1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
Athlone, County Westmeath
The apartment which was designed and decorated by Gael, has a wonderfully eclectic and cosy ambience that is unique to this B and B. The apt is open plan, bright and airy with one very comfortable 5ft bed. There is also a camp bed that can be pulled out to accommodate 1 more. The kitchenette is fully kitted out for self catering. There is ample storage space.

My inspiration for our BnB harks back to the B&Bs of old....when you stayed with the family, in their home. Here you can have the best of both worlds....your own space to sleep and eat or our dining room table for meals and company !
Our house is right beside the apt, so we are close by for all your needs or any information that you might require. If you need some sugar.....whatever it is, we will endeavour to help.
If you would like to joins us for breakfast ( €10pp) or...

We've been traveling in Ireland now for three weeks and so glad to have fallen upon this gem. Gale and her family were the friendliest and gracious people we've met in Ireland. The apartment was the best room we've come across and had EVERYTHING you could ever need. Being able to wash our clothes and cook a meal ourselves really...

The apartment is situated in a nice peaceful location. The room itself is spacious and very comfortable, has everything you need for your stay. The hosts were both lovely friendly people and a pleasure to stay with. I would without any hesitation recommend staying here to anyone.

About the neighbourhood
Athlone is a picturesque town on the banks of the Shannon river..the castle ...900yrs old, sits on the banks and is definitly worth a visit, as is the free art Gallery also overlooking the river. The charming left bank area has some great restaurants and pubs with lots of live traditional Irish music and Ireland's oldest bar, Seans.
