... Chin up!!Four layers on so if add a small sweater should be fine. Just the dampness . Meal tasted good anyway. Had read that in trying out of the way shops or restaurants may come upon a wonderful shop with delicious food. Here, the bakery has some of the best brownies have ever eaten.
The M1 is a four lane highway from Belfast to Dublin, much easier to navigate than the northern version since a lot less roundabouts ...
... year for charity, and they gave us a recommendation of a pub to go to, that some of those Dublin based musicians often drink at, called Whelans, so we decided to go for a walk up there. It wasn't too close, but we walked about 15 minutes up there anyway, to find it was closed! So we went to a place across the road called Against The Grain, which was a very cool place, and had a pretty big selection of GOOD beers and micro-brews. ...
... the traditional Irish music we were seeking, the likes of Johnny Cash, Soggy Bottom Boys, Dolly Parton and Buck Owens resounded throughout the quaint bar. Sean's Pub was interesting. While having a pint in the oldest bar in Ireland, a couple local lads couldn't stop staring at us...I suppose we stick out (or perhaps ...
Today we arrived in Ireland!! WOO HOO!!!
We hopped on a bus from our hotel in Liverpool at about 10:00 this morning and got to the John Lennon airport by 10:30. On the way to the airport my mom bought some grapes for a snack and Zoe took a bite and LOST A TOOTH!!! Her first REAL lost tooth was in Liverpool - how cool!!! And the tooth fairy is coming to Ireland tonight!! What a lucky girl!!
... was executed. The next part of the tour was through the oldest part of the building where the original cells were. Tiny little cells, open windows to the freezing air (so just bars no glass) and 1 candle had to last you 2 weeks. Again the intention was 1 person per cell but often this wasn't the case and the prison guards were always selling rooms and food etc to the more privileged inmates. During the potato famine food was so scarce that people got to a point where ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Athlone Springs Hotel
We decided to give it another go....room ok, pool nice and quiet. Ate in Athlone because its nicer and the hotel restaurant was dead, but then.....it was time for breakfast!
Overall a beautiful hotel about 3 miles outside Athlone town. We got very good value for our package. However our enjoyment was spoiled by some annoying and unnecessary service ' blips'
Having viewed the Athlone Springs Hotel website both myself and my partner decided to book 2 nights away for some R&R before christmas. The website is quite good but that is the only thing that this hotel has going for it. Our package was supposed to include a dinner, and when we tried to book we where told the restaurant was fully booked and considering the hotel is in the middle of no where we could not make any alternative arrangements and nor was the hotel forthcoming in offering any or atleast providing a discount. I have stayed in many kinds of hotels throughout the world and have never experianced such bad customer service. I even had better customer service in hostels i stayed in in my student days. If you are looking for a good quaility hotel with good customer service this is not the place to go. Also from speaking to our fellow guests, their experiance of the restaurant was quite bad, food described as cold and half cooked where just some of the comments that were said to me.
One night to destress
Room was 1st class comfortable and well above average. Staff were helpful but somewhat remote/reserved. It was extremely late when i booked in after a business meeting and i arrived about 10.30pm and this may account to the quiet clinical and non atmospheric feel to the hotel............breakfast was first class and i took option to have this by room service as i had an early flight to catch from dublin. What i saw of hotel impressed me highly but this hotel needs some character and atmosphere injected into it. Was more like a clinic than a hotel in honesty. I would use it again but only as a third or fourth choice as the other hotels i've used in Athlone were far more appealling. The atmosphere and feel of hotel will no doubt improve over time as this is a really new hotel
Have just returned from a mini break around Ireland, had pre-booked The Athlone Springs for three nights as it seemed appealing and relaxing. Welcome on arrival was friendly and efficient.
got a really nice deal with dinner, room and a massage for both of us, really good value, I had heard hotel had a few issues but we were very happy with our stay, the food was lovely, the restaurant very purple, and the rooms a good size, and pink lit corridors, different for sure!!! The massage was excellent, the girl knew her stuff and the pool very big, and not crowded at all.. overall, we had a great time, will be back to Athlone again and will stay at the Springs
Nice hotel, shame about the food!
Lovely new hotel, bit of an industrial setting, no nice views. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was not to the standard you would expect. Only had breakfast at the hotel, which would have been good had it not been cold, and taken a long time to come. Thought it was just teething problems, but reading other reviews it appears to be an ongoing problem.
Beautiful New Hotel
Have recently returned from an overnight stay in this newly built hotel. Staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient. Room was spacious, beautiful decor, very comfortable bed, nice LCD tv, they have thought of everything...even down to the little details. The lighting in the hallways give a relaxed, chilled out atmosphere. The leisure facilities were excellent - the nicest pool I have used, lovely big jacuzzi. The treatment rooms weren't operating yet but are due to be ready shortly. I can't fault this hotel in any way. Can't wait to go back again!
Booked my wedding!!

A new fab boutique hotel
Stayed here for 3 nights, the hotel is fabulous, the decor second to none, really funky lights. Our room was great, good size, king bed, all the trimmings.
Had dinner in the Cedar restaurant every night, good service and excellent food. A good team of people working there, from the desk to the leisure centre. The leisure club Zen is really big, great facilities. The pool is huge.
