Wineport Lodge Hotel Westmeath

wineport tourist destination on Luxury hotles Ireland

Situated in a small area three miles north of Athlone, bang slap in the middle of Ireland, Wineport Lodge lies on the shores of Lough Ree on the mighty Shannon.

A peaceful spot on the inner lakes of Lough Ree where the tradition of wine drinking goes all the way back to the sixth century when St. Ciaran’s monks discovered the perfect landing place for their precious cargo of wine barrels from France.

The Lodge started life as a lakeshore restaurant and has been substantially upgraded and expanded over the years.

Guests have been arriving by road or water over the years to sample the magnificent food and drink on offer and remains popular with gourmet diners, tourists, corporate clients, the local community, families, golfers and sailors with dining at the lakeside restaurant a pleasure in all seasons with the prospect of watching the open watercolour skies and lake change hue and character by the hour. In fact winter can often be more delightful, snuggled well in from the darkening skies and gathering clouds from your ringside seat warm and dry inside the solid oak building nestled tastefully amongst the canopy of decidious trees.

Like many Irish towns, Athlone has undergone a rejuvenation in the Celtic tiger years, offering all the modern conveniences but its real treasure remains the might Shannon, which slowly meanders around the peaceful and calming ruins at Clonmacnoise, a haven of reflection and solitude for centuries and well worth a visit.
