Hi rumgurl, hope all is well with you. Yes there are trains from Heuston station Dublin to Athlone daily. We are only a five minute walk from the train station in Athlone. If you were planning to visit us for a night there are some great hotels in town to choose from too such as the Sheraton, Radisson Blu , Prince of Wales or Shamrock Lodge. See you soon !

Sean's doesn't serve food but there's several restaurants in that corner of town so you won't need to go far.
