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.

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!

amazing, they catered for fussy people(me), plenty of Vegetarian options and a later in the night a great selection of finger food and plenty of bar staff to keep all the guests happy. The Honeynoon suite is lovely and the balcony over looking the lodge is a nice touch, as is the garden for all the fancy photos. We knew we made the right decision when we booked The Shamrock Lodge and would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a wedding venue. You won’t be disappointed.
