Athlone General Information

As the bullseye centre of Ireland, Athlone holds a special place in Emerald Isle lore. The Lough Ree town of 15,000 people already has a pint grasp on one of the most enviable records in the country. Sean’s Bar, a diminutive pub on Main Street, has been in continuous operation since the year 900 and as a result, is a lock for the annual Guinness Book of World Records.

If the prospect of a stout and hearty meal at the oldest pub in Europe is not enough to convince you to pay Athlone a visit, happily, the River Shannon gem has a lot of other attractions in store. Sean’s Bar, after all, may put Athlone on the map for some but in truth, as the commercial capital of the Irish Midlands, the handsome town has a lot of other action in store. The River Shannon lures a fair number of people to Athlone’s marina and a spate of first-rate restaurants and hotels provide top-notch hospitality. Athlone Castle punctuates the middle of town with austere grandeur and several superb annual festivals attract culture buffs from all over Ireland. As the Irish economy perseveres at breakneck speed, Athlone is expected to grow by leaps and bounds and eventually, serve a possible catchment population of 270,000 people.
