I spent one night in a single room in the Bastion. The b&b is around a five minute walk from the centre of Athlone which is across the river. Its located beside the castle and has many excellent restaurants and pubs in the immediate vicinity. My room was very warm, despite the cold weather outside and was comfortable. The service was excellent with very helpful and friendly staff. I was advised on booking that there was only one single room left and that that room did not have ensuite facilities. Therefore I shared the toilet facilities with another room. I paid forty euro. I would stay at the Bastion again but I would not recommend a room without ensuite facilities to others.
