Your Dream Day

at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel Athlone

At the award winning family owned and run Shamrock Lodge Hotel, we pride ourselves in offering a unique Wedding location for one of life’s most momentous days. We are committed to one wedding per day and take great pride in attention to detail and looking after your every last wish to ensure your day is all you dream and more. Our team ensure personal service throughout and our motto is ‘there is no question too small’!

From the moment you enter the elegant reception area you will find a warmth and graciousness which sets the style for the entire hotel. Throughout, the emphasis is on beautiful surroundings and traditional Irish hospitality. At The Shamrock Lodge Hotel “you will begin your married life with your family and with ours”. Whether it’s helping to arrange your ceremony or hosting your reception, we can handle everything with an experienced and friendly approach. The family team have been giving happy couples their professional assistance for 30 years and are only too happy to guide you with any aspect of your day from menus and table plans to recommending photographers, cars, cakes and florists.

Couples can enjoy an entire fairytale day from their exchange of vows in the beautifully decorated John McCormack Suite and later dine and dance the night away in our John Broderick Banqueting Suite which creates a superb setting for guests to relax and enjoy the occasion.

Extension renovations have taken place at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in the past few years on our John Broderick Ballroom, our beautiful gardens, our Ath Luain Restaurant and our new Bistro complete with outdoor dining area. These continuous improvements show our dedication to offering the best possible venue and service to our guests. We have also learned, grown and adapted to the ever changing needs of our wedding couples over the years understanding that times are changing, wedding requirements are changing and with that our flexibility is expanding to meet every couple’s requirements. After all, it is your day and it should be how you dream it to be!

We welcome you to come and meet the team to talk through our Princess Grace Package and to utilise the experience that we can extend to you during one of the most exciting periods of your life. For more information, please contact our Management Team on 090 649 2601 or email
