We stayed one night at the mill bar on our way to the west, on arrival we were given the choice of two rooms. Both were very similar it was like stepping back in time to the 1970s. All the decor from the bed spreads to the carpets and bed room furniture screamed for updating. I must point out that... More

Such a lovely couple that run it, friendly accommodating . Comfy rooms. Delightful breakfast . They went out of their way to help us. They not only gave us some contacts but phoned them for us . Nothing is to much trouble, it will be like staying with friends next year. Which by the way we have already booked up.

My stopover at The Mill was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from check-in to check-out. My room was large, welcoming, warm and extremely comfortable. I wanted for nothing room wise. Likewise the breakfast room... More

nice but basic rooms with very nice and helpful staff. Missed our breakfast in the morning but were very kindly offered to be made breakfast even though the kitchen was already closed. Located a good distance from Athlone town but it suited our needs. Food in pub was also very good.

Just back from weekend break in athlone only negative was the weather. The Mill bar is a lovely b+b outside Athlone very welcoming and friendly. Our rooms on ground floor as requested were basic but comfy could do with some hooks for hanging stuff in bathroom. Breakfast on both mornings was excellent. We had food in the lounge and that...

This a traditional type B&B run by the lovely Theresa who made you feel very welcome. The room I had was basic but very comfortable, Wi-Fi is free but a little bit up and down but this is normal even in semi-rural Ireland! The adjoining pub is traditional Irish at its best and although quiet on the night I stayed... More

“We were in a front room and it was quiet but at a very quiet time (July, but wet weather) - never heard cars in car park or anyone in bar. Nevertheless I think a rear room might be better in season, away from car park and the bar itself.”
