This hotel is very comfortable and has many very good facilities. The location is great too with many nice attractions and good places to eat nearby. Moreover, the staff were very friendly and they knew the local area very well too - I would certainly recommend staying here.
We stopped in November to visit the area. Unfortunately we hit some very wet weather. but that's how it goes. Athlone Castle is a great place to visit. Can't say much else because of the rain although what we did see from the car window looked like a great place to walk through. Town center is within walking distance of the hotel. Overall, it looks like a nice place to stay for 2 days where you want a leisurely break. Maybe next time....
Traveling with a 2 year old across Ireland requires a more spacious room with at least a double and a twin bed, access to small things like milk, and activities (pool). This hotel was very accommodating and its location next to a beach was fun for rock tossing and access to town. I'm also very susceptible to waking from noise and the staff went out of their way to find the perfect room for the 3 of us. I'd book there again in a minute!!
"Great hotel to relax and take in the countryside"
Glasson Hotel is a scenic and beautiful area surrounded by a golf course and Lough (lake). It is a family owned and operated hotel. We met Mom, Dad and daughter, who actually helped carry my bag. The staff is warm and friendly and that comes from the owners.
The general manager stopped by to chat one day at lunch and upon hearing of where we were headed pulled out his cell and called ahead to have an acquaintance meet up with us. It turned out to be the highlight of our entire Irish holiday.
Glasson & Athlone are in the center of Ireland and are less 'touristy' than Dublin, Galway or Cork so if you are interested in seeing part of the Irish countryside and meet with the locals we highly recommend staying here. We were thrilled with our stay and sorry to leave.
