Fodor's Review

An inviting glow hits you as you step into the long narrow corridor of this unconventional B&B, all nooks and little staircases, and with a high fun quotient. Run by two brothers, Anthony and Vinny McCay, the Bastion occupies a former drapery shop. Simply and tastefully furnished with crisp white linens and comfy beds, this is an easygoing place to chill for a few days. You're spoiled for dining options, surrounded by Italian, Indian, Thai, Lebanese, and modern Irish

restaurants as well as several pubs within a few minutes' walk on Athlone's left bank.
