I recently stayed in the Shannonside House B&B and it was an absolute pleasure. A very cosy house, clean rooms and comfy beds. The owners were both friendly and the full Irish breakfast was smashing! I totally recommend this B&B to anyone looking for accommodation in Athlone!

Booking for a large group from all over Ireland is not easy. So having a rude , condescending host on the other side of the phone does not help. Happy to be now staying elsewhere. An upsetting start to the trip. Learn some manners please

Response from bowside, Owner at Shannonside House B&B
Responded 5 days ago
You booked two family rooms for 4 people and then you requested 6 to 8 persons would be staying. I rang you and explained that our family rooms cater for max 2 adults and 2 children in each room and you were booking for 8 adults.After our conversation you agreed to cancel as we had no more availability for that night. You initially made your booking through booking.com website, after approximately 3 weeks you rang after I spoke to booking.com explaining you were booking for 6 to 8 people. I explained again to you that our rooms were not suitable for your group. You took exception to this and to say I was rude is not a true reflection of the phone call. However, I am pleased you got sorted out elsewhere.

Stayed here on the way back to Dublin and must say it was the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect. The room was spotless, in fact the whole place was spotless. Breakfast was a full Irish on hot plates with perfect eggs and so on. Just don't stay anywhere

Just checked into this place and it is fantastic. Can’t describe anything other than Room 6 and Room 8 but it is clean, comfortable, inviting and has a classic charm to it. More reviews after breakfast a time or two.
