Average Radisson Blu

Would not recommend Wed 14 Oct 2015
As it was a last minute weekend trip away, i booked the junior suite as it was the only room remaining. I'd hoped i'd be treated to something a bit better then the average room. Instead what i got was a fairly large room with just two extra arm chairs in the middle of the room. Apparently this identifies it as a 'suite'.The room view was of the car park and not even a River View. If you plan on watching TV bring your binoculars. Its located at the far end of the room and will be hard to watch from the bed. It also has no selection of sports or movie channels. The Bed itself is comfortable but the pillows are hard. Usually in every other Radisson i stayed in there is Feather pillows or at least a choice. The bathroom was of good size and the shower was great. The ironing set up was a joke and difficult to iron anything other then a tea towel! The mini bar wasn't stocked either, instead just an empty fridge. I'm sure we could of Rang Reception to get it stocked, but its simple amenities like this that is expected from a suite. All in All, don't bother spending the extra cash.

A gem even the locals don't know

Would recommend Fri 6 Sep 2013
In 2012, our family of five adults went to Ireland for vacation. We stopped in Athlone because it was halfway between Westport and Dublin, our two other stops. In Westport, which on weekends is populated by Dubliners, we repeatedly heard, "Why are you going to Athlone?" Here's why . . . The city is a find, and the hotel would be five stars in any other location. Our rooms faced the Shannon River and provided wonderful views. Well worth the upgrade. The location is across the river from a historic castle, cathedral, barracks, and most importantly, Sean's Pub the oldest bar in Ireland (honest, ask Guinness). Walked to them all in one afternoon, and returned to Sean's for the night's entertainment. Everything in the town -- restaurants, shops, tourist sites -- is within walking distance of this hotel. The staff, which was largely non-Irish, was superb and always available. The restaurant is great. At night, the deck next to the bar and on the river is even better. If you have a car, you can quickly travel to Clonmacnoise, the Kilbeggan distillery, or other places; and, if you don't, there are tours available. The Viking boat rides on the river across from the hotel was also a treat, and very informative. Athlone sits at the mid-point of the Shannon River, and of the Galway-Dublin train line. The train station is about two blocks away from the hotel -- it's about one hour to Galway and one-half hours to Dublin. You can see a lot of Ireland while staying in Athlone, and save a fortune compared to Dublin or Galway hotel rates.

Nightlife hint

Visit Sean's pub -- a short walk there, but a longer stagger back. Also, if drinking is not high on your list, Athlone has a beautiful park south of the main bridge along the river. The view back to the historic city is great. A supermarket (if you need one and you will) is located across from the park.

Staff very efficient and courteous. Rooms on the small side but otherwise clean and comfortable. Had breakfast each morning - sometimes good ,other times short of different breakfast items. Bar food good but a little on the costly side. Prices on the whole rather pricey. Would use the hotel again as it was convienent for the purpose of my stay.
