I'm not the sort of person to write reviews, but we have just spent three nights in Alverna house and it was so good I felt compelled to let everyone know just what a beautiful place it is...Niamh was a fantastic host, friendly, more than happy to take time to talk and answer questions. The rooms are en-suit, large, warm, clean and very comfortable with the feel of a hotel. Having been out all three nights in Athlone we all needed just a wee bit longer in bed than normal. (Athlone pubs are good as well). Niamh was very accommodating and allowed us to have our breakfast at a time that to be honest was slightly embarrassing...and what a breakfast...everything tasty fresh and lots of it, fruit, bread, juice, muffins, cereal and cooked breakfasts as you want. one of our party was coeliac and again Niamh was knowledgeable understanding and accommodating. If you do find you self needing a place to stay whilst visiting Athlone you wont do much better than this. The reviews already on this site I can only add to. It is a beautiful house very family friendly. I have stayed in vastly more expensive hotels that aren't a patch on Alverna House. Highly Recommended.
