Guest reviews for Shamrock Lodge Hotel

3 out of 5
Pros: Space. Nice sized room on a large campus. Parking was easy, and it was close enough to the town center to walk.
Cons: Food.
No matter how tired or hungry you are, don't eat at the hotel restaurant. After a week of eating great good all around Ireland, this was by far the worst meal----and we weren't expecting much to begin with. Hotel reception recommended we have the nightly special, but twenty steps away, our waiter said that the special didn't apply on a Friday night. We stayed at the Shamrock because our flight out of Dublin changed to an earlier departure, so we thought Athlone would be a cute location, and closer to the airport. It was the only vacancy in town. Parking was plentiful and its location made for a pleasant 8 minute walk to Sean's Pub, downtown near the river. We could hear plumbing sounds from all the neighbors, but I'm sure we were the worst offenders---showering very early the next morning. It was clean enough, the Internet worked, and it was reasonably priced. Book it if it's the only option in town.

Easy walk to town

Pros: Closeness to town
Cons: Definitely needs updating - Bit tired and dated
Location: Boating on River Shannon - Athlone Castle Museum - Beautiful countryside
Chose this hotel as it was close to family and an easy meeting place for everyone
