The Bastion

2 Bastion St., Athlone, Co. Westmeath, Ireland

Fodor’s Expert Review

An inviting glow hits you as you step into the long, narrow corridor of this unconventional B&B, all nooks and little staircases, an easygoing place to chill for a few days. Run by two brothers, Anthony and Vinny McCay, the Bastion is simply and tastefully furnished with crisp white linens and comfy beds. The studio room is €10 extra and is worth it for some additional space. 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. Breakfast is not served, but the Bastion Kitchen directly across the road opens at 8:30 am.
