We stayed one night here, but wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were lovely, the bed very comfortable, lovely linen and our hosts were very friendly & welcoming. Breakfast consisted of so much choice it was hard to decide! Definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed here on 28/5/2015. Mark and Linda make you feel most welcome in their home. The property is well maintained and decorated to a very high standard. There is a wide choice of breakfast food and the full Irish is freshly cooked. Ideally situated about 10 mins walk into Athlone centre. Highly recommended.

Shannonside House is in a quiet residential neighborhood in Athlone, about 10-15 minutes walk from the city center. We were greeted by Linda and shown to our room -- spotlessly clean and comfortable. Linda gave us directions to town and recommended a couple of places to eat. Breakfast the next morning was prepared by Mark and was delicious! Linda and... More

We arrived from an early morning flight and received a lovely welcome from Linda. We had booked online and did not know what to expect. The place was beautiful, cosy and close to the town of Athlone. We were home for a communion event so booked in for 3 nights, we were treated every morning to a breakfast of choice.... More

We stayed one night at the Shannonside House, and can highly recommend. The owners are lovely and made us feel right at home. The B&B is in a quiet neighborhood, but a very easy walk into downtown Athlone for castle, dinner, pubs and a trad session. Rooms were nicely decorated, and a good size with plenty of shelf/closet space. Full... More

We stayed at Shannonside for two nights in September 2013 but have been remiss in writing a review until now. From the moment we arrived we were made to fell very welcome by Linda and Mark. The B&B is located in a quiet area just a short walk into town with ample parking which was very much appreciated. The house... More

We stayed with Linda and Mark on our march through Ireland in September. Their B&B was on a quiet street and we walked into town for dinner. They also have plenty of parking which was appreciated as one values all little things which make driving easier. The breakfast was good and carried us for the day. We recommend them without...

Our group arrived on motorcycles and Linda and Mark could not have been more welcoming. We were soon directed to the secure parking at the rear to keep our pride and joy safe and sound. The rooms were spotless. It is in a great location with only a short walk to the oldest pub in Ireland (Sean's Bar), what more... More
