With its stylish interior and relaxed atmosphere, The Bastion is a traveller’s respite. Wooden floorboards, crisp white linen and freshly ground coffee await you. The comfortable guest lounge is a place to relax and unwind after a day touring and before sampling the many excellent restaurants the area boasts. We are not serving breakfast in the house right now but a full breakfast menu is available right next door at the excellent Bastion Kitchen. We know you'll enjoy it!
"The café is directly across from the Bastion B&B and offers one of the best breakfasts in the Midlands: we would walk all the way to Athlone just to have that Castlemine Farm sausage bap, which is pretty much the tastiest bite in town, closely followed by superb scrambled eggs."
John and Sally McKennas' Guides
Brothers Vinny & Anthony have run this Athlone B&B for over a decade.
The Midlands of Ireland is an area rich in natural beauty. It is a place of tranquil lakes and myriad waterways, of historical treasures and unspoilt landscapes. This is a region where ancient past meets modern culture.
Athlone is known as the capital of the Irish Midlands and at its heart, in the shadow of the massive 12th Century King John’s Castle, is the historical and culinary Left Bank area. Among the narrow streets and brightly painted facades lies Bastion Street, on the corner of which you'll find The Bastion B&B.
