We arrived a bit frazzled after getting to within 500 metres, then turning around because we thought we had gone too far and missed it. Our first stop in Ireland and our Sat Nav took us to the right road but since there is no street number it couldn't help us find the actual property. Keep going, Riverview is at... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverview House. Carmel was very welcoming, the room and bathroom were especially large, very tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean. Carmel gave us excellent suggestions for dinner in Athlone, which was a short drive away and great fun. Breakfast was one of the best on our trip - we appreciated the healthy cereal, fruit... More

I booked this B&B online several weeks before traveling to Ireland, needing a place midway between Clifden in Connemara and Dublin for one night. I had never spent time in Athlone, and this looked convenient and easy to access off the M6 motorway. I was pleasantly surprised to receive an e-mail from owner Carmel Corbett two days prior to my...

What a nice place with a charming hostess ! Athlone can get a bit manic with hen/stag parties spilling around the centre - especially at weekends - so we found the Riverview was the perfect antidote to that. Situated a couple of miles / five minutes drive out of the centre on the old Galway Road R446- not too far... More

Had a two day Stay on May 19th and 20th. Rooms are very well appointed. Shower a little small however everything was sparkling clean. We arrived early and Carmel was more than helpful! About a 10 minute drive to town and located just off the main Hwy into Dublin. A great stop off and about 1 1/2 from Dublin airport.... More

Riverview House is just out of Athlone. We had a triple room. It was clean, spacious and beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Hostess provided information on local places to eat and stay. For our 1st bed and breakfast stop, we were very pleased with our choice.

We had a nice stay at this B&B. It was close to the center of the town. The hosts were very welcoming. She recommended an Italian restaurant for dinner and suggested that we pick up a bottle of wine because it was a byob restaurant. We had a wonderful dinner and a good nights rest.

We were booked here because the B&B's in town were full because of a Drama event. Best thing that could had of happened us. It is just out of town, so we are away from the craziness of the town but near enough to enjoy town. Athlone in the center of Ireland and 1.5 hours drive / train from Dublin... More

1st class accommodation. Great location, only a few minutes drive into Athlone centre. Booked a twin room for myself and my father and we were both thoroughly delighted. Room was lovely and very well proportioned and decorated to a very high standard. Brilliant hospitality from owner. Only had one night but would be more than happy to stay there again.... More
