It's hard to figure out exactly what makes the Wineport so special. I think it because there is no one thing. It's more than just the warm welcome, comfortable atmosphere, excellent service, gorgeous food, location or even the fact that every room faces the water. It's everything together. We just did an overnight midweek stay and it was wonderful. Super...

This is a lakeside restaurant with beautiful views across the inner lakes of Lough Ree. It is well furnished and decorated. The only problem is the price and standard of food. We were very disappointed with the choice and quality. Service was slow. Meals were highly priced for what they were (€17.00 for sausage and mash) Place was pretty empty...

This property was a surprise and I quite honestly I did not have that high of expectations but in every regard expectations were exceeded. The whole staff was unbelievably kind and helpful. The food, service, and overall home feel was excellent. Having stayed at many Aman resorts, the Wineport matched the kindness and at home feel. Clearly it is not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You'll feel the difference the moment you arrive. More than a hotel, this is a luxury lodge with a unique sense of warmth and comfort at every turn. Nestled on the banks of Lough Ree, in an idyllic setting surrounded by native woodland, Wineport Lodge is exceptional in both style and service. With hosts who instinctively ensure your every need is met, here luxury and comfort comes wrapped in easy humour and effortless hospitality. Blissfully located in the beautiful countryside of Athlone, Wineport Lodge enjoys an incomparable setting on the edge of Ireland's peaceful inland waterways. Its cedar clad, log-cabin-style exterior is matched with a tasteful, modern interior that reflects the warm and relaxed atmosphere across the lodge and its lakeside grounds. Famously delicious food is matched by genuinely friendly and expert service. An always interesting Menu changes seasonally with the most flavoursome local produce regularly appearing as a daily special. Rustic in style, unpretentious and always generous on the plate... At Wineport Lodge you're in for a dining treat. Each menu is accompanied by an electric, carefully selected wine list. Glasson Golf Club is just a short boat trip away, and a stroll around the lake begins outside our front door. Wineport Lodge was designed to be in tune with our stunning natural surroundings. It's all about having the maximum comfort with the minimum environmental impact. That's why you won't find a sprawling spa with pool here. What you will find though is nothing short of perfect. Two intimate treatment suites are just waiting for you with a range of VOYA treatments and therapies guaranteed to help you relax, rejuvenate and renew.
