Our host seemed genuinely nice and friendly, and wanted to make sure we were all set to have a good time. The long loft room was very spacious for my son and I, though a bit stuffy, and there was a step up and back down between the beds and bathroom that despite warning, was hazardous in the middle of...

Location is ideal as it is close proximity to the town centre and is close to everything. The B&B itself is lovely and spacious the rooms are lovely and is also quiet. Would definitely stay there again

We stayed here for 1 night and would certainly stay again. The rooms are basic,comfortable and very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Location is excellent with some of the best bars and restaurants right on the door step. We look forward to our next visit.

Take a look at the photos of Bastion on the website - it's a breath of fresh air! We stayed in the loft room which was full of plants, windows, and eclectic artwork. The beds were comfortable and the room clean, with a reasonable rate even with the drama festival in town (by coincidence). Although there was not hot breakfast,... More

My daughter and I found this place on line before our September trip a couple of years ago and I always meant to review it, as it so deserves a good one. I called Anthony from the US to ask a few questions about driving from Dublin to Athlon and he was very helpful. I just cannot imagine anybody not... More

We went to a Thai restaurant literally a stones throw away kin khao which was lovely then to various pubs and clubs athlone has to offer. We walked everywhere,... More

Stayed for 1 night only, room a bodge-up of all sorts of materials, poor shower not working very well, mirror over sink not central, plenty of money at 70 euros, should be 40-50. Breakfast was very good.

I stayed in this b&b two nights this week and was really delighted with it. The décor is amazing, lots of quirky pieces and plants. The owner was really helpful and patient, and was kind to point out places to eat or go walking. Great location too in the quaint left bank of the town. And even though I've been... More
