Stayed here for one night on 27/07/2013. Very clean and tidy. Had all amenities we needed. Close to the main areas. 5 minute walkj to Sean's Bar.
Breakfast was good and service was excellent.
Would stay here again.

Far from food and shops; told that the walk was 9 minutes but it was downhill on a narrow road without walkway (so uphill on the way back). Hosts were very friendly and informative; wonderful breakfast cooked to order. Room was sunny with 2 single and 1 double beds. Bathroom was very small with shower only. Room was on second floor with steep, narrow flight of stairs to carry luggage. No table or desk for computer work; few, hidden power outlets. Parking on property.

Room Tip: Nice if you don't want to be in town.

Four of us had a delightful stay in 2 rooms in March 2013. The hosts gave us good advice about things to do and places to eat. We highly recommend this B&B. The short walk into town was easy. The historic castle is worth the visit.

Within easy walking distance of Athlone center, the Shannonside House B&B is a clean, lightsome, comfortable and friendly place with a nice garden to view at breakfast time. There was complimentary off street parking. Shannonside was a large house that offered a more personal experience. Our host chatted with us about the town, providing local flavor and had thoughtfully provided a map of the town.We only had one night at Shannonside but will return!

There is so much to do and see in this midland town! Athlone has interesting walks around the riverbank and in the downtown. Athlone was the surprise of the trip and we wished we had more time to explore the area. Sean's Pub claims to be the oldest operating pub in Ireland and was fun. There were so many great choices of restaurants and we were delighted with the Lebanese restaurant - Al Mezza. We will be back again!

Stayed here last weekend as part of a tour of the region.
Its a little too easy to pass through Athlone en-route to else-where ut well worth considering at a stop over desination.
Good homely accomodation with good off road parking away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre yet within easy walking distance.
Free Wi- Fi & hearty breakfast.

Room Tip: Lots of choice of eateries and bars this side of the Shannon

Only stayed here for one night, but would have no hesitation in staying here again if in Athlone. Bright and comfortable, very friendly, and an excellent breakfast. Seven minutes' walk into the centre (we timed it from the house to Sean's Bar) so handy for all the attractions.

Very friendly b&b. My room I would say was just done up. Soft furnishings were lovely and the bed was super comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic especially the mushrooms. On the downside the breakfast room was chilly and the b&b seemed to be in an estate which I didn't expect. For 30 euro I thought it was excellent value and the hostess wad wonderful.
