    Oh my! If you want to immerse yourself in Irish countryside culture this little museum is a MUST SEE! Charlie Finneran is simply priceless and his collection is as well. Totally worth the admission (€8)

    We did Celtic Temple, really well made escape room with lots of excellent props. Puzzles are satisfyingly difficult, but not too hard for the level of the room. Had a great time, the owner seems really passionate about the business and escape rooms in general, very friendly and helpful. Will be back again soon.

    Brilliant that you can just turn up with no need to book. A very relaxed experience with lots of information along the way.

    We had Sean's Bar on our bucket list for Ireland! What a treat! We got there not too long after they opened. We struck up a conversation with the gal at the bar and she gave us. the complete lowdown on the history of the bar. Fascinating!

    I'd say Sean's has done a great job at melding the old with the new!

    A group of 18 of us reserved an area in The Snug for the afternoon of a hen party this weekend. We cannot thank the team enough for how well they looked after us! Right through from our initial enquiry to the day itself they went above and beyond at every turn, had the craic with us and it never for a second felt like anything was an inconvenience for them (which is no easy feat with a group of nordies requesting every cocktail under the sun!). The food options, provided by Pavarottis restaurant next door, were fantastic too and helped keep us going before we headed out for dinner in the evening. I couldn't recommend The Snug enough for any groups heading to Athlone, or even just people looking to head in for a few pints and a match. Thank you so much guys, we will 100% be back next time we're in Athlone!

    Enjoyed this walking tour of Athlone's sights with local guide VIncent. He shared an interesting history of the town and castle, as well as entertaining stories of well known characters and connections with wider world events. Definitely to be recommended for all ages.

    Here for a night out with a good pal. Was initially out for a walk but found this gem of a public house. Could hear the music and good atmosphere before I even opened the door. Started off with a lovely pint of Guinness (The best in Athlone followed by the Bailey) followed with a couple hot whiskeys. Was a great experience made even better with the service from Rob , Kellie , Shauna , James , Paddy Guinness , Neil , Seamus and Paulie T on the door. Unfortunately didn’t get to meet the fabulous Ogara brothers who iv heard so much about. Will definitely be back!!

    Had an amazing massage - felt both energised and relaxed afterwards. This met all the covid guidelines but still provided the Spa experience.

    This Spa is ridiculously PERFECT! Meticulously clean and the massage was truly amazing (Thai hot stone). I love getting a massage monthly and always when I travel … this was the best I can ever remember.

    This is one of the most beautiful settings in ireland. Absolutely magnificent by the lakeshore, with superb food, relaxed and utterly professional staff. All courses were great and the sommelier gave good advice. Really couldn’t ask for any more.

    I find myself in a very lucky position, I met John about 2 years ago and I have received numerous massages from his magical hands. He is an extremely talented and experienced master masseur, that I am now blessed to call my friend. So if your in the Athlone area treat yourself to a magical few hours of pure bliss
