From easy bike rides, to adrenaline fuelled zipwiring through treetops and from gallery tours to whiskey tasting, when you meet here, you’re at the heart of it all.
Athlone and the surrounding region isn’t just easy to get to, it’s easy to get around when you’re here too. Add to that the comfort that comes with stylish hotels, international hotel brands and event venues, all with excellent connectivity… and you’re all set for a really successful event.
