Travel Talk with Ed Finn

A Wonderful Wineport Weekend

9 minutes | Saturday, July 3rd, 2021

Today on Travel Talk we visit Wineport Lodge on the shores of Lough Ree and discover some great things to do and see in Co. Westmeath - truly Ireland's Hidden Heartlands - The Lodge gets its name from the townland in which it is situated.  As far back as 542 AD, St Ciaran's monks chose the area as the perfect landing place for their precious cargo of wine barrels from France.  First opened in 1993, Wineport Lodge has become an oasis of peace and tranquillity for those seeking to escape the stress of everyday life.  This is a really special place just over an hour from Dublin.    I was very impressed with the wonderful hospitality from Ray, Norma, Brendan and all the team that looked after us so well - Don’t miss a visit to nearby Clonmacnoise, Ireland and what a great place for cycling and boat trips around the lake -  www.wineport.ie #visitwestmeath
