Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone

Northgate St., Athlone, Co. Westmeath, Ireland

In a prime location on the banks of the Shannon, this property has a distinctive water theme; not surprising, as more than half the units have superb views of the meandering river with a lovely look at the Sts. Peter and Paul across the way. Guest rooms are clean, comfortable, and modern, decorated in two styles: urban or ocean. Swans preen around the bridge and cruisers are berthed beside the hotel. The Elements Bistro serves lunch and dinner, and you can snack on lighter fare at the Quayside Bar. Everything you need to see and do in Athlone is a short walk away. Between May and September, barbecues light up summer nights on the terrace. Ask about their special "Romance on the River" package.
