Nicola and Dermot Sammon, 31st December 2017
We just had our wedding day in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on New Years Eve and it was absolutely amazing! The staff were so nice and accommodating. Each and every team member was so friendly. The hotel itself is beautiful and so much effort was put in to making our day so special. The food was amazing. Nothing was too big of a request and the day went so smoothly thanks to all of the helpful staff. I would recommend the lodge to anyone getting married. A special thanks to Paddy, Alan, Warren and Mary for making our day so magical. It really was the best day ever Mr and Mrs Sammon Xxx
Michelle and Mike Flanagan, 30th December 2017
Myself and my beautiful new wife Michelle had our wedding reception here on December 30th 2017. We were treated like royalty for the whole weekend. The staff and food were excellent all of our guests said it was the best food they had ever eating at a wedding and that the staff were so friendly and accomodating. Thank you so much Paddy and Alan and all your staff for making our day the special day it was. I would highly recommend THE SHAMROCK LODGE HOTEL to anyone planning a special occasion.
Phyllis and Robert Kilmurray, 24th March 2017
Finally getting around to thanking Alan, Warren, Paddy & their team. Our wedding was just so perfect. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. The Shamrock Lodge took control and planned everything (for us in such a short time) from the ceremony, reception, our meal & the after party. Alan was fantastic throughout the day, he was constantly checking to make sure everything was fine and running smoothly. The staff that were working were brilliant, the food was amazing and the service was excellent. We have had and still have so much positive feedback from our guests and it's all positive and complimentary to the staff and hotel. We can only speak so highly of Alan, Warren and Paddy as they went above and beyond for us. Our wedding day was the most relaxed, stressfree, enjoyable day, it was just perfect in everyway and that's thanks to management and staff from THE SHAMROCK LODGE HOTEL. We would highly recommend them to look after a big day that's so special and ours was made extra special. Thanks again for everything. From Philly & Robert Kilmurray xx
Maureen McCann and Johnny Garrett, 4th November 2017
When I first started looking for a venue for the wedding I read the venue reviews. Of course they were all very positive but what stood out for us was the fact that the Lodge was portrayed as a family run and nothing would be too much trouble ethos.
As I was organising my wedding from London it was vital that I worked with an organised wedding planner and Mary was just that.
We stayed at and visited other hotels, however although pleasant, modern and a bit corporate the friendly feel with every request being met, meant that the Shamrock Lodge could not be beaten.
The Lodge gave us the personal touch and all our guests were blown away by the superior service that they received, the amazing food and huge rooms. Some of the guests are planning a return visit.
From the bottom of our hearts a huge thank you to all the staff at the Shamrock Lodge.
Aisling Cooke and Daniel Keyes, 5th October 2017
We had our Wedding in the Shamrock Lodge on 5th October and what a day. We attended a Wedding Fair held by the Lodge and met with Paddy and instantly fell in love with the place and ended up putting down a deposit there and then. Mary, Paddy, Alan and Warren genuinely could not have done any more for us. Every email I sent with all the silly questions was answered promptly by Mary. They treated us and our families with such kindness and respect and nothing we asked for was too much trouble. The little details on the day went down a treat like the kids activity packs and the sweet cart. I cannot thank the staff enough for all they done for us.
Pam Clinton and Steven Tobin, 3rd November 2017
We recently got married in this hotel and we couldn't have asked for nicer people to deal with. Mary the wedding coordinator is an absolute star and so amazing at what she does. Alan, Paddy, Warren and all the staff were so good to us and made our time in the hotel the best ever. I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of getting married, the food was fantastic and our day ran very smoothly. Thanks so much for everything!
Lauren Devine and Enda Aughey, 25th October 2017
We had our wedding day in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel a few days ago and it was absolutely fantastic! The staff are the nicest and most accommodating that I have ever come across. Each and every team member was so friendly and warm. The hotel itself is beautiful and there was so much effort put in to making our day excellent. The food was amazing and beautifully presented! It was an easy choice for us to choose this hotel for our special day. Nothing was too big of a request and the day went so smoothly thanks to all of the helpful staff. I would recommend this hotel to anyone getting married it's the best around! If I could give a 10 star rating I would as they completely deserve it. A special thanks to Warren, Mary, Alan and Paddy for making our day so enjoyable. Xxx
Jenny Marshall and Warren Somers, 26th October 2017
Where do I start, from the minute we booked we were giving the royal treatment. They catered for our every need and even changed the menu for us with a week to go to. Food was fantastic. Ballroom decor was fantastic, the entrance room was lovely and cosy and bedrooms were spotless. Thanks for everything Alan and team. The effort the staff put in to food and decor was top class.
Louise and Sarah Lloyd-O’Neill, 8th September 2017
We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on 8th Sept. From the minute we choose the Shamrock Lodge they were so helpful in every way possible. From Organising the little things to sorting rooms, menus, seating arrangements, music, you name it. They take so much pressure off you. The food was amazing and the venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We would like the thank all the staff for making our day so enjoyable and special and we would like to say a special thanks to Warren, Alan, Paddy and Mary. We would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel for your wedding!
James Murphy and Elaine Green, 16th September 2017
Myself and Elaine got married in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on the 16th of September and we cannot recommend them enough! From our time of booking, to the wedding they are so friendly and easy to chat to. No ask is too big and they go out of their way to be as helpful as possible! The hotel is beautiful with a warm homely, friendly atmosphere and their food is absolutely delicious. Every member of staff is extremely friendly from the receptionists, to the floor staff to the bartenders and managers. We cannot thank them enough for everything they done for us on our big day. Their gardens are also a must see! Hope this review helps other brides and grooms in picking this venue, we wouldnt have gotten married anywhere else! 5***** + more. Thanks to all at the Shamrock Lodge for the perfect wedding.
Caitriona Lennon and Gerard O Brien, 1st September 2017
I cant speak highly enough about the Shamrock Lodge for a wedding. The hotel itself is fab, the grounds are lovely for photos etc and the staff are just exceptional. I mainly dealt with Mary and Alan and they are amazing. They couldn't do enough for us in the lead up to and on the day of the wedding and the day went off without a hitch because of them. They make you feel right at home. I would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding at the Shamrock Lodge. You wont be disappointed :)
Elaine Kilmartin and Billy Fitzpatrick, 29th September 2017
Thank you so much to Alan, Paddy and the staff of the Shamrock Lodge for such an amazing couple of days. Ye went above and beyond in looking after us all, I would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding or any function there. And Warren you're a star for putting up with all the bridesmaids the night before with the organisation of everything, lol. Thank you all again.
Elaine & Billy xxx xxx
Aisling Breen and Anthony Coffey, 22nd September 2017
Got married here on Friday and everything was perfect from the moment we booked. They made sure everything went smoothly for it and really helped to make our special day perfect. The dining room was lovely, everyone spent the evening complimenting the delicious food and the beds were super comfy. What more can I say but thank you for an unbelievable experience. Can't recommend them enough, thank you so much to everyone there for all your help and hard work in making our day as perfect as it was.
Fiona Kenny and Gary Holohan, 12th August 2017
From the early stages of planning the wedding we were left in no doubt we had chosen the right venue for our wedding. Mary, Paddy, Alan and Warren were exceptionally helpful with any requests in the lead up to the big day. They were always available for help and advice to us prior to the wedding. They were very flexible with any requests and made every attempt to make our day run as smoothly as possible. On the day itself again their experience shone through, the service, the staff, the food, the venue itself were fantastic. Alan was constantly there to put us at ease and take care of anything that popped up. All the guests (particularly those from out of town) were very impressed with the venue and the high level of service provided. We would like to thank the Shamrock Lodge for all their help and for making our day extra special.
Carole Ryan and Michael Manning, 18th August 2017
We had our wedding here on the 18th August and had an amazing day. We cannot thank the staff enough for all their work, their attention to detail is unbelievable and they were so accommodating to every request we had. Our guests raved about the food and service. We would highly recommend the Lodge to anyone.
Aoife and Ian O' Reilly, 7th July 2017
The only question we had when it came to planning our wedding was 'when will we go to the lodge to book our date' it was the only choice for us. From that point onwards Mary and Alan were so helpful, informative and professional while also putting us at ease. They ensured us we would have a brilliant wedding day. They didn't disappoint. The John Broderick suite is such a fantastic setting. The country garden surrounding the suite was manicured to perfection and it really enhanced our wedding theme. We were thrilled with how well it turned out on the day. We would like to compliment the entire staff and management at the Shamrock lodge. Throughout the day and night they were all so accommodating and friendly to us and our guests. We look forward to celebrating many more occasions at the Shamrock lodge and we cannot wait for the next 'lodge wedding' because we know it will be a good one.
Celene Connolly and Eamon Kelly, 31st August 2017
Top class from our first chat with Alan to the few times we were there!! They honestly took all the stress away from the wedding that could possibly go awry! They all made me feel so special and like a true princess on the day from start to finish!! Didn't want the day to end! The 2 rooms we had the service and the food were all top class! Could not fault them in any way!! Can't wait to renew our vows cos would do it all again!! Myself and Eamon got married the 31st of August!! Thanks so much xx
Helen Crehan and Tommy Morgan, 26th August 2017
Helen Crehan and Tommy Morgan had our wedding reception here on Saturday 26th August 2017. What can I say actually no words to describe our experience we had on our wedding day here. We were absolutely spoiled rotten by every member of staff. Nothing was ever too much or little for them to deal with. I have to give a special thanks to Mary, Alan and Paddy for everything they did. An unbelievable hotel. Such memories we made that day and all that's to the shamrock lodge hotel Athlone. Thanks again everyone xxx
Caitriona and Patrick Doolan, 25th August 2017

Lorraine and Gary Taaffe, 10th August 2017

Everything was perfect, the food was amazing as always and the staff were great. Our day couldn’t have gone any better, thumbs up all round. Thank you so much for giving us a wonderful day.
Roy and Carolina, 11th July 2017
We had enquired with a few places before we decided to have our wedding day with the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and none were particularly interested as it was a small family wedding. This could not be further from the truth with the Shamrock lodge hotel. The service we received was absolutely outstanding. From the first phone call we made until the day we left we could not have asked for anymore. Mary who we planned our day with was exceptional. It is rare to meet someone who goes above and beyond what is expected to the extent she did. This is someone who is professional, patient, considerate, kind and does things with such a good heart. No request was too big or small. She made us feel more than special. Along with the other staff who catered to us on the wedding day we could not have been happier. The food was delicious. Our room for the wedding was beautifully decorated. Simply fantastic.
The Shamrock Lodge Hotel are an example to other hotels in how to provide outstanding customer service. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you so much again for everything. Roy and Carolina.
Kimberley and Malcolm, 2nd June 2017
Myself and Malcolm got married on the 2nd of June. We were so trilled by the day itself and we found the shamrock lodge an amazing venue. We did not have to worry about anything every thing went perfect. Mary Glynn shun for me. We felt she really made our day stress free. Paddy and Warren made us feel very special. The grounds of the lodge are truly the best in Athlone and so private. We would love to do it all again. Many thanks to all the staff in the lodge Alan Paddy Warren and Mary 10 out of 10
Rachel and James,17th June 2017
The Shamrock Lodge was the perfect venue for our guests to celebrate our perfect day, Paddy, Alan, Mary and all the staff offered first class service from the moment we came to view the venue 12 months ago until the day we left after our wedding, this was the first time many of our guests visited Ireland as we are from London and the Shamrock Lodge was perfect as it's only a short walk into town where our guests were able to enjoy the many exciting things Athlone town has to offer. No request was to big for the amazing team & everything was made simple and as easy as any bride would want, especially organising from overseas. I just wish I could do it all again as the day was a true fairy tale & ever single thing was perfect. We will definitely be coming back to visit with our friends as we all had such an amazing time,
Rachel & James Curran xxx
Rebecca and Derek, 30th June 2017

And on the day they were just outstanding, I had the best day ever and they just made it so easy welcoming and stress free so thank you so much for everything. It will never be forgotten.
Karen and Ray, 23rd June 2017
Massive thank you to Alan, Paddy, Mary, Warren and all the staff in the Shamrock Lodge for making our wedding day a dream come true! The thing I loved the most was that even though they have weddings there all the time, they treat you like yours is the most important wedding they have ever done. You feel like a VIP the entire time. They make u feel at ease because they are so professional at what they do and I didn't have to worry about a thing. It all went like clockwork and I couldn't fault a thing. This is a family run hotel and it really makes all the difference as they can put the personal touches to your day. Nothing was too much hassle for them to do. If you book your wedding here, you won't be disappointed!!

The Shamrock Lodge is just a fantastic hotel, nothing is to much of a challenge for them. We could not have asked for more on our wedding day. The staff are excellent and friendly, the food is fantastic, the hotel is spotless & the rooms are immaculate, Definitely a 5 star from us.
Laura and Desmond, 21st April 2017
I found the Shamrock Lodge Hotel Athlone to be an extremely professional & personal venue. Alan, Paddy & all staff were so helpful, approachable, considerate & friendly. They have an absolute passion to provide the best possible wedding with a genuine interest in the couple. The Shamrock Lodge Hotel provided an outstanding menu & impeccable table service, this was a resounding compliment from my guests. The whole experience was second to none from start to finish. I'd highly recommend the hotel to any newly engaged couples. A pleasure to deal with.
Michelle and Declan, 28th April 2017
If anyone is considering having the Shamrock Lodge Hotel as their wedding venue please do not even hesitate! It is absolutely amazing and the staff could not do enough for me and my husband on our big day. We felt so welcome and looked after from the moment we enquired about having our wedding reception there! We are so glad that the Shamrock Lodge Hotel could help us make our day so special and amazing!
AnnMarie and Martin, 27th April 2017
A really great day was had by all at the Shamrock, the hospitality was second to none, highly recommend. Can't wait for the next event there.
Suzi and James, 8th April 2017
The Shamrock Lodge absolutely pulled out all the stops to make sure my wife Suzy and I had the best day possible, we cannot express how much we appreciate all their support leading up to the day and especially on the day itself, thanks so much guys!
Niki Browne on Fri, 6th January, 2017
I would recommend the Shamrock Lodge to everyone especially if you are looking for a amazing wedding experience. Thank you Alan, Paddy and Warren who went above and beyond for us.
Eleanor and Daragh Keegan on Tue, 29th November, 2016
Daragh and I got married on the 30th of September this year in The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. We had what could only be described as a truly beautiful civil ceremony in a wonderfully decorated room. Alan and his team were excellent in the service they provided to us, They could not do enough for us in the run up to our special day and on the day they exceeded all our expectations to make the day truly memorable. We would not hesitate to recommend The Shamrock Lodge to any other couple planning there own big day. Many thanks to Alan and all the staff for their help and guidance, we had a wonderful day. Thanks again, Eleanor and Daragh.
Valerie and Derek on Tue, 29th November, 2016
Alan and all the staff in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, thanks so much for making our wedding day so magical, the food was fantastic and staff very friendly. We felt so welcome. Definitely would recommend this hotel for weddings. Thanks again guys.
Mick and Rhonda Devlin on Thu, 24th November, 2016
The Shamrock Lodge Hotel is without doubt, the best venue to have your wedding. The grounds in which the hotel is situated are very picturesque and ideal for all your wedding photos. We had our full wedding, ceremony and reception at the Hotel and the Management and Staff were very professional. There was nothing they wouldn't do to help out. The food at the reception was top class and was served very quickly. All our guests complimented us on our choice of venue and remarked that not many of them knew the hotel existed. The Bridal Suite had been upgraded during the year and was very warm and comfortable. All in all we were extremely happy with our choice of venue for our very special day and would have no hesitation in recommending The Shamrock Lodge Hotel as an ideal choice for your wedding.
Damien and Roisin Milton on Tue, 22nd November, 2016
We got married in The Shamrock Lodge on January 2nd 2016 and I cannot compliment the Hotel enough for the way we were treated. From our initial meeting with Paddy and Alan McCaul, to when we checked out of the hotel after the wedding, we felt part of the family that is The Shamrock Lodge. The hotel was decorated beyond our expectations when we arrived and I have to admit a wow factor when we saw how the Ballroom was prepared and presented for our reception. The food which was served was of 5 star quality, and substantial amounts of it, and it was commented to us on the day by our guests and indeed many times since how delicious it was and indeed how it was presented. The attention to detail by staff on the day was noted by all but it would be remiss of me not to mention the duty manager of the day, Warren Samuels, for his professionalism and courteous nature shown to us and our guests. Any request we had on the day was dealt with immediately and without any fuss. All in all we cannot thank and praise The Shamrock Lodge Hotel, and their wonderful staff, for assisting us in making our wedding day so memorable. Damien & Roisin Milton, November 2016
Olivia and Tim on Tue, 22nd November, 2016
On 17 May 2014 my husband and I had our wedding reception at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. From the day we booked the hotel 2 years previous to the day we checked out 2 days after our wedding, Paddy, Alan, Deb, Warren and all the staff were absolutely amazing. Their personalised service was exactly what we were looking for, their motto of " let our family look after yours" is a motto this wonderful hotel delivers on, this hotel will go above and beyond helping you make the biggest day of your life the easiest and most fun! The team puts so much energy and enthuasiam into helping you, you feel like your wedding is as important to them as it is to you. We live in Sydney and planning a wedding from there at times could be stressful but we never worried about our venue. We met with Paddy several times before the big day, he personifies the word "True Gentleman". We would've been lost without his support. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, the hotel went above and beyond on the day with their service and hospitality. The Shamrock Lodge is the only place, I believe, in Ireland anyone should get married! You would not get this personalised service from other multinational hotels. Our guests were from all over Ireland and the world and they are still raving about the hospitality that was shown to them on our wedding day. Thank you Paddy and all your fantastic team for making us feel like we were the first couple ever getting married at your hotel! That's how special you will feel at the Shamrock Lodge! They make dream weddings come true! X Olivia & Tim
Brioni and Shane on Tue, 22nd November, 2016
We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and it was by far the best and one of the easiest decisions we made in the whole wedding planning process. We cannot speak highly enough of Paddy, Alan and all of the staff in the Lodge who made our day seamless from start to finish and one we will always cherish. From the fabulous food to the friendly and professional staff, we could not have asked for more. The Shamrock Lodge took all of the stress out of the wedding planning process leaving us to thoroughly enjoy our big day. So many of our guests commented on the great food and lovely homely atmosphere apparent in the hotel. We are so happy we celebrated our wedding in the Lodge and would highly recommend this hotel.
Rachel and David on Tue, 22nd November, 2016
We had our wedding at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel on the 30th of May 2015. From start to finish, Alan and the team at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. Everything that we asked for was taken on board. As for the day itself, it was perfect. Nothing forgotten and everything went better than we could have expected. The ball room looked amazing. After dinner our guests were taken to another reception room for dessert . This really added to the atmosphere. To say the food was delicious is an understatement. People are still talking about it. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Quality food and service. A day we will never forget .
Martin Murray on Tue, 15th November, 2016
5 star treatment by all, got married there last year and without a doubt all at the Shamrock sincerely made it the best day of ours lives. Forever thankful, Mr and Mrs Murray.
Katie & John McCrossan on Tue, 15th November, 2016
"The staff of The shamrock lodge hotel could not do enough for us on our special day. No ask was too big or too small. The hotel was recently redecorated and looks amazing and we were wowed by the banquet room when we walked in, it looked magical. Our family and friends commented on how amazing and friendly the staff were, how amazing the food was and how fabulous the hotel rooms were. I cannot thank you enough for the fabulous day John and I had for our wedding. Everything we asked of Alan and his team was never a problem and he couldn't do enough for us! From the moment we met, I knew what an amazing man Alan and his team would be in organising our Big Day and he certainly went above and beyond for us. The sincerity and friendlessness of welcomes we received any time we were over was superb and our families and friends are still raving about you all.We have a great connection with the hotel now and can't wait for more visits. "One of the greatest days of our lives", Katie & John McCrossan
Mairead and Darren, October 2016
I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge to future couples that are getting married. We had a fantastic day and could not have asked for any more from the Lodge. Alan Mc Caul was very approachable and so easy to deal with all through the planning. The staff were friendly and go above and beyond which made the day even better and it ran so smoothly. My wedding was on a Friday and even tho there was another wedding on Saturday, myself and Darren were not forgotten about and were still made feel at home & accommodated in the hotel. Thanks to everyone who made the day so wonderful. I would love to do it all again!!!
Sharon and Phil, October 2016
We had our Wedding on the 13th October 2016 and The Shamrock Lodge Hotel was the only choice for us when finding a venue. Thank you so much to Paddy, Alan, Warren and all the staff for making our day so special. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. The room was beautiful, the food was amazing and the service 100% we really felt like we were at home and your family definitely looked after ours!! We keep hearing “Best Wedding Ever” from all our guests, they really enjoyed every part of the day. We would highly recommend The Shamrock Lodge Hotel for anyone who wants a wonderful day with those personal touches.
Natasha and Niall, October 2016
To anyone thinking of getting married and would like it to be a stress free time, The Shamrock Lodge Hotel has it all. The management and staff are there for you anytime to help with all your needs, not least the food it's just fab. We couldn't thank them enough and the day was all we asked for and more.
Niamh and Damien, September 2016
Well, where do I begin?! We had the most amazing experience here in The Shamock Lodge Hotel. From the day we first visited and met with Alan McCaul we were hooked. Alan was so down to earth, realistic and unbelievably helpful and accommodating. We had looked at numerous venues prior to visiting the Shamrock Lodge but none of them were on par or had a wedding coordinator as personable as Alan. We told Alan exactly what we wanted and he arranged everything without having to have meeting after meeting with us. It was straight forward and effortless for us and we had the most amazing day of our lives here under the care of Alan, Warren and their team. The food was incredible! Our guests are still raving about it almost 3 months on. Booking this hotel was the best choice we ever made - it made our wedding! I cannot thank Alan, Warren and team enough for the exceptional job they did for us on our big day, it was incredible. Thank you! :)
Angela and Richard, September 2016
We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on September 9th and from our very initial inquiries with Mary Glynn, the wedding co-ordinator, everything went like clockwork. Everything was so well organised. The hospitality was fantastic, the food was excellent and the staff were so helpful and friendly on the day. Even the night before I was onto the hotel a few times, checking if different items were delivered to the hotel and they were so responsive and pleasant to deal with. It was so easy and stress free. Having the civil ceremony in the hotel was very convenient for the elderly guests at the wedding. The bridal suite was beautiful, breakfast the next morning was fantastic and all the staff were so friendly. Everyone who attended the wedding told me afterwards how much they enjoyed the day and commented how excellent the food and service was. I would like to thank Paddy and Alan McCaul and Mary Glynn for all their time and effort and indeed all the staff at the Shamrock Lodge for making our day so special. I would highly recommend it to any couple who are planning their big day!
Thomas and Nicki, August 2016
We had our wedding here last Saturday. Over the years we've had many different functions in the Shamrock Lodge. From 21st to Football functions. Each occasion is memorable. When we planned our wedding, the first thing we wanted was to have our reception in the Shamrock Lodge. Through the years we have attended numerous weddings and had great days and nights, so for myself and Nicki this was the place for us. Last Saturday we had our ceremony and reception in the Lodge. It was the best day of our lives and we will never forget what Paddy, Warren and in particular Alan McCaul and all the staff for the way they made our day so perfect. If you're ever planning a wedding or any function, don't pass up on the opportunity to make it special in the Lodge. Their slogan is 'LET OUR FAMILY LOOK AFTER YOURS'. And that's exactly what they did. Thanks all and we will never forget our day.
Tammy and Kenneth, August 2016
I can't thank the management and staff of The Shamrock Lodge Hotel enough for helping to make our day so magical. From start to finish you catered to our every need. We are still getting compliments from guests about the food and hospitality provided. Ye went over and beyond. Not only that, the beautiful grounds catches some fab snaps and great memories. I would highly recommend ye. The Shamrock Lodge has been our families first choice and will continue to be for future functions. Thanks again so so much.
Tara and Michael, August 2016
We had our wedding in The Shamrock Lodge Hotel in August this year. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough, the management and staff welcomed us from the onset and couldn't do enough for us. On the lead up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding they went above and beyond to make it a day to remember. They have recently done up the ballroom, bridal suite and gardens and our photos turned out amazing. The food can not be faulted it was so tasty and the portions were plentyful. The hotel itself has a very family friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Lynn and David, August 2016
Fantastic hotel for a wedding reception and lovely location to visit Athlone town. We had our wedding here in August, friends and family travelled over from England and stayed Thursday to Sunday, they could not compliment the Shamrock enough! The staff are happy and friendly, the food is fabulous and fantastic value for money. All I can say is there is a sprinkle of magic poured over the Shamrock when they host a wedding that can never be captured on any website or review. A big thank you to Alan, Paddy and all the staff that made our wedding such an amazing experience for us and our guests. Lynn and David, 5th August 2016.
Caragh and Neil, July 2016
We cannot praise the Shamrock Lodge enough for the wonderful wedding day that we had. We came over from England to get married in my families home town and the staff were brilliant from start to finish. It made the whole process so much easier for us as a family. Mary the wedding planner was extremely helpful and with the help of all of the staff made sure our special day ran smoothly. We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a wonderful day and those personal touches - you are treated as one of the family from the minute you walk through the door. It will be a day that stays with my husband and I forever and one that the guests are sure to never forget!x
Robert and Catherine, July 2016
Great day had by ourselves and our wedding party. The Shamrock Lodge, Paddy and Alan and staff were highly professional in how they run the day for the bride and groom, all done in the best way possible. The food is excellent as is the service by both waiting staff and bar staff alike. The surrounding gardens make a great location for the all important photo gallery of the bride and grooms big day. We had a ball couldnt fault the performance and professnalisam of all at the Shamrock Lodge. They stand by their motto (let our family look after yours), 10 out of 10!
Lisa and James, July 2016
From the day we booked our wedding reception with the Shamrock Lodge we knew that we would be looked after so well. Warren, Alan, Paddy and all the staff here made our day so special. Everything about the hotel was perfect, the gardens are fabulous, food was amazing, the hotel has a lovely character to it and the recently renovated ballroom is amazing. We would recommend the Shamrock Lodge to anyone looking at having your wedding reception there, you will not be disappointed!
Anne and James, June 2016
Myself and my husband celebrated our wedding in June in the hotel. I literally cannot praise the management and staff enough. They were simply amazing, our guests are still raving about the food, the friendly staff and the lovely homely vibe and electric atmosphere that was in the hotel the entire weekend. The management were outstanding catering to our every need/request in the build up to our big day. The whole team in the lodge worked so hard for our 300+ guests the entire weekend. I really felt everyone lived up to the hotels motto of "let our family look after yours".... It was literally a home away from home for three days! Thank you all for an unforgettable weekend and really making our wedding extra special!
Sinead and John Michael, June 2016
To Paddy, Alan, Mary and all the staff, thank you so much for a wonderful day! The food was delicious, everyone complemented the food, we wouldn't change a thing. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful in every way. A few of our guests are booking their weddings with you soon .Thank you so much again ☺
Lisa and Pat, June 2016
We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on June 11th 2016. From the word go Alan couldn't do enough for us, from our pre wedding meetings down to the fine details. On the day itself everything was just perfect. The food, the decor and the service was 100 per cent. Without hesitation the Shamrock Lodge is in my opinion the best wedding venue in the Midlands. Thanks Alan and staff for making our day just perfect!
Fiona and Thomas, May 2016
We had our wedding at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel in May. I have to say we were very happy with the whole day. The food and atmosphere were excellent, the staff couldn't do enough. I would highly recommend this venue for any event. Thanks again for making our day so special.
Sinead and Oliver, May 2016
Could not recommend a better hotel to have your wedding reception. Alan, Warren and all the staff were just so professional and catered for our every need. The reception room looked fabulous and the food was amazing. When we booked The Shamrock Lodge Hotel for our wedding, we knew it was something we would not have to worry about. We would honestly not have had our wedding anywhere else.
Catherine and Karol, May 2016
The Shamrock Lodge Hotel was just outstanding. From when we first met Alan, we knew we would have no worries. He is so brilliant to work with, and no job is too big for him. The Shamrock Lodge did everything in their power to ensure our day went off without a hitch, and it did! They promise quality and excellence, and we got it. Any request we had, big or small, was met. I found them so helpful. The food and service for our wedding was excellent, and I guarantee you, you wouldn't go hungry! Overall, our whole experience from our first meeting with Alan, the whole way through until our big day, and even throughout our big day, was brilliant. Alan is a real hands on manager and we appreciated him checking in with us throughout our day making sure we were happy with everything. A beautiful family run hotel with a relaxed, stress free atmosphere. Couldn't recommend it enough to any couple!
Noirin and Feargal, April 2016
We got married in The Shamrock Lodge in April 2016. It was the only choice for us when finding a venue as my family have always gone to The Shamrock Lodge over a long number of years and always received a five star service. From the minute we made contact with Alan we received a very professional but personal service which was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. There is nothing that we asked for that Alan didn't make happen for us and he went above and beyond what we had expected. He is also a very warm and easygoing guy while at the same time you know that he is reliable and has it all covered . The hotel looked amazing on the day, the food was beautiful and the staff were all so good. There is such a good team in the Shamrock Lodge that all played a big part in making our day so special to us, our Family and Friends. We could not recommend The Shamrock Lodge enough to anyone getting married as it really is the Best!!
Aine and Damien, April 2016
We got married in the lovely Shamrock Lodge on the 23rd of April 2016. We had heard rave reviews from some friends that got married there and from the minute we spoke to Alan, the manager, and looked around with him, we could see why it was so popular. We had also both been to a lot of weddings here and the food and atmosphere was always lovely. From the get go Alan, Paddy, Mary and the team were so good to deal with. Nothing was too big a request or too silly a question. At our meal tasting we got enough food to feed a small army and Alan was so open to any of our suggestions. On the day itself we had a ball. The food was great, everyone was raving about it. We got a lot of comments from people saying they felt it was very relaxed and the hotel was very homely. We were so delighted that people had a great time and that feedback was positive. The barmen were also very obliging to us late into the night and we all had a blast, no one moved us out of the ballroom and they let us continue on with our sing song with no hassle. We had a lot of guests stay over the second night and again the hotel was so good and they really looked after us on the second night too. Overall we are so delighted that we picked the Shamrock Lodge in Athlone. We are in a town packed with hotels and venues for weddings but I would have no hesitation in recommending here as it is family owned and run, the staff are so good to deal with and we had an amazing day. Thank you so much, Áine & Damien Ryan
Angela Kenny (Mother of the Bride), March 2016
On Friday 18th March 2016 Nessa Kenny and James Carter were married in the fabulous Shamrock Lodge Hotel. From the first day we met Alan McCaul he could not have been more accommodating. Everything we mentioned or needed was not a problem. Nessa and James really enjoyed the tasting before the wedding. On the eve of the wedding we went there to decorate the room. Alan wouldn't hear of it. He said his staff would do it, and boy did they do a spectacular job. Everything was done to perfection. The room looked fantastic. Onto the meal. There isn't a hotel in Ireland that would have served such a meal from the starters to the main courses they were fantastic as everybody agreed. Service was extremely fast, food piping hot and beautiful to taste. The staff, from the waiters waitresses, bar persons, were so welcoming, attentive, polite. The girls on reception were second to none. Anything that was requested was looked after in a professional, courteous manner. Nothing was a problem. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean. The bedrooms were beautiful and the bridal suite fabulous. I hope I did not leave anything out. All I can say is that I highly unreservedly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel for your wedding. Thank you so much Alan and all your staff. Photos to follow which you may wish to post on to your page. Kind regards, Angela Kenny (Mother of the Bride)
Nessa and James, March 2016
From the very bottom of our hearts James and I would like to thank the management and staff of the Shamrock Lodge for making our wedding on Friday so special. We could not have asked for more from a venue, everything was perfect from the attention to detail in the room, to the food, to the atmosphere. We have been inundated with compliments on how well everything went and how great the staff and service was. It was honestly faultless. We had a fantastic day. We cannot rate the Shamrock Lodge high enough, they were so helpful and accommodating they made the planning of the day so simple and stress free.
We recommend anyone who is looking for a wedding venue to call down to them and have a chat with Alan.
Thanks again for everything, Nessa & James ♥
Janette and David, March 2016
I have to say that the Shamrock Lodge and all the staff were excellent, they were there every step of the way for us and the food I can't compliment them enough it was perfect. The Shamrock Lodge is definitely the place to have a wedding.
AnnMarie and Damian, February 2016
A massive thank you to Warren, Alan, Paddy and all the staff of the Shamrock Lodge Hotel for making our wedding day the most perfect special day ever. The ballroom was stunning and exactly as we wanted it to be! The food, the service and the attention to detail is first class. Without a doubt the best hotel around for a wedding.
Selina and Michael, February 2016
My wife and I got married on the 13/2/16. From the day we booked with Paddy and his son Alan, we couldn't have asked for a more friendly and useful service. If we need a penny they would give us a euro in return. The most nicest friendliest family hotel and staff we have ever met. From doing up our dinner list to sampling it, there wasn't one fault. They tried to meet our budget as much as we tried to make sure they were happy too. As for the food itself, everyone has complemented us on the choice but there is no way we could have done it if it wasn't for the staff of the Lodge. They were the ones who cooked it, to serving it, so we know we couldn't have had a good experience without them. Thanks so much and if anyone ever wants to ask just give the Lodge a ring and I know for a fact they won't hesitate in answering any questions.
Niamh and Ray, October 2015
Myself and Ray got married here on October 2015. It was perfect from beginning to end. The Shamrock Lodge Hotel was our first and only choice for our wedding! The food and service on the day was amazing and all our guests could not stop talking about how good the food was! Huge thank you to Alan and all of the staff for making our day perfect and stress free!
Sarah and Alan, October 2015
We had our wedding here on the 3rd October 2015. Everything was outstanding. Alan was so easy to deal and made sure that everything was perfect. Everyone we dealt with were so friendly and helpful. Our guests are still complimenting the amazing food and service which you all provided. Could not recommend ye highly enough. Thank you for making our day amazing.
Amy and Eoin
From the day I got engaged I knew I would be having my reception here. The hotel was fab. Paddy,Warren,Alan and all staff members were outstanding. They could not have possible done anymore for us and gave us a reception we would never forget! The whole day was brilliant. We had a big wedding and nothing was a problem to them. They were so professional. I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge for your wedding reception. It's like home from home & you really are treated like one of the family! Thanks again! Amy&Eoin Fox.
Elena and Eddie
I can safely say on our wedding day, one of the few things I had no worries about was our reception in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. Alan, Paddy and all the staff could not have done more for us and made us and our guests feel more welcome and comfortable. Nothing was an issue and no request seemed to be a problem. We would like to thank everyone at the Shamrock Lodge for everything they did for us.
Deirdre and Patrick, September 2015
To Alan, Paddy & all the staff at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. Patrick & I would like to say a big thank you for such a beautiful amazing day. Our wedding day was on the 5th September last. From start to finish Alan you were great, you were so helpful and made sure our day was perfect in which 100% it was. The Shamrock Lodge Hotel is such a great place for a wedding or any occasion with excellent food and staff, everything was perfect. We would highly recommend this hotel to any couple getting married. It really is 10 out of 10 service. Thanks so so much again.
Sandra and James, July 2015
If you are looking for a fantastic venue for your wedding, we 100% recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone. We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge on the 18th of July 2015 and couldn't be happier with the venue we chose. The hospitality from Alan & Paddy McCaul and all the staff was top notch. Everyone we dealt with was friendly, helpful and down to earth. From the very first meeting with Alan, the General Manager, we were made to feel welcome and that nothing would be a problem with planning the wedding. We live in Australia but even this huge distance was no problem as we had numerous calls and emails with Alan to keep us up to date with anything we needed to do. Nothing we asked for was an issue, they really are professional and make the whole wedding venue planning process actually easy and fun! We, our families and guests had a fantastic weekend. We honestly cannot fault anything. We received so many compliments about the food and service, everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after perfectly. Alan was personally there for the whole wedding day to make sure we were happy and that everything was running smoothly. The hotel has been newly renovated and all of our overseas guests were very impressed with the rooms. We also took advantage of the lovely gardens and different areas of the hotel for our photographs on the day. Our whole wedding experience was amazing thanks in a large part to the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. We really look forward to going to my sister’s wedding there next year.
Haley and Rory, June 2015
The Shamrock Lodge staff were incredibly helpful when planning and executing my entire wedding day. They worked with my family in planning because I live in the States, along with countless emails back and forth. When my husband and I arrived, they went over all of the decisions that were made. The staff made sure everything was perfect for us and our traveling wedding party. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to us as guests.
Denise and Eddie, June 2015
Myself and Eddie had our wedding reception here on Saturday the 27th June 2015. Big thank you to Alan and Paddy McCaul and their staff. They were absolutely fantastic! Their hospitality and food was outstanding. Myself, Eddie and our guests were warmly greeted and well looked after throughout the day and night. You were absolutely brilliant. We couldn't have asked for any better. We would highly recommend The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. Once again, thank you from both Eddie and I for an absolutely fantastic day. Everything was just perfect and we will definitely be back in the near future.
Valerie and Derek, June 2015
Alan and all the staff in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, thank you so much for making our wedding day so magical! The food was fantastic and staff very friendly. We felt so welcome. Definitely would recommend this hotel for weddings. Thanks again guys.
Elaine and Geoff, May 2015
From the moment we started our planning for our wedding May 1st 2015, we knew the Shamrock Lodge was the only place for us. We had planned a festival theme from the get go and Alan, Paddy, Warren and all of their team could not have been more accommodating. With over 50 coloured Chinese lanterns and metre upon metre of bunting to be hung, they never made us feel like any request was too much and that was just the start of our decorating. Our entire day was made memorable by how easy Alan had made everything for us. Our day flowed naturally without a hitch only made possible by the attention to detail and dedication to perfection that the Shamrock Lodge has. All of our guests commented on the warmth of atmosphere in the hotel and how welcome they were made to feel. Our meal was spectacular in taste, timing and presentation, and a credit to the kitchen and waiting staff. We will never be truly able to capture in words how grateful we are to the management of The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. Each time we called to the hotel even for minute details we were always greeted with a smile, a coffee and a warm welcome. They made our day the success it was. Ours was the plan, but they executed every last detail better than we could have ever imagined. They will share a special place in the memories we have of our wedding.
Rachel and David, May 2015
We had our wedding at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel on the 30th of May this year. From start to finish, Alan and the team at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. Everything that we asked for was taken on board. As for the day itself, it was perfect. Nothing forgotten and everything went better than we could have expected. The ball room looked amazing. After dinner our guests were taken to another reception room for dessert . This really added to the atmosphere. To say the food was delicious is an understatement. People are still talking about it. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Quality food and service. A day we will never forget .
Deirdre and Padraic, December 2014

We were delighted with our decision to have our wedding at The Shamrock Lodge, Athlone. Sharing our day at a family run hotel made it very personal. All the staff were amazing. The management, the office staff, the receptionists, the room service, the kitchen and the bar staff were all on hand and happy to help with anything we required. The attention to detail was fabulous, not just on the day but in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding. We really felt that we were taken care of and nothing was too much to ask for. The gardens and the hotel looked perfect on the day and they were ideal for our photo shots. The food and service was top class. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Shamrock Lodge to any couple looking for a wedding venue

Good advice was always provided when asked and nothing was too much to do. The hotel looked beautiful on the day of the wedding.
