Reviewed 2 September 2013

We stayed here at the end of August as a party of 5 in room 5 the family room. It was a great stay in a great location. The place is clean and refreshingly modern. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay welcome as they provided loads for my 2 children to do. The beds are comfortable with plenty of space in the room. The owners basically provided anything we wanted for breakfast and as i saying were really helpful. The location is excellent as it is only a few miles from Athlone and as we were cathing the ferry the next day Dublin is only really just over an hour away.
We would certainly stay here again Thanks for a great stay. The Braddick family.

We stayed at Alverna House July 29, 2013, and really enjoyed the clean, new and well-built surroundings.
Niamh was very kind and welcoming, made sure of our comfort, and gave good advice for restaurants and sightseeing.
The rooms were quiet and peaceful, and overall this lodge is a nice retreat.
Breakfast was very good, with variety for everyone.
We want to go back, SOON!!
Love you, Niamh

Our room upstairs was huge (two double beds) with 5 star fittings and furniture. We loved the stunning view over the pastures from our bedroom windows! A well balanced breakfast with lots of variety was available. Thanks so much Niamh, for a lovely stay. Andre and Gail.

Stayed in May; had a lovely room with all mod cons and everything was spotless. This is a very modern property and we had a nice welcome and lovely breakfast. Athlone is about 10 mins drive away and has some reasonable eating places.

the owners of this property were more than good and helpful The rooms were spotless and very tastefully furnished. The beds were spotless and comfy. The beakfast was perfect for me fresh fruit salad freshly prepared just what I love as I only eat fruit in the morning. My grandson had a ball playing with Niamh and Ronan childrens tractors and tricycle in the back garden. Best B.B. I have stayed in for a long time. Keep the high standards going.

About 6k out of Athlone, one of the great B&B's. Run by Niamh, it is spotless, modern and convenient to many attractions in the midlands area. We were made to feel very welcome and Niamh pointed us in the right direction in terms of good food in Athlone. The fit out of the rooms and en suites is excellent and the service is friendly and informal. Six kilometres out of town is a bonus!
