What our Guests Say:

Olive McGrane and Cillian O'Shea, 1st Sept 2018
We had a fantastic wedding day thanks to The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. We were treated so well from start to finish by Alan, Mary, Nicola and all the staff. Nothing was too much to ask and they handled everything beautifully. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food was and how friendly and welcoming all the staff were. We truly had a magnificent day and were treated like family.
Thank you so much, Olive and Cillian :)

Amanda Glennon and Niall Cunniffe, 14th July 2018
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 have ever been at. The food was fabulous, the decor was gorgeous and the service was outstanding. On your wedding day, you want to be able to relax and enjoy yourself, and thanks to the care and attention to detail from the team at the Shamrock Lodge, that is exactly what we did.


The most important day of your life deserves a special setting and that setting is The Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone. Tucked away at the end of a tree lined avenue on our own beautiful grounds and well manicured gardens, there is no better backdrop for your wedding photographs in Athlone.

On behalf of Orla and Maurice, We would like to thank all the staff that were involved in arranging, organising and helping out with getting the venue of the Shamrock Lodge ready for our wedding day and catering to all our guests last June 14th 2019. From the start to the end, everyone was very

helpful and professional. The staff went far beyond our expectations and really couldn't have helped us anymore than they did. Mary the wedding co-ordinator was excellent at taking any of our requests for the day and planned everything meticulously. Alan also did an amazing job on the day by managing everything and making sure everything ran seemlessly. We also want to thank Paddy for having an amazing venue and all was very presentable and the gardens were kept very well and tidy. The Honeymoon suite was fabulous too with its very comfy bed and spotless room, the balcony was great too as we were able to watch the sunrise in the morning as our first as Mr and Mrs. The catering staff were great as there was no delay in getting any of the food out to everyone all at the same time. They were very helpful and courteous and always made sure that any requests were seen to. The chef couldn't have done any better as the food was very tasty and well presented too so top marks to the chef and kitchen crew. We can see how the Shamrock Lodge has won so many awards in the past as the whole experience was perfect with a very well managed team of staff to help out and deal with everything. Thank you all for having us and our wedding at your venue and we hope you have many more years of success in the future.
Yours sincerely,
Orla and Maurice.

From our very first meeting with Alan we knew we were in good hands. Although we were only a small wedding party all our requests were met. I stayed the night before the wedding in the princess Grace suite which was lovely, complementary bottle of bubbly to calm the nerves.
Everything went smoothly

I can't say enough about the shamrock lodge Hotel. Myself and my husband niall were married here on 10/08/19. We had both our reception and ceremony here and it was magical from beginning to start. Anything I asked of Mary, Alan, Warren or any of the staff was answered. They really do go above and

beyond. From a checklist at the beginning, meetings in between to finalise all the minute details, to a list of vendors nearby, which I thought a lovely touch. As a family run venue it is really lovely to know they support local business. If I could use one word to sum up dealing with the lodge it would be personal. You really aren't just another wedding, you and all your guests really are vips. 100% recommend the shamrock lodge Hotel for your big day!
