Vacations in Athlone

Hi!

I intend to take this vacations to rest, because my boyfriend is working at Athlone.

As Chuck3707 in my other question said, and I searched too, that isn't to many things to do in this town.

Is that correct? What do you suggest I can do in my vacations? It can be in the cities nearby. Thanks!

Keza, have you looked at distances and times from Athlone??? Check out this website http://routes.aaireland.ie/

Limerick isn't down the road and Cappamore is further out. Based on the above website, Cappamore is 84 miles and over 2 hours drive from Athlone.

Donegal is 112 miles and almost 3 hours drive from Athlone.

If you haven't booked accommodation, please have a rethink.

Lol you make me laugh 112 miles is nothing here in Australia. I go up to Perth which is a 3 hour drive and do shopping and then turn around and come home. Our accommodation is booked and I am sure those little distances will not be a worry. When we go and visit out daughter it is 9 hours straight albiet a lunch break in the middle!!!
