My 2 boys and I spent a night at the Bastion in the long room. The beds were futons and although they were comfortable they are very low to the ground. Overall though we had pleasant stay. Wifi was good.

Hi I'm Anthony. I run The Bastion with my brother Vinny. Our street is named after the Royal Bastion which once occupied the street where we are.

Our house is a bit of a labyrinth inside. There's lots of history here. The world famous Irish tenor John Count McCormack often visited in the early 1900s. More recently we had Michael Jackson downstairs at The Bastion Gallery!

Our style is laid back and relaxed. We love good food and the left bank area is a gourmet district with lots of great restaurants and pubs. You definitely won't go hungry here. Ireland's Oldest Bar is just down the hill. There is music most evenings. Close by, McGuire's Bar boasts over 100 craft beers.

The beautiful river Shannon is just at the end of the street. The imposing and enormous stone castle built by King John in 1210 majestically guards the river crossing.

In 1691 the area was besieged by the armies of King William of Orange in a battle with King James for the English throne. Thirty thousand cannon balls were fired across the river in the barrage that ensued. We have one of them!

The nearby Luan Gallery hosts great exhibitions throughout the year.
