The Alverna House was a comfortable place to spend a night on our trip around Ireland. The breakfast was great and the host was super nice. I will book this B&B when returning to Athlone. It was very clean and comfortable!

Myself and 6 of my friends stayed here for a girlie weekend. Some of us didn't arrive until after 10pm but were still welcomed with a smile.

A very comfortable, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean B&B, with really good breakfasts. It’s a very good location to stay for the lovely town of Athlone; which is only a few minutes drive down the N61.

We stayed in at Alverna House in January after finding it on TripAdvisor. Now we know why it's rated No.1. It's immaculate in every way. The bedrooms and bathrooms are super clean, the breakfast perfect and the service second to none. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation. Price wise, it's excellent value for money!!!
