The staff was extremely friendly and helpful however. Emma at reception was very good, the older lady was less welcoming. The breakfast was poor - fruity diet...

We held our family reunion at Shamrock Lodge at the weekend. I can't speak highly enough of the incredible staff from Mary who worked with me for months to sort all the event details to Alan, Warren, Trisha and all the catering and reception staff who couldn't do enough to help us on the day. Thank you so much. Great...

We had a family reunion at the Shamrock Hotel and stayed there for a couple of nights. From the outside it is lovely with pretty gardens. The area we had our reunion in was ideal with plenty of room for the guests and food, as we had a sit down buffet. The food was really good although they were a...

Needed a hotel for one night in Athlone for a family event. Lovely clean room, good bar service, friendly staff. Good value, reasonable breakfast. Ideas for improvement, but not to take from overall experience:- Bedroom was poorly lit, with no central light fitting, and bedside lampshades weak - difficult to read in bed. Breakfast room could do with a bit...

My family was referred by a 'local' to this delightful accommodation, situated in a park-like setting. The staff were brilliant, and our rooms were well-appointed, quiet, and comfortable. We'll definitely return here!!

Just home from a weekend at this hotel. We were a small bridge group, and I think I can speak on behalf of all in the group, we had a most enjoyable weekend. The staff were wonderful, food was very good, and the accommodation was lovely. Would gladly recommend this hotel.
