The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. We arrived in Athlone by train and Roland picked us up on his way home from work. The location is outside of the city so be sure to eat before going if you are without a car. The house is lovely; well made and clean spacious accommodations. They have 2 gathering areas and a small patio. A delicious breakfast was served in the morning.

Niamh and her husband couldn't have been more welcoming to us. The accommodation was spotless, spacious and top notch in terms of quality. The bathroom was huge! We had two excellent breakfasts with a range that would have put 5 star hotels to shame. Only 10 minute or so drive to Athlone so was pretty convenient for us too, and 3 mins away from the Hodson Bay hotel where we ate one night. Also, if you've young children, there's a great set of swings and go-karts which just made our kids' holidays! Thoroughly recommend and happy to stay again if we find ourselves back in Athlone.

I must say that Niamh is the perfect hostess. Her house is spotless and cosy, she makes a delicious breakfast and, if you are travelling with kids, they will be able to play, run or jump in a lovely garden. We had a really pleasant stay here. Thank you Niamh :)

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding down the road at Hodson Bay (3km). Excellent welcome, including tea and scones on our arrival. Nothing too much trouble for the hosts, they even offered to give us a lift to the wedding. Very clean room, room serviced daily: ie. beds made, bathroom cleaned and clean towels every day. Tea and coffee making facilities in room, supplies replenished daily. Excellent Irish breakfast. Guests have the use of 2 sitting areas and also a games room in the main house This B&B is suitable for couples, mixed groups or families, and a particularly good choice for families travelling with children, as Niamh and Ronan are very relaxed and friendly. The B&B is located about 5-10 minutes drive from Athlone, on the main N61 towards Roscommon.

Niamh User ProfileNiamh is a superhost.

I have been running our bed and breakfast for 6 years. I actually grew up in a B&B, as my parents owned one, so I've lots of experience. We have had guests come to stay from around the world. My husband works in building and we have young kids who are into Gaelic football & soccer. We enjoying skiing and general outdoor stuff, including walking and cycling. We are both from Athlone.
