What our Guests Say:

Aoife Dooley and Seamus Kiernan, 10th Sept 2021
We had our wedding day at Shamrock Lodge Hotel on 10.9 21.

It was the best day of our lives. Paddy, Alan, Warren and all the Shamrock staff went above and beyond for us and our guests. The service was second to none. Our guests still speak of how it good the food and service was. Anything we
 asked of Shamrock nothing was problem. I highly recommend this hotel and if I could give it ten stars I definitely would as they deserve it.

You will not be disappointed if you book your wedding here

It's a 5 stars from us.

Where there is tea, there is love. This bride and groom’s wedding cake was mad as a hatter! A wonderful delight to the eyes, with an insane level of creativity.

Absolutely amazing!

From start to finish the hotel was so accommodating we couldn’t thank them enough. From the wedding coordinator to the waitstaff everyone was so lovely. We had no issues with anything as whatever we wanted or needed was taken care of straight away.

talking about our wedding weeks later, especially the food. This was stunning!

We are so sad our day is over, but thanks to the hotel and it’s amazing staff it is a day that has left us with zero regrets. If we could do it all over again we would definitely pick the Shamrock Lodge to do that.

We don’t have enough words and will be forever grateful for such a special day.

wedding on Thu, 18th of August, 2022
After 4 date changes we got married on 18th August 2022. Paddy, Alan, Warren, Mary and all the staff couldn't do enough for us. From the start of our planning they made us feel so relaxed and no request was ever too much for them.

We can't recommend the Lodge enough for any couples planning on

wedding on Fri, 2nd of September, 2022
We had our wedding day at the Shamrock Lodge Athlone.

It was a fantastic day. The hotel staff were amazing throughout the whole planning of the day and the running of the day.

Mary and the team are fantastic at settling your nerves and making you feel comfortable. Nothing was ever an issue

from the first meeting we had with Alan to book our dates with him. Very much a family vibe and feeling about the place.

All our guests have commented that it was one of the best wedding venues they had attended, and the food was amazing. If we can recommend anything, it would be more of that amazing veg soup on the menu. 5 courses of that would have gone down just as good.

10 star rating for everything.

We held our wedding at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel at the end of May this year. From the moment we had our initial meeting with Warren way back at the start of 2020 we knew it was the venue for us! Unfortunately due to COVID we had to postpone the date and the hotel could not have been more

accommodating. I cannot speak highly enough of the service that we received from Alan and his team, every member of staff we spoke to along the way was so friendly and helpful. There is very much a family feel to the hotel and they cannot do enough for you to make your day special, from accommodating those personalised requests to answering numerous emails along the way! We got blessed with the weather on the day, and without any issue the hotel allowed us to make that last minute decision to have our drinks reception moved to the garden and had it beautifully set-up for when our guests arrived. The dinner and timeliness of service on the day was also excellent, although I would expect nothing less as they are well known in the area for the quality of food on offer. I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel to anyone thinking of getting married in the Midlands, my only disappointment is that we can't do it all over again!! :) A sincere thank you to Paddy, Alan and all the team at the Lodge.
