History and Guests

Visitors to The Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone Co Westmeath sometimes ask where it got its name. One theory is that an early owner of the lodge was a member of the Freemasons whose Athlone branch was known as Shamrock Lodge 101. While others say that the grounds around the house was famous for shamrock.

The house began its life as the home of Micheal Monks in 1814. It was established as an Athlone hotel in 1951 by the late Mr.Frank Coen and was later owned by the Colgan family and  purchased in 1993 by the current owner Mr. Paddy McCaul. The hotel is strongly supported locally in Athlone and underwent a redevelopment in 2005 adding 40 Deluxe & Superior Bedrooms and  12 Two Bedroom suites which are the very best family accommodation Athlone has to offer. The redevelopment also included renovations to bar and lobby areas as well as a new function & Conference/Meeting room - The Shannon Suite perfect for meetings and events Athlone.

As one of the finest hotels in Athlone Co Westmeath it has welcomed many distinguished guests during the last century including Queen Salote of Tonga, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco, former U.S. ambassador to Ireland William Taft III , former Presidents of Ireland Sean T. Kelly and Dr. Patrick Hillary, former Taoiseach Mr. Jack Lynch.
