A gem even the locals don't know

In 2012, our family of five adults went to Ireland for vacation. We stopped in Athlone because it was halfway between Westport and Dublin, our two other stops. In Westport, which on weekends is populated by Dubliners, we repeatedly heard, "Why are you going to Athlone?" Here's why . . . The city is a find, and the hotel would be five stars in any other location. Our rooms faced the Shannon River and provided wonderful views. Well worth the upgrade. The location is across the river from a historic castle, cathedral, barracks, and most importantly, Sean's Pub the oldest bar in Ireland (honest, ask Guinness). Walked to them all in one afternoon, and returned to Sean's for the night's entertainment. Everything in the town -- restaurants, shops, tourist sites -- is within walking distance of this hotel. The staff, which was largely non-Irish, was superb and always available. The restaurant is great. At night, the deck next to the bar and on the river is even better. If you have a car, you can quickly travel to Clonmacnoise, the Kilbeggan distillery, or other places; and, if you don't, there are tours available. The Viking boat rides on the river across from the hotel was also a treat, and very informative. Athlone sits at the mid-point of the Shannon River, and of the Galway-Dublin train line. The train station is about two blocks away from the hotel -- it's about one hour to Galway and one-half hours to Dublin. You can see a lot of Ireland while staying in Athlone, and save a fortune compared to Dublin or Galway hotel rates.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Visit Sean's pub -- a short walk there, but a longer stagger back. Also, if drinking is not high on your list, Athlone has a beautiful park south of the main bridge along the river. The view back to the historic city is great. A supermarket (if you need one and you will) is located across from the park.

Radisson Blu and Athlone

This hotel is situated in the perfect location in Athlone for visiting the castle boat tours and exploring the old historical quarters of the town. The hotel is modern comfortable with a lovely pool and the pool manager is one of the nicest blokes in Ireland . The only fault with the rooms is that the tv is dated. Yes they work but smalland dated. The beds were so comfortable even my daughter commented onthemRom was spotless and staff lovely. Thecar park is a nightmare to get out of you learn very quick to validate the ticket every time you want to leave the hotel and evenat that you might have to return twice. Food v good and reasonable. Breakfast tasty and plenty of choice. Yes I would highly recommend the hotel in every way and will stay there next time well return to Athlone.

Staff very efficient and courteous. Rooms on the small side but otherwise clean and comfortable. Had breakfast each morning - sometimes good ,other times short of different breakfast items. Bar food good but a little on the costly side. Prices on the whole rather pricey. Would use the hotel again as it was convienent for the purpose of my stay.

comfortable bed

My experience was pretty average. I was allocated a room set up for people with disabilities, not in itself a problem. However the bathroom flooded, which was a mess and would have been very distressing if I had been a disabled person. Food and service left a lot to be desired, and the room decor was weird.

hidden gem in mid-Ireland

Our family of 5 adults found Athlone and the Radisson Blu Hotel, true highpoints of our stay. It's a first class, modern hotel, with the reasonable rates, in a FANTASTIC location -- on the Shannon river; across from the historic castle, barracks,bridge, and Sean's pub; easy drives to Clonmacnoise, Tullamore, and other historic sites. Upgrade rooms for river view. The train station is 2 blocks away. Staff was especially helpful. Athlone is a walkable, compact gem of a town. Like all of Ireland, residents are friendly and helpful.

Sean's pub. Oldest pub in Ireland, and best in Athlone. Arrive late, around 10 p.m. to meet locals. From hotel, walk across bridge, around castle, and about 50 meters you're there.
