This is a classic Irish B&B experience and exemplary of why this was my 5th vacation in Ireland. People always ask why we'd bother to travel here in the cold & rainy winter months, and it's because of places like this. Clean, centrally located, welcoming hosts. We are big walkers and this was very convenient to the city centre.

We enjoyed our night at the Shannonside B&B. We were welcomed even though we arrived early in the day. Our room was immaculate and comfy. The shower water wasn't quite warm enough in the evening but that was our only complaint. Breakfast was yummy. One of the best things about the Shannonside is the location. Close enough to the central... More

Location was great after overnight Air from Florida. We wanted to get on the road, but not too far after being up all night. The location was just right to rest and begin our 15 day journey the next day. The property was very nice, clean, and quiet. The Hosts were wonderful. Athlone was great for dinner and a pub... More

We were visiting for an Irish dancing festival. As we regularly stay in B&B's we are well used to the drill. This one was exceptional. Warm... cosy... spotlessly clean... comfy bed.. exceptional breakfast and very friendly. Also great accessibility. Keep up the good work.

My wife and I recently visited Ireland on an evangelism mission trip to Ireland and London. We had planned on spending two days in the town of Athlone, Ireland. The pastor of the church we were working with suggested Shannonside House and then made our reservation for us. We are glad he did. The house outside is very nice and... More

Stayed with Linda at Shannonside House while making our way from the West Coast of Ireland back to Dublin. Wonderful home. Easy walk to town for sites and food. Linda was great. Large home with nice amenities.

Myself and two friends stayed here at the end of August, the hosts Linda and Mark could not have done anything more to make our stay anymore enjoyable than it was. The accommodation was, as on previous visits top notch, very clean and comfy. They made us feel part of the family, even though we did take the micky out... More

This family-run B&B is a lovely, quiet, spotlessly clean and comfortable place to stay. It's very well located just outside the town centre and Mark and Linda are extremely pleasant and friendly, offering helpful advice and a great breakfast.

I arrived late at night with an elderly friend looking for a B&B, having not booked in advance (recommend you do this!). Mark was extremely helpful and although was fully booked in the main house, found us a room in attached accommodation which was perfect for us. Very comfortable night's stay, great facilities, fantastic breakfast in large dining room. Short... More
