"Atlone" Athlone by sangietair

Athlone Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 105 photos

We stopped in Atlone for a short break and a cup of coffee on our way to Galway. It wasn't raining so although cloudy with a few breaks of sunshine here and there, the day was perfect. We parked our car between Athlone Castle and the River Shannon and just did a walk about.

Athlone is a town in the centre of Ireland just on the banks of the River Shannon. Hence, it has been a strategic point for its involvement in many of the Irish Batles in the past.

An Ideal destination for a holiday break with a lot of history to offer and a good choice of accommodation, restaurants, pubs etc.
