A great place for a night out in Athlone
The hotel was really nice, but the street outside was noisy until well after 1.30 am when we got back.

Quirky and well-run
Interesting and unusual wee place - proper starched white bedding and a comfortable mattress but informal, with slightly gap year decor. None of the coldness of some guest houses or the social discomfort of the kind of B and B where you feel you are in someone's house, although in fact the friendly and efficient owners do live in a wing of the building. Plenty of privacy. Tea and coffee-making facilities available in the comfortable kitchen/sitting room rather than in the bedroom. Lots of good books around to borrow, and good art work to look at.

Good choice
Not your typical B&B. Interesting place. Good location. Pleasant host. Lovely breakfast. Comforable clean room. No parking finding a space was a lot of hassle. But would recommend

Little gem in the centre of town
Had a great stay here for 2 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. It's located in the middle of the old town, very close to the bridge so that the whole town is very accessible. A good mix of free breakfast choices. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable. There was some live music at a nearby venue, but this stopped by an 11pm curfew? (Would affect any venue in the area though). I'll be back for my next trip
