Where to stay in Athlone

While the eastern bank of the River Shannon has a lot of commercial glitz, many visitors prefer to stay on the western bank in Athlone, where the castle beckons travelers to this lively town. Here you will find the winding streets, cafes, pubs, and historical sites that keep locals and visitors enchanted. There are plenty of hotels to choose from in the area, although bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and apartments tend to have more personality.
