First impressions are excellent thanks to the very colorful and immaculate garden. Next we saw a great stock of logs which the eco-friendly hosts use in their wood-burning central heating. The rooms are well designed and comfortable. Breakfast includes a very nice bread basket with several varieties.

After a long trip to Ireland, and then sightseeing during the day, by the time we got to Shelmalier house we were exhausted and ready for a good nights sleep. We found the B&B clean, quiet, and comfortable, far exceeding our expectations. The proprietors were very accommodating to our needs and were very understanding of our acute jet lag. We could not have asked for Jim and Nancy to have been any nicer. After a great nights sleep we awoke to a wonderful breakfast prepared by nancy, with a selection of fresh fruit, cereal, pastries,bacon, sausage and eggs cooked to order. This was an exceptional way to finish our stay, would highly recommend Shelmalier house to anyone traveling to Athlone!

I recently stayed with Mr and Mrs Denby at their beautiful home which is more like a 5 star hotel than a B&B, but with tremendous warmth and kind hospitality. I arrived with my niece and nephew who are both in their 20's and, they were equally impressed. Mr Denby very kindly offered to take us to the restaurant we were going to and explained the log fire heating system that they have installed in the house as part of their effort to ensure that their house is Ecofriendly. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms were large and cosy. The reception rooms were beautifully furnished too and overlook the pretty garden. Breakfast the next day was probably better than any I have had elsewhere. Congratulations to the owners for striving to provide such excellence. They have hit the mark in every way.

Jim and nancy denby run a perfect b&b ..a beautiful house , very comfortable bed and good pillows... Very important if you want a good nights sleep. Breakfast was a 5star event.well cooked of great quaility. Its these small things that make a good stay great.. Jims rcomendation of the tyme restaurant in athlone was a gem. See separate review .you will need to book in advance most nights as the chief/ owner closes if hes not there...a lot of restuarants should do the same!

My husband, my 3 kids and myself stayed in this b&b 2 nights and it was better than a hotel. Jim & Nancy made us feel very welcome, the breakfast was huge and their house and garden are beautiful. We would go back for sure!
