I had the pleasure of staying here 5 days a week for about 4 months. Tom the owner was very professional and sincerely a very nice guy which is very important to me 'cause I don't like fake "part of the job" kind of nice. It was a very unique experience, felt very homely but at the same time was a good as any top hotels I've stayed in. Rooms were really nice with comfy bed and very spacious; even the smallest room was a great size! Lovely cottage styling which had a really nice contemporary twist. Lovely cozy bar out the front where I had the pleasure of meeting some of the locals and took part in a sing song on my last night 'till the early hours of the morning. Always a great atmosphere in the bar and great craic! Pool table out the back too which is great. Food was top class and varied and really tasty. The guesthouse is in a great location, jus outside the the town in one of the best parts in Athlone and also very close to a beautiful lake. I would highly recommend this guesthouse to anyone, especially anyone who was looking for a real Irish welcome! Hope to stay again sometime soon. Thanks a million Tom!
