The Shamrock Lodge Hotel is without doubt, The best venue to have your wedding. The Grounds in which the hotel is situated are very picturesque and ideal for all your Wedding Photo's. We had our full Wedding , Ceremony and Reception, at the Hotel and the Management and Staff were very professional . There was nothing they wouldn't do to help out. 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. The Bridal suit had been upgraded during the year and was very warm and comfortable. All in all we were extremely happy with our ... Read more

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

On 17 May 2014 my husband and I had our wedding reception at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. From the day we booked the hotel 2 years previous to the day we checked out 2 days after our wedding, Paddy, Alan, Deb, Warren and all the staff were absolutely amazing. Their personalised service was exactly what we were looking for, their motto of " let our family look after yours" is a motto this wonderful hotel delivers on, this hotel will go above and beyond helping you make the biggest day of your life the easiest and most fun! The team puts so much energy and enthuasiam into helping you, you feel like your wedding is as important to them as ... Read more

We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and it was by far the best and one of the easiest decisions we made in the whole wedding planning process. We cannot speak highly enough of Paddy, Alan and all of the staff in the Lodge who made our day seamless from start to finish and one we will always cherish. From the fabulous food to the friendly and professional staff, we could not have asked for more. The Shamrock Lodge took all of the stress out of the wedding planning process leaving us to thoroughly enjoy our big day. 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 .

I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge to future couples that are getting married. We had a fantastic day and could not have asked for any more from the Lodge. Alan Mc Caul was very approachable and so easy to deal with all through the planning. The staff were friendly and go above and beyond which made the day even better and it ran so smoothly. My wedding was on a Friday and even tho there was another wedding on Saturday, myself and Darren were not forgotten about and were still made feel at home & accommodated in the hotel. Thanks to everyone who made the day so wonderful. I would love to do it all again!!!

We had our wedding here last Saturday. Over the years we've had many different functions in the Shamrock Lodge. From 21st to Football functions. Each occasion is memorable. 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. It was the best day of our lives and we will never forget what Paddy, Warren and in particular Alan McCaul and all the staff for the way they made our day so perfect. If you're ever ... Read more

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.
by Lynn Craughwell on Wed, 24th August, 2016
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 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
