ROMANTIC RETREATS IN THE IRISH LAKELANDS – THE PERFECT MINI-MOON
Wineport Lodge is a stunning lakeside retreat on the shores of Lough Ree in County Westmeath, Ireland. It’s just 60 minutes from Dublin yet offers total tranquillity and the ultimate romantic retreat with its newly-launched Love Suite Love package, perfect for a luxury getaway or a mini-moon to treasure forever.
Priced at just £445 per couple, the package includes two nights in a spacious lakeview suite with breathtaking views and your own private balcony, a bottle of Bollinger champagne, a bouquet of red roses and chocolate-dipped strawberries in your suite on arrival, a delicious dinner in the hotel’s famed restaurant, full Irish breakfast in bed each morning and a romantic boat trip on the lake.
Wineport’s acclaimed restaurant features regularly on Irish TV and offers delicious locally-sourced cuisine. The 29-bedroom family-run hotel is also a popular choice for weddings, thanks to its intimate, luxurious ambience and unique waterfront setting.
Loved-up couples will adore the hot tubs where you can sip cocktails as you watch the sun set over the lake, and the spa treatment suite where you can enjoy a spot of pampering. The team at Wineport can also help with individual requests, whether you want a Champagne picnic for two on the pagoda overlooking the lake or a private yacht to collect you from the hotel’s jetty.
Nearby attractions include the charming town of Athlone – home to Ireland’s oldest pub, the Lough Boora Parklands for spectacular scenic walks, Kilbeggan Distillery – the oldest licensed distillery in the world, and the magnificent Belvedere House Gardens and Park.
