1st class accommodation. Great location, only a few minutes drive into Athlone centre. Booked a twin room for myself and my father and we were both thoroughly delighted. Room was lovely and very well proportioned and decorated to a very high standard. Brilliant hospitality from owner. Only had one night but would be more than happy to stay there again.... More

This is a lovely place run by a very nice women who takes good care of her customers. The food was very good and the room was very nice. The only negative would be the location, as you'd need a car to drive to anywhere to eat, drink or listen to traditional music. That said, we'd definitely consider staying here... More

I really liked this B&B. Any corners that could have been cut were not. Chocolate biscuits with the tea/coffee making facilities, bottles of water for the room, a range of toiletries and bathroom essentials, many B&Bs leave these out, but Riverview House does not. Carmel is a very welcoming host and ready to help guests out with anything they need.... More

After flying into Shannon we stayed here our first night in Ireland this trip. Great night. Spotless room. Very well kept B&B and the people were super nice and friendly. We had the "full Irish breakfast" - perfect! Five minutes to town.

The breakfast is absolutely fantastic, one of the best ones I've ever had in Ireland and the rooms are really comfortable, the house is not located too far away from the city and it is easy to find. we had such a great time!

We had such a wonderful time here! The rooms were super comfortable and very spacious. Our hostess was very kind and extremely helpful in giving us advice as to where the best shopping and restaurants were in town along with a map to help us along the way.

Great and warm welcome by the Corbett family. Clean house and rooms. Confortable bed. Very good breakfast on the morning. Very good advices regarding the places to go at night in Athlone. Close to Clonmacnoise and easy to find. About 5min by car to the city centre. Just do not expect having a view on the river, you would be... More
