I was just passing through Athlone and needed a B&B. I stopped at one place but she wasn't open yet, however she directed me to the Arch House. She should get a kickback. This was a terrific place to stay on the fly. The guy who greeted me at the door was quite congenial. The location was right in the middle of a rather gritty city, so I expected perfunctory treatment at best, but the staff was all very friendly and welcoming. My room was clean and well maintained. My room did face the street and the outside noises did intrude, but I always travel with earplugs so this was no problem for me. After a certain time, things quieted down quite a bit and I had a very good night's sleep. The traditional Irish breakfast was well prepared and my request for hot oatmeal was readily fulfilled. I really appreciated the off-street parking. If I ever pass through Athlone again, I'll be stopping here. Within walking distance of anything you'd need.
