2020 Award Winners A TASTE OF THE WATERWAYS AWARD 2020

Wineport Lodge Glasson Co Westmeath

Wineport Lodge

Ray Byrne and Jane English’s unique shoreside lodge overlooking Lough Ree started life in 1993 as a rustic restaurant with themes echoing life around the river and lakes - and, although it now has thirty beautiful rooms (all with private balconies overlooking the lake), a hot tub and treatment rooms - the lovely contemporary restaurant remains its heart, serving fine meals with warmth and professionalism. A great example of sustainable development, the food experience here has always been about seasonal local produce and a formal meal in this stunning venue is a special outing - but it’s also ideal for Afternoon Tea or a casual daytime bite in the bar, and this giant of the inland waterways makes a perfect journey break.
