Treated like royalty. After a year of lockdowns I was looking forward to, if not totally excited about our first night away at the Wineport Lodge. We weren’t disappointed. For the first time I really understand what “being treated like royalty” really means. Norma greeted us with a glass of Prosecco and we were walked to our room at the furthest point of the hotel where it was so quiet and restful. Room was large, immaculate and great views over the lake with some work going on but not over the weekend.
Lunch was fabulous and the crab and salmon slider is highly recommended. As lunch was a little late I wasn’t very hungry for dinner at 8.30.
Dinner was indoors at a very safe table where the Caprese salad was light and very tasty. I had Baked cod for main course which was cooked to perfection and was soft and delicious. To finish I has rhubarb crumble with Kilbeggan organic oats and thick yogurt which was excellent.
A fabulous meal with a few glasses of Macon Lugny was just what I needed.
For breakfast I had the full Irish which was very tasty with lovely coffee and brown bread which set me up for the day.
While the food was exceptional the service was six star.
Norma, Jane , Ray and all the team were so welcoming and friendly it really made me feel like royalty.

Beautiful place. Stayed here on the 22nd of December for 1 night. Felt very safe. Staff were so polite and efficient. Views of the lake are simply beautiful. Food was very good in the restaurant. Really enjoyed having breakfast in room. Will definitely return.

Great stay, felt very safe. Everything was right about this staycation - all the staff wore masks at all times, social distancing in the bar and restaurant. Room was lovely with a view of the lake, food was absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

It was the best place I've stayed in! The setting, the staff, the massage, seaweed bath all brilliant and just what we both needed. It was during semi lock down at level 3 but felt safe at all times. Breakfast in room at no extra cost. It was a perfect birthday. Certainly will return.

Spectacular views and scenery surrounding the hotel. Lakeshore laps up to your verandah. Staff very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was very nicely presented and the food was excellent. Couldn't fault the whole experience. Roll on next time!

Our weekend away at Wineport had everything you could wish for the location, the facilities, the welcome. The room was fabulous with a great view of the lake and the excellent restaurant and bar made for very enjoyable evenings. We can't recommend it enough.

Our family had a great visit here for a special occasion. From the minute we arrived the hospitality was lovely. Our dinner was exceptional - the attention to detail is excellent, the flavours and quality was fantastic. We had a great night and we envy people who have this wonderful restaurant in their locality.

What can I say...this is the first time I have ever returned from a 2x day break with hubby leaving totally relaxed and recharged. We had a suite with private balcony overlooking the lake, the views were outstanding even for October. Our room had everything you could ask for - morning newspaper delivered every day, fresh milk, choc brownies, cottonbuds, bathrobes with slippers. Welcome note, chocolates and card on arrival. Huge bathroom with shower and free standing bath, heated floor. Walk in wardrobe. Food was amazing in restaurant. Staff were very friendly. We used the free courtney BMW bikes and went for a cycle and used the outdoor hot tubes. I can not recommend this hotel enough and can't wait to return

We weVre there with a group and arrived on a Friday evening to cosy wood fires and mulled wine. My room was lovely, with views of the lake. A very comfortable bed and the bathroom was spacious and warm. We'd dinner in the Restaurant and it was delicious. I shared a seafood platter to start with and had fish for my main course, both lovely. Would certainly return again.

Just home from two night stay at Wineport Lodge. It was absolutely excellent. Staff very professional, efficient and friendly. Accommodation spotless and very comfortable. Location out of this world. And to crown it all superb food. Would strongly recommend. I definitely plan to go back to such to such a unique ambience.

We cycled the Old Rail Trail from Mulllingar to Athlone and on to Wineport Lofge. We were met with a very warm welcome. If you are looking for a very comfortable yet informal stay with excellent food and friendly professional people then this is the place for you. As for the lake view. Well!

This is our second visit to Wineport Lodge and first away trip with baby and just like the first time we stayed here the staff were brilliant(especially with getting babies bottles sterilised)!! The room was beautiful and the food is gorgeous will definitely be back.
Adrian - Trip Advisor - July 2018
Visited the Wineport for a mid-week birthday/end of term break. Cannot say enough about the staff - reception, restaurant and house-keeping - friendly, helpful, kind. While the good weather helped, the setting on the edge of Lough Ree is stunning - sun-sets were just magical. Food was tasty and plentiful. The Champagne Suite was beyond description.
Kebris - Trip Advisor - June 2018
We haven’t been here for a while work/work, well that all changed this weekend. The greeting from the staff was as if we had been here last week. The ambience was/is so restful. The food superb and the views awesome., this evening it is calm and balmy. It’s a treat your self venue.

Went here recently with a group of friends for a hen party. We had an absolutely fantatstic time, the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The rooms were a good size and had a beutiful balcony overlooking the lake. The dinner was gorgeous, as was the breakfast. And the hot tubs the morning after were the perfect cure, with such a gorgeous view of the lake. The hotel is just heaven and I can't wait to go back again.

We visited to celebrate Mothers day and received a warm welcome from all the staff at Wineport Lodge. Fabulous views from every aspect of the Lodge. The afternoon tea was excellent and served by friendly and helpful staff. We had a special afternoon and will definitely be back to enjoy a dinner some day at the lodge.

Just on our way home from The Wineport Lodge,after spending a well needed break and even though it was just the one night, for the husbands birthday, it certainly was relaxing and cosy. What a beautiful place especially with all the christmas decorations and log fires at every turn. The hotel is extremely child friendly, board games and books in the lounge and the staff were all fantastic, great with the kids. Siobhan at reception even came and found us when our room was ready but as we were having some lunch she whisked the girls off to show them the room amd they loved being made a fuss of. Food was fabulous, can't fault it at all . It was the little things though,ginger bread men in the room for the girls, birthday wishes and balloons on the table for dinner, which I did not organise!! Just lots of lovely touches that a lot of places don't even bother with. Can't recommend it enough, fantastic for a chilled night away.

Love that this place isn't too far from Dublin - a really relaxing two night getaway that ticks all the chilling out boxes - super comfortable bed, friendly staff, delicious food, beautiful views, spacious bedroom & bathroom, big tub, big flat screen tv, complimentary breakfast to your room with papers. We totally relaxed and unwound - perfect place for it. Thanks to all the staff!
Catarina - Trip Advisor - November 2017
The location, our room, the restaurant, quiet relaxing bar and above all the staff were fantastic. If you're looking for a couple of days somewhere to unwind, relax and smell the coffee, Wineport Lodge does exactly what is says on the tin!
Polymer - Trip Advisor - October 2017
‘This cedar-clad log cabin style lodge jutting out onto the lake shows the midlands at its most alluring,’
Manchan Magan - Irish Times - 2016
‘Imagine a secluded wooden hotel built on the edge of a beautiful lake, with windows facing west; balconies on which to drink in the heavenly, endlessly changing views; wood-burning stoves; superb cuisine – and a delightfully relaxed vibe. That’s Wineport!’
