We stopped in Athlone almost by accident, and decided to tour the castle since we had time. We were surprised to see that the visitor experience had just opened in late February of this year (2013). We entered and thoroughly enjoyed the interactive experience! The designers did a great job of engaging the visitors with interactive displays and audio-visual performances. We enjoyed the view from the castle walls and learned a surprising amount about the history of Ireland there!
