Having been at a few weddings in the Shamrock Lodge in recent years, we know that it was the only place for us when we finally set the date for our big day. From the very first day we called in to enquire about availability in Summer 2018 to the big day itself, Alan and his team couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. On the day, we had no shows, additional children and special dietary requirements, but nothing phased the team in the Shamrock Lodge. We had our entire wedding there - ceremony and reception, and the one thing we keep hearing back from guests is that it was a brilliant day and one of the best weddings they ... Read more

We had our wedding in The Shamrock Lodge back in April. I knew from as soon as I got engaged that I wanted to have my wedding here as I had previously attended weddings here and had seen the excellent quality and service that was provided. Once my husband met Alan it didn't take long to convince him either. And they did not disappoint. We have nothing but good things to say about the service we received. Having planned our wedding while living in the UK, Alan and all the staff were nothing but accommodating to us and anything we wanted or needed was provided no problem. The day before our wedding, Steven and our guests and family from Scotland ... Read more

There is only one word I can use for Shamrock Lodge Hotel and that is Amazing. From the day we first walked in until 2 years later when we wed was fantastic service. The people are so warm and helpful always. The day itself was flawless from start to finish. The food was gorgeous, everybody said so. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. I cannot recommend this family run hotel enough.

We were married in the shamrock lodge hotel on the 17/08/2018, everything was amazing on our day and we wouldn’t change one single thing. Even the build-up was amazing, from picking our menu prior to the big day was done perfectly, we were treated like royalty by all the staff and couldn’t fault one thing. The venue was decorated beautifully and the food was out of this world. The service was spot on compliments to the chefs and kitchen staff, our families and guests are still raving about our wedding and that means so much and a big part of that is because of Alan and Paddy, two true gentlemen who couldn’t do enough for us and our party. Thank ... Read more

From the minute we stepped onto the premises and met Mary we knew this was the hotel that we wanted to have our special day in. The hotel is so cosy and the staff make you feel at home and the grounds surrounding the hotel are spectacular and just perfect for outdoor pictures. From the lead up to the day Mary/Nicola could not have done enough for us. On the day Alan took the lead and ensured everything was how we wanted it and that we were happy. The food was delicious and all ours guests enjoyed the meal and there was no one left hungry as the food kept coming. The bar was open until late and no one ... Read more

We could not say enough positive comments about our wedding in The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. From the first meeting, we knew this was where we were going to have our wedding. Mary and Alan could not have been more helpful and accommodating in every single aspect of the day. There was nothing that they couldn't do or try and make work for us. The day ran flawlessly and at no stage were we worried about the way it all came together at the reception. The ballroom was stunning, the food was amazing, it was one of the commented on parts of the day and there was so much of everything to go around. We would recommend The Shamrock Loge to ...

From the minute we viewed the Shamrock Lodge we knew it was the one. We could picture our wedding there! From the minute we got out of the wedding car and got presented with champagne, got bag piped in, to the wonderful scones, tea coffee etc. in the lobby. The evening was so magical for us we never imagined our BIG day would go as beautifully as it did. It was the most amazing day of our lives. The staff, managers, everyone was excellent at the service that day and making sure we were happy with everything. Best venue for a wedding by far. Thanks so much for an unreal Wedding day we will never forget it and neither will ... Read more

Brian & I got married in Shamrock lodge hotel in April. We had our ceremony & reception there. From the day we booked up until our wedding day the staff management couldn't do enough for us.

by Patricia Brady on Mon, 10th September, 2018
Can not recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone enough. From the first day we had our meeting with them we knew our wedding was in safe hands. Anything we asked for was never too much hassle. The wedding day itself went by so fast but everything they had done for us was amazing and all the guests were raving about it especially the food!
by Shauna Brady on Sat, 26th May, 2018
We had our wedding on 24 May 2018 here and there is no words to describe the outstanding service shown by all staff. A special thanks to Paddy, Alan and Warren you were amazing to deal with, making us feel so special on the lead upto our wedding, the day itself and also the following day. Our guests really enjoyed their stay and how well they were looked after. From reception to bar staff to cleaning staff all your staff members were a credit to our enjoyable day. Thanking you so much Shauna and Niall.
by Mary & Barry on Tue, 13th February, 2018
We cannot speak any more highly of The Shamrock Lodge on how well they treated not only us for our special day but how accommodating they were to our guests. From start to finish Alan, Paddy & Mary were amazing & extremely helpful with any questions or concerns that we had for our special day - no question or query was too big or small & the attention to detail was second to none. Our guests were struck by the level of service provided at the reception & the meal is still a major talking point for all those who attended. Dietary requirements were not an issue & the choice available was excellent. The Shamrock Lodge grounds were a perfect ... Read more

We just had our wedding day in the shamrock Lodge Hotel on New Years Eve and it was absolutely amazing! The staff were so nice and accommodating. Each and every team member was so friendly. The hotel itself is beautiful and so much effort was put in to making our day so special. The food was amazing. Nothing was too big of a request and the day went so smoothly thanks to all of the helpful staff. I would recommend the lodge to anyone getting married. A special thanks to Paddy, Alan, Warren and Mary for making our day so magical. It really was the best day ever Mr and Mrs Sammon Xxx

by Phyllis Kilmurray on Thu, 30th November, 2017
Finally getting around to thanking Alan, Warren, Paddy & their team. Our wedding was just so perfect. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. The shamrock lodge took control & planned everything (for us in such a short time) from the ceremony, reception, our meal & the after party. Alan was fantastic throughout the day, he was constantly checking to make sure everything was fine & running smoothly. The staff that were working were brilliant, the food was amazing & the service was excellent. We have had & still have so much positive feedback from our guests and it's all positive & complimentary to the staff & hotel. We can only speak so highly of Alan, Warren &Paddy as ... Read more

Could not rate the shamrock lodge highly enough for the most amazing day off your life. Alan McCaul and his staff went over and beyond their call off duty to make sure everything went perfect for us. Guests reported back that the food was fabulous and plenty off it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks to the Shamrock lodge for making our day so special. A great day enjoyed by all.
by Maureen McCann on Wed, 22nd November, 2017
When I first started looking for a venue for the wedding I read the venue reviews. Of course they were all very positive but what stood out for us was the fact that the Lodge was portrayed as a family run and nothing would be too much trouble ethos. As I was organising my wedding from London it was vital that I worked with an organised wedding planner and Mary was just that. We stayed at and visited other hotels, however although pleasant, modern and a bit corporate the friendly feel with every request being met, meant that the Shamrock Lodge could not be beaten. The Lodge gave us the personal touch and all our guests were blown away by ... Read more

We had our Wedding in the Shamrock Lodge on 5th October and what a day. We attended a Wedding Fair held by the Lodge and met with Paddy and instantly fell in love with the place and ended up putting down a deposit there and then. Mary, Paddy, Alan and Warren genuinely could not have done any more for us. Every email I sent with all the silly questions was answered promptly by Mary. They treated us and our families with such kindness and respect and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. The little details on the day went down a treat like the kids activity packs and the sweet cart. I cannot thank the staff enough for ... Read more

We recently got married in this hotel and we couldn't have asked for nicer people to deal with. Mary the wedding coordinator is an absolute star and so amazing at what she does.

I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of getting married, the food was fantastic and our day ran very smoothly. Thanks so much for everything!

We had our wedding day in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel a few days ago and it was absolutely fantastic! The staff are the nicest and most accommodating that I have ever come across.

I cant speak highly enough about the Shamrock Lodge for a wedding. The hotel itself is fab, the grounds are lovely for photos etc and the staff are just exceptional. I mainly dealt with Mary and Alan and they are amazing. They couldn't do enough for us in the lead up to and on the day of the wedding and the day went off without a hitch because of them. They make you feel right at home. I would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding at the Shamrock Lodge. You wont be disappointed. :)

by fiona & gary on Fri, 29th September, 2017
From the early stages of planning the wedding we were left in no doubt we had chosen the right venue for our wedding. Mary, Paddy, Alan and Warren were exceptionally helpful with any requests in the lead up to the big day. They were always available for help and advice to us prior to the wedding. They were very flexible with any requests and made every attempt to make our day run as smoothly as possible. On the day itself again their experience shone through, the service, the staff, the food, the venue itself were fantastic. Alan was constantly there to put us at ease and take care of anything that popped up. All the guests (particularly those from out ... Read more

Got married here on Friday and everything was perfect from the moment we booked. They made sure everything went smoothly for it and really helped to make our special day perfect. The dining room was lovely, everyone spent the evening complimenting the delicious food and the beds were super comfy. What more can I say but thank you for an unbelievable experience. Can't recommend them enough, thank you so much to everyone there for all your help and hard work in making our day as perfect as it was.
by Aoife on Thu, 21st September, 2017
The only question we had when it came to planning our wedding was 'when will we go to the lodge to book our date' it was the only choice for us. From that point onwards Mary and Alan were so helpful, informative and professional while also putting us at ease. They ensured us we would have a brilliant wedding day. They didn't disappoint. The John Broderick suite is such a fantastic setting. The country garden surrounding the suite was manicured to perfection and it really enhanced our wedding theme. We were thrilled with how well it turned out on the day. We would like to compliment the entire staff and management at the Shamrock lodge. Throughout the day and night ... Read more

We had enquired with a few places before we decided to have our wedding day with the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and none were particularly interested as it was a small family wedding. This could not be further from the truth with the Shamrock lodge hotel. The service we received was absolutely outstanding. From the first phone call we made until the day we left we could not have asked for anymore. Mary who we planned our day with was exceptional. It is rare to meet someone who goes above and beyond what is expected to the extent she did. This is someone who is professional, patient, considerate, kind and does things with such a good heart. No request was too ... Read more

The food at the reception was top class and was served very quickly. All our guests complimented us on our choice of venue and remarked that not many of them knew the Hotel existed.

We got married in The Shamrock Lodge on January 2nd 2016 and I cannot compliment the Hotel enough for the way we were treated. From our initial meeting with Paddy and Alan McCaul, to when we checked out of the hotel after the wedding, we felt part of the family that is The Shamrock Lodge. The hotel was decorated beyond our expectations when we arrived and I have to admit a wow factor when we saw how the Ballroom was prepared and presented for our reception. The food which was served was of 5 star quality, and substantial amounts of it, and it was commented to us on the day by our guests and indeed many times since how delicious ... Read more

From the fabulous food to the friendly and professional staff, we could not have asked for more.

So many of our guests commented on the great food and lovely homely atmosphere apparent in the hotel. We are ... Read more

We had our wedding at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel on the 30th of May 2015. From start to finish, Alan and the team at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. Everything that we asked for was taken on board. As for the day itself, it was perfect. Nothing forgotten and everything went better than we could have expected. The ball room looked amazing. After dinner our guests were taken to another reception room for dessert . This really added to the atmosphere. To say the food was delicious is an understatement. People are still talking about it. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Quality food and service. A day we will never forget .

When we planned our wedding, the first thing we wanted was to have our reception in the Shamrock Lodge. Through the years we have attended numerous weddings and had great days and nights, so for myself and Nicki this was the place for us. Last Saturday we had our ceremony and reception in the Lodge.

From the day we booked until we checked out the day after our wedding we had nothing but the best of treatment from the staff at the shamrock lodge. they are so professional and deliver the very best service in the lodge. the day of our wedding makes me smile so much because it was so relaxed and calm ,the reason for that was we had to worry about nothing, everything was perfect for us. the drinks reception was top class & the chocolate fountain was a major hit with everyone, the meal was amazing(i was eating my mains & got side tracked chatting to my guests so my meal went cold, one of the waitresses noticed & replaced it ...

We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge and had a fanastic day, from start to finish, the food was fab all our guest complimented how tasty and warm the food was, the ball room looked fantastic on the day,nothing was a problem to Alan and the team at the Shamrock Lodge they were waiting to answer any questions/concerns we had, As any bride getting married knows wedding organising can be quite stressful at times Alan reassured us time and time again that the day would run smoothly and it was absolutely perfect I couldnt have asked for a better day, I would highly reccommend the Shamrock Lodge to any couple getting married as we had an outstanding day there.

From the day we booked our wedding reception with the Shamrock Lodge we knew that we would be looked after so well. Warren, Alan, Paddy and all the staff here made our day so special. Everything about the hotel was perfect, the gardens are fabulous, food was amazing, the hotel has a lovely character to it and the recently renovated ballroom is amazing. We would recommend the Shamrock Lodge to anyone looking at having your wedding reception there, you will not be disappointed!

by Elaine Whelan on Fri, 4th November, 2016
From the moment we started our planning for our wedding May 1st 2015, we knew the Shamrock Lodge was the only place for us. We had planned a festival theme from the get go and Alan, Paddy, Warren and all of their team could not have been more accommodating. With over 50 coloured Chinese lanterns and metre upon metre of bunting to be hung, they never made us feel like any request was too much and that was just the start of our decorating. Our entire day was made memorable by how easy Alan had made everything for us. Our day flowed naturally without a hitch only made possible by the attention to detail and dedication to perfection that the ... Read more

Myself and my husband celebrated our wedding in June in the hotel. I literally cannot praise the management and staff enough. They were simply amazing, our guests are still raving about the food, the friendly staff and the lovely homely vibe and electric atmosphere that was in the hotel the entire weekend. The management were outstanding catering to our every need/request in the build up to our big day. The whole team in the lodge worked so hard for our 300+ guests the entire weekend. I really felt everyone lived up to the hotels motto of "let our family look after yours".... It was literally a home away from home for three days! Thank you all for an unforgettable weekend ...

Well, where do I begin?! We had the most amazing experience here in The Shamock Lodge Hotel. From the day we first visited and met with Alan McCaul we were hooked. Alan was so down to earth, realistic and unbelievably helpful and accommodating. We had looked at numerous venues prior to visiting the Shamrock Lodge but none of them were on par or had a wedding coordinator as personable as Alan. We told Alan exactly what we wanted and he arranged everything without having to have meeting after meeting with us. It was straight forward and effortless for us and we had the most amazing day of our lives here under the care of Alan, Warren and their team. The ... Read more

We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on September 9th and from our very initial inquiries with Mary Glynn, the wedding co-ordinator, everything went like clockwork. Everything was so well organised. The hospitality was fantastic, the food was excellent and the staff were so helpful and friendly on the day. Even the night before I was onto the hotel a few times, checking if different items were delivered to the hotel and they were so responsive and pleasant to deal with. It was so easy and stress free. Having the civil ceremony in the hotel was very convenient for the elderly guests at the wedding. The bridal suite was beautiful, breakfast the next morning was fantastic and all ... Read more

We had our wedding in the shamrock lodge August this year. I could not highly recommend this hotel enough, they management and staff welcomed us from the onset and couldn't do enough for us. On the lead up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding they went above and beyond to make it a day to remember. They have recently done up the ballroom, bridal suite and gardens and our photos turned out amazing. The food can not be faulted it was so tasty and the portions were plenty full. The hotel itself has a very family friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Fantastic hotel for a wedding reception and lovely location to visit Athlone town. We had our wedding here in August, friends and family travelled over from England and stayed Thursday to Sunday, they could not compliment the Shamrock enough! The staff are happy and friendly, the food is fabulous and fantastic value for money. All I can say is there is a sprinkle of magic poured over the Shamrock when they host a wedding that can never be captured on any website or review. A big thank you to Alan, Paddy and all the staff that made our wedding such an amazing experience for us and our guests. Lynn and David, 5th August 2016.

We got married in The Shamrock Lodge in April 2016. It was the only choice for us when finding a venue as my family have always gone to The Shamrock Lodge over a long number of years and always received a five star service. From the minute we made contact with Alan we received a very professional but personal service which was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. There is nothing that we asked for that Alan didn't make happen for us and he went above and beyond what we had expected. He is also a very warm and easygoing guy while at the same time you know that he is reliable and has it all covered . The ... Read more

We had our wedding in the shamrock lodge hotel on June 11th 2016. From the word go Alan couldn't do enough for us , from out pre wedding meetings down to the fine details. On the day itself everything was just perfect. The food, the decor and the service was 100 per cent. Without hesitation the shamrock lodge is in my opinion the best wedding venue in the Midlands.

The Shamrock Lodge Hotel was just outstanding. From when we first met Alan, we knew we would have no worries. He is so brilliant to work with, and no job is too big for him. The Shamrock Lodge did everything in their power to ensure our day went off without a hitch, and it did! They promise quality and excellence, and we got it! Any request we had, big or small, was met. I found them so helpful! The food and service for our wedding was excellent, and I guarantee you, you wouldn't go hungry!!

We got married in the lovely Shamrock Lodge on the 23rd of April this year. We had heard rave reviews from some friends that got married there and from the minute we spoke to Alan, the manager, and looked around with him, we could see why it was so popular. We had also both been to a lot of weddings here and the food and atmosphere was always lovely. From the get go Alan, Paddy, Mary and the team were so good to deal with. Nothing was too big a request or too silly a question. At our meal tasting we got enough food to feed a small army and Alan was so open to any of our suggestions. On ... Read more

From the very bottom of our hearts, James and I would like to thank the management and staff of the Shamrock Lodge for making our wedding on Friday March 18th 2016 so special. We could not have asked for more from a venue, everything was perfect from the attention to detail in the room, to the food, to the atmosphere. We have been inundated with compliments on how well everything went and how great the staff and service was. It was honestly faultless. We had a fantastic day.

My wife and I git married only last weekend on the 13/2/16. From the day we booked with paddy and his son Alan we couldn't have asked for anything more friendly and useful service. If we need a penny they would give us a euro in return. The most nicest friendliest family hotel and staff we have ever met. From doing up our dinner list to sampling it their wasn't one fault. They tried to meet our budget as much as we tried to make sure they were happy too. As for the food itself everyone has complemented us on the choice but their is no way we could have done it if it wasn't for the staff of the ... Read more

If you are looking for a fantastic venue for your wedding we 100% recommend the Shamrock Lodge in Athlone. We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge on the 18th of July 2015 and couldn't be happier with the venue we chose. The hospitality from Alan & Paddy McCaul and all the staff was top notch, everyone we dealt with was friendly, helpful and down to earth. From the very first meeting with Alan, the Manager, we were made to feel welcome and that nothing would be a problem with planning the wedding. We live in Australia but even this huge distance was no problem as we had numerous calls and emails with Alan to keep us up to date ... Read more

The Shamrock Lodge staff was incredibly helpful when planning and executing my entire wedding day. They worked with my family in planning because I live in the States, along with countless emails back and forth. When my husband and I arrived, they went over all of the decisions that were made.
