs. Excellent quiet location but just a 10 minute walk to the town centre.

Would I stay there again?.....Yes. Would I recommend to friends and family?....Yes.
