Carrick on Shannon-midweek, things to do!

Hi folks,

myself and missus thinking of going to either Carrick on Shannon or Athlone for a two night midweek break in a couple of weeks time.Can any advise if Carrick on Shannon is the type of place that could keep us amused for a couple of days. All we want is a bit of relaxation,bit of culture, few drinks and maybe a few shops/entertainment. thanks!

Carrick -on-Shannon is a lively place with a good shopping street, restaurants and wateriing holes. The Landmark hotel is my favorite situated across the road from the River Shannon. While using Carrick as a base to visit Sligo, Boyle or even Enniskillen you should find plenty to amuse you over a couple of days. If you fancy going underground then you have the Arigna mines near Boyle or the Marble Arch Caves near Blacklion, both are worth a visit.
