There are so many activities and things to do in Athlone available in and around Wineport to keep all ages entertained. The quiet, leafy location is ideal for a morning walk or cycle - the lake at your front door of course, means that boating and fishing are foremost on the activity list.
The historical town of Athlone is a short drive away - a large, vibrant and colourful town full of winding quirky shops, a cinema and a host of beautiful little cafes and boutiques.
Here are some ideas of Athlone things to do for you...
Athlone has some really good bookshops. Na Linte in the old town quarter for unusual titles & first editions, Eason’s for up to the minute bestsellers, & Athlone Library at Athlone Civic Offices, Church Street, run by a great historian, Gearóid O’Brien, is a real treat.
Colm Quinn BMW & MINI showrooms, Michael Moore’s ritzy showrooms for Audi, VW & Mercedes. The town also boasts dealerships for Renault, Nissan, Opel & Toyota.
Glasson Village boasts a great selection of places to eat from pub grub at Grogans and The Fatted Calf at The Village Inn to Glasson Village Restaurant. Walesch’s / Killenure Chalets is something very casual & different, while in town The Left Bank Bistro or The Olive Grove are buzzy and fun. Kin Khao Thai is an award winning and authentic ethnic restaurant situated in the old town quarter.
Have a Pub Crawl
Grogans & The Village Inn in Glasson are a good place to start. Murrays in Maleragh & The Three Jolly Pigeons are both unique country pubs. In town, Seans Bar leads the field, ahead of The Castle Inn, The Palace Bar, Gertie Brownes, The Snug & The Shack . Don’t forget The Genoa Café on the bridge for the best fish’n’chips on the way home.
Glasson Golf Club for the setting, the terrace in the Radisson Blu, The Left Bank Bistro and the riverside terrace at The Olive Grove.
