We enjoyed our stay in Athlone. Jim was a great host! The room was clean and had everything we needed. The city centre is little bit far to walk but booking taxi is not too expensive. We would highly recommend staying here.

Jim is a fun and knowledgeable host. His fresh rhubarb compote was amazing, along with the rest of breakfast. The collection of books, pottery, china and other antiques Jim and Nancy share with guests is beautiful.

Oh we had such a lovely stay with Jim and will be going back to stay next time we are in Ireland!! He was an amazing host all the way around. He gave us a ride down town along with a tour of town. The room had everything we needed and was very clean. And the breakfast was amazing…..fresh baked goods from the “local” bakery🙂. Thank you for the great fun and wonderful stay!!
