General Information about Athlone
Athlone is situated at the geographical centre of Ireland, and this makes it an excellent launching point for excursions to virtually any corner of the island. Couple this with the city’s selection of hotels (courtesy of a thriving exhibition and trade show industry), and you’ve got the formula for a comfortable and convenient base of operations.
But it’s not all business, shopping and accommodation in Athlone. This region is particularly rich in lakes and rivers, making Athlone a popular retreat for anglers. Fishing season peaks in April, when the town hosts its annual angling festival. This event centres Lough Ree to the north of town.
There are several historic attractions around Athlone, as well. The town showpiece is Athlone Castle, which was built on the west bank of the River Shannon back in the 1200s. A comprehensive remodelling initiative completed in 2012 has left it looking better than ever. For those with a rental car in Athlone, the prehistoric sites at Dún na Sí Heritage Centre (in the nearby town of Moate) are also accessible.
