Jim and Nancy are great hosts. We were welcomed warmly and fed well. We had a comfortable stay in their beautiful place. Athlone is an area that may not get as much tourist traffic as some places, but there are some amazing places in the area. It's also a short drive into the center of town, and there are lots of restaurants to choose from.

Jim & Nancy were superb hosts and Shelmalier House provided a perfect place for our last night of our trip prior to flying out of Dublin. Their home was spotless, our accommodations were comfy and roomy. Their breakfast was perhaps the best of our trip. Absolutely wonderful ! We had dinner at the Bacchus Restaurant with a view of the Shannon River. One of the best meals I have had anywhere. Highly recommended. Thanks again ! Werner "Rod" & Cher

war nicht ganz leicht zu finden. Die Leute waren sehr freundlich. Es gab das beste Frühstück, da ich in B&B´s bekam. Zimmer ruhig und sauber.

Excellent one night stay enroute to Dublin ferry, wished we could have stayed longer. Extremely relaxing, informal and comfortable with a fabulous breakfast. Good location within easy access to motorway and also into Athlone.
