Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your review. I am glad that you were well looked after but apologise for the noise of the Guinness truck. I hope you were not disturbed too much. Kind Regards, Alan McCaul General Manager Shamrock Lodge Hotel

Nice hotel

Pros: Room, food.
Cons: A proper smoking area for guests instead of outside the main reception.
Location: Was here for work, did not get the opportunity to sight see.
A fantastic room, a fantastic breakfast in a quiet hotel with good wifi and utilities. A nice bar area and scenery. I would recommend a stay here.

Always friendly and no fuss

Location: On beautiful grounds within walking distance of some of the best restaurants and pubs in Athlone. It's only €5/6 in a taxi if you want to go further
I stay here on short notice quite a bit. The staff are always organised and there is no fuss- if you need anything they are there, and they love recommending places to eat/go out in town. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with lots of space. One of my favourite hotels.

Rauhallinen sijainti

Pros: Huone oli tilava, siisti ja lämmin. Vastaanotto, oleskelutila, ravintola sekä baari ovat tilavat ja viihtyisät.
Cons: Mikäli mahdollista, niin televisioon tulevan lähetyksen laatua. Kuva oli ajoittain heikko. Hiustenkuivaaja voisi parempi.
Mukava, viihtyisä ja sopivan kokoinen hotelli. Ihana piha. Hyvät pysäköintimahdollisuudet. Hieman huoneeseen kuului liikenteen ääniä, jotka eivät kuitenkaan olleet kovin häiritseviä. Kaupungin keskustaan kävelee reilussa vartissa.

L'hôtel est éloigné du dizaine de minutes à pied du centre ville (mais très éloignée de la gare), se trouve dans une zone calme et très agréable. Le personnel de l'hôtel est accueillant et très arrangeant. Les chambres sont spacieuses et l'ambiance romantique. Bémol concernant le bar de l'hôtel, si l'on souhaite si restaurer le soir compter environ 50 minutes pour recevoir son plat, dépendamment bien sûr de la commande.
