Liz and Richard have a wonderful house, in a spectacular and historic location, and are so welcoming. They very graciously accommodated our Miniature Schnauzer with their dog Yoda, and provided a lovely afternoon tea for us and our friends (who weren't staying there).
They're very helpful with advice and local knowledge, and their recommended walk from the house around neighbouring Rindoon Castle was lovely, especially as the wildflowers were in full bloom.
The rooms are extremely comfortable. Two have great views over Lough Ree (we had one of them), and the other is huge with a fabulous bathroom. Breakfast was brilliant - my wife is still talking about it, and she's something of a breakfast connoisseur.
I can't recommend St Johns House strongly enough. This is THE place to stay if you're near Athlone or Roscommon.
