One of our unplanned nights in Ireland. Stopped at a booked inn and was advised to stay at this one. The lady even called ahead for us. What a wonderful place, unfortunately we could only stay one night. It's right in the middle of a beautiful town. The facility is gorgeous and the bar unique. Breakfast wasn't our favorite but...

My friend and I spent the night in The Prince of Wales Hotel in Athlone. We chose it for its convenience, being halfway between our two addresses, and for its central location. Staff were friendly and welcoming, in a fuss-free environment and we could not find fault with any part of our overnight stay. We chose not to dine in... More

We recently had a 20 year college class reunion at the Prince of Wales Hotel and Bar. The staff were friendly, helpful and very cooperative and looked after us so well. A fantastic location and would highly recommend it.
