A very comfortable, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean B&B, with really good breakfasts. It’s a very good location to stay for the lovely town of Athlone; which is only a few minutes drive down the N61.

We stayed in at Alverna House in January after finding it on TripAdvisor. Now we know why it's rated No.1. It's immaculate in every way. The bedrooms and bathrooms are super clean, the breakfast perfect and the service second to none. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation. Price wise, it's excellent value for money!!!

Arrived early but the very nice owner allowed us to use our room straight away to change, and what a fabulous room it was (no 2). Very well-appointed room with what turned out to be an... More

Two of us stayed in Alverna House B&B on 26th September for one night and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the B&B. We were welcomed into the beautiful House by Niamh on arrival, and shown to our room. The entire house was spotlessly clean, modernly decorated and our room looked wonderful. I'm not sure what I...

Niamh and Ronan are great hosts. They are both friendly. Niamh makes a homemade Irish breakfast every morning which we truly enjoyed. There are other foods available and a small buffet of breads, cereal, and yogurt are waiting for you when you first enter the breakfast room. Our bedroom was spacious and comfortable.
