Wedding Reviews 2022


Dannielle Spittle and Kieran Ganley, 9th August 2022
Would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge. We had amazing expernce with the whole staff from the beginning of planning to our big day. Food is out of this world. Whatever size wedding you want they will cater from 20-200. We both really enjoyed our day from start to finish. They are the most helpful, down to earth people you will ever deal with and make wedding plainning so much more enjoyable. I had family travel from the UK and all of Ireland and said they would go back. Rooms are beautiful and hotel is stunning. Thanks again, Mr and Mrs Ganley.

We decided to go ahead and contact the Shamrock mostly based on feedback from other people who had attended weddings at the hotel before and were very pleased with all the service. And we are very glad we had taken this route, because the Shamrock team were amazing and competent with the ceremony and dinner. Mary was with us through the whole process and made sure all our requests were attended to. On the day, we were taken care of with utmost care and that made the day unforgettable not only for us, but for our guests as well, whom only had great things to say about the service provided, like the abundance of food and drinks for reception and dinner and its quality. Looking forward to our 1st year anniversary dinner. Thank you, Shamrock Lodge Hotel.

Recently had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge, Paddy, Alan & staff went above and beyond to make our day special. We highly recommend any couple who are thinking of getting married to check out the Shamrock Lodge Hotel.

A HUGE thank you to The Shamrock Lodge for making our wedding day the most perfect day. From the moment we contacted you back in 2020, we knew that this was the place we wanted for our marriage. I don't know where to start with our thanks really as we were completely blown away. Our guests cannot stop saying how perfect the wedding venue was too. The organisation and communication was fantastic from day one and we knew we were in very safe hands. The accommodation, rooms and apartments were fab and a big shout out to Debbie, who had to deal with the constant changes (she has the patients of a saint and went beyond and above to sort our guests). The day itself went so smoothly, the rain didn't spoil anything, you guys are so prepared for all eventualities. A huge thank you to all the staff, the chefs, bar staff, waiting staff and cleaners, you were all wonderful! Another big shout out to Alan and Jay who completely knocked it out the park, keeping things both calm and humorous. And a special thank you to Mary, who answered our never ending queries. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Kelly & Eoin

From Start to Finish our wedding was perfect, we have had many occasions in the lodge throughout the years so we already knew we were in excellent hands. The staff could not be more helpful, the food was excellent and table service equally. The management Alan, Warren, Mary, Debbie ,Paddy and Jason were a pleasure to deal with, they helped us and guided us throughout all the planning of our big day and made everything stress free. The facilities and gardens are kept in pristine condition and made for excellent pictures, the cleanliness of the hotel and rooms are a credit to them. I could not recommend the Shamrock Lodge highly enough for a wedding venue or in fact for any function. They most certainly live up to their motto "Let our Family Look after yours" they went above and beyond this. Excellent Hotel, excellent group of people.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue to hold our special day. From the initial wedding booking right up to when we checked out the day after the wedding, Mary, Jason, Paddy and the rest of the staff at the Lodge looked after us impeccably. We had a few requests regarding menu adaptations and personalizing the room with our own decorations and nothing was too much trouble. We had a few guests with special dietary requirements (diabetic, vegetarian etc.) and they were well looked after on the day in terms of food and drink as were all of our other guests. The day itself ran so smoothly and stress free due to the efforts of Mary, Jason and the entire staff. They never stopped all day ensuring that everything was perfect.

The hotel was spotless clean, the rooms were spacious and comfortable, the staff were so welcoming and the food (and portion sizes!) was absolutely out of this world. Their grounds make the absolute perfect backdrop for your wedding photos and we didn't even need to go off site to get them. The gardens and surroundings are so well kept and our photos came out beautiful because of this. Our guests are still raving about the whole day and have said it was the best wedding they've been to. We'd highly recommend booking your wedding here, you won't be disappointed. This was our third wedding date due to the pandemic and throughout the rescheduling process and uncertainty, Mary couldn't have been more helpful or understanding. They really take their slogan of "Let our family look after yours" so seriously and execute it perfectly.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Shamrock Lodge for making our wedding day exactly how we envisioned it and MORE!! (If we could give this hotel more than 5 stars, we would!)

Ciara Hynes and Paul Lally, 20th May 2022
I couldn’t rate the Shamrock Lodge Hotel highly enough! Everybody involved in our wedding from start to finish was amazing! A special thanks to Alan, Mary and Warren who were so accommodating and welcoming. Nothing was too much! The service and food on the day were fantastic. We had such a fabulous day. Ciara & Paul.

Mary Farrell and Damien Gill, 13th May 2022
We would highly recommend Shamrock Lodge Hotel as a venue for your wedding. From day 1, the staff were so helpful. No request was too big or small. Paddy, Alan & Mary were so happy to help us with anything we needed.
Our special day ran so smoothly, thanks to all the staff.
The excellent food & efficient service made our day perfect.
The beautiful venue and gardens were perfect to capture our happy moments.

Myself and my husband decided to get married in the Shamrock Lodge as nearly all big events in both of our families have been held here so it was very close to us. The staff are absolutely brilliant at their jobs and would help with anything you asked. Alan and Warren were the main two in helping us organise our special day and they both went above and beyond, the ceremony room was just beautiful and the dinner reception was amazing (can never go wrong with their food). You see most couples on their wedding day totally stressed out but I can guarantee that won't happen with this amazing team, I would highly recommend getting married in the Shamrock Lodge, absolute quality service and not just to the newly married couple but to all their guests!!


Laura Cunnane and Colin Harrington, Saturday 30th April 2022
Myself and Colin couldn't have had a better wedding day. Paddy, Alan, Warren and all staff in the Shamrock Lodge were so attentive to us and guests throughout the day. There was nothing that couldn't be done. We asked, we got. It really is a family affair. One family looking after another. I could not recommend the Shamrock Lodge enough for future brides and grooms xx

Catherine Quigley and Aidan Browne, 8th April 2022
We had our wedding reception at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel Athlone and I cannot recommend them enough! Alan went above and beyond to accommodate us. After almost 2 years of postponing due to covid, we had our day and it was everything we wanted. Thank you to the management and all the staff at The Shamrock Lodge.

Orla Quinn and Niall Daly, 2nd April 2022

3 weeks today since we had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and what a day. Can’t thank all the team enough, they went over and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, from start to finish we were able to relax and enjoy every minute. Thanks Alan, Paddy, Warren and all the team, ye are brilliant at what ye do, Orla and Niall.

Sonya O' Beirne and Paul Mulvihill, 4th March 2022
Paul and I had such an amazing experience with the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, our go to hotel as it's family owned and in our beautiful home town. We would like to start by saying a massive thank you to Alan and all the staff, for all their help, time, care and love with our preparations for the big day! The high level of service throughout the day was second to none! The food was exceptional as always.  It was a day myself and Paul will never forget.  We would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel for your Special Day. We cannot thank you all enough and will be forever grateful to all.
