I was meeting a very good girlfriend for an overnight stay and dinner, athlone being the halfway point for both of us. We found the shamrock lodge price to be very reasonable and wanted somewhere with 2 seperate bedrooms so we could get a good nights sleep. So we booked into their 2 bed apt. Upon driving in I was a bit nervous the place is very rundown, the reception had a funny smell and I had to pay upfront for the room, before even seeing it? I was glad not to stay in the hotel but the apt was clean and big so I would recommend those. Breakfast was very slow as we asked for eggs cooked too order - we waited at least 40 mins, they were fine. Overall the stay was ok but it just has a bit of a "low-rent" feel about the place and I didn't feel very safe there.
