“Hotel Quality”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Beautiful modern house. The rooms are 4*++ hotel quality.
I am guessing the house was purpose build for a high quality B&B
The food and choice is of excellent quality.
The owner is as warm and friendly as her home.

we arrived quite late but still received a very warm welcome from niamh and ronan, if you are looking for a place to stay you cannot fault this B&B, ample parking spaces, lounge to chill in, another lounge, with a pool table, absolutely excellent, and the full Irish breakfast and the choice of breads, cereals, fruit and much much more is as good as you would get in any top class hotel. the bedroom we stayed in was to die for, with beautiful on suit bathroom,the rooms were spacious clean and comfortable and a very comfortable bed!! tea coffee facilities in the room and biscuits. niamh and her husband were more than helpful giving us adivce on routes shops and also giving us a lift into town. niamh even offered to iron any garments for the wedding bless!
niamh ronan, THANK YOU very much for making our stay such a great one, we look forward to seeing you again soon, best wishes to you both xx

A lot of thought has gone into the planning and detail of this lovely B&B. The rooms were clean, bright, spacious and comfortable.The breakfast was substantial especially as we don't eat traditional breakfasts - we had a choice of cereals, breads, muffins / cake, yogurt ,fruit, fruit juices. The owners obviously work hard and it shows - it was a delightful home, thanks.

I booked this B&B for my Dad who was up in Athlone working (27th October). He received a very warm welcome from the proprietor. She went above and beyond to ensure he had an enjoyable stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The full Irish breakfast was excellent too. Will definitely be returning!

I'm not the sort of person to write reviews, but we have just spent three nights in Alverna house and it was so good I felt compelled to let everyone know just what a beautiful place it is...Niamh was a fantastic host, friendly, more than happy to take time to talk and answer questions. The rooms are en-suit, large, warm, clean and very comfortable with the feel of a hotel. Having been out all three nights in Athlone we all needed just a wee bit longer in bed than normal. (Athlone pubs are good as well). Niamh was very accommodating and allowed us to have our breakfast at a time that to be honest was slightly embarrassing...and what a breakfast...everything tasty fresh and lots of it, fruit, bread, juice, muffins, cereal and cooked breakfasts as you want. one of our party was coeliac and again Niamh was knowledgeable understanding and accommodating. If you do find you self needing a place to stay whilst visiting Athlone you wont do much better than this. The reviews already on this site I can only add to. It is a beautiful house very family friendly. I have stayed in vastly more expensive hotels that aren't a patch on Alverna House. Highly Recommended.

It is only on a rare occasion that you can drive home from a stay away, thinking to yourself...........That was perfect! One such experience has lead me to write this review. Having worked in a five star hotel for 5years....I can honestly say that Alverna house is as good as it gets. In contrast to faceless, busy hotels with thoughless decor and conveyerbelt-like service, Niamh, the propietor of this spotless, welcoming and stylish B & B, curbs this recent trend! Having gotten the basics right, Niamh has the perfect personality and attention to detail!

Apart from greeting us most welcomingly (at a late hour), Niamh went the extra mile to ensure we had the best experience possible. From great reccomendations for Athlone town, to arranging us transport. The room was spotlessly clean with very classy decor (no expenses saved!!)

The Great value for money, Ease of Parking, Yummy bikies and tea in the room, Crisp towels, Gigantic Shower, Comfy Beds and the Filling, tasty breaky left us in want of nothing but more time to enjoy the Pool room!! Well done to Niamh:)
