Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great experience. Arrived in need of a hot shower and got just that! Excellent area. Clean room and common areas. Anthony and his brother were both very nice.

  • Anthony was on holiday, so his brother was helping out with the BnB. He was very kind and came from his friends house to open up for us even though it was going on ten at night. Athlone is a beautiful town with lots to do, and we wish we had more than one night to stay there. The Bastion hosts will give you a brochure with most of the activities in the town, and give a rundown as to which are most worthwhile. The bedroom was clean and simple, and the breakfast was quite and simple. I would definitely recommend a stay at the Bastion.

  • Bastion B&B is a treat! Super clean and cosy. A must-stay if you're swinging through the geographical centre of Ireland. Anthony is a warm and informative host. Can't wait to go back!

    Felt like being in a home from home. Anthony & Vinnie helped was very friendly, helpful and I must say extremely patient although we had so many requests and changes.

  • Wonderful stay. Anthony was very helpful right from our arrival. Breakfasts were very good--yay cheese! Lots of narrow stairs where one must be careful. Our room and bath were very comfortable . Enjoyed chatting with both Anthony and Vinnie. Both had excellent suggestions for things to do and places to eat.
