Gateway to the West
The largest town on the River Shannon has earned the moniker of Gateway to the West for its strategic location; visitors are attracted to Athlone for its vibrant streets. While the eastern bank of the town is mostly commercial, the western bank offers sightseeing and can serve as a base for day trips and river cruises. Along the historical western bank, you'll find old bookbinders, boutiques, houses, restaurants, and traditional pubs--including the oldest in Europe. Be sure to visit the town's attractions, including the river promenade, abbey remains, a gallery, and a castle. Take a peek at our online itinerary creator: Athlone and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
