About this listing

Originally built as The Railway Hotel and located right in the centre of the heritage town of Athy County Kildare this elegant building continues to welcome guests from near and far.

The space

Rooms are available throughout the year to allow you to enjoy the many events that take place in Athy and the surrounding areas of South Kildare, Laois, Carlow, Wicklow and Kilkenny.

Ensuite rooms to let are available for overnight stays or for short breaks, weekends and holidays in the South East. Athy is strategically located with quick access to the motorway network. The railway station in Athy has regular train services to Waterford and Dublin, with the Luas stop just outside Heuston Station.

The front bar with its welcoming fire provides a comfortable haven for a few drinks in the evening. The more reclusive may prefer the snug, and there is a beer garden and smoking area in the private gardens to the rear.

All the accommodation is located well away from the bars up the elegant 18th century staircase, which passes the Victorian breakfast room. The building has central heating throughout.

Margaret was a great host. She allowed us for last minute changes, late check in, very flexible and very much appreciated. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. There was a great feeling of coziness. High recommendation.

The perfect stay if you want to be in the centre of Athy. Short walk to everywhere. Breakfast can be had a meters down the street.

Margaret is an organised, welcoming and caring host who made us feel at home instantly. We had nothing left to ask for room wise, and we got suggestions on where to eat and explanations on how to get around. Athy in general was very cosy and friendly. We would recommend this place to anyone and we'll probably come back next year!

We did TriAthy and found Margaret to be the perfect host. Early breakfast on morning of the race set us up for the day. Short walk to transition. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Would stay again.
