prince of wales athlone castle

Athlone Castle is situated on Castle Street, in Athlone, only 5 minutes’ walk from Prince of Wales Hotel.

First built in the 12th century as a timber fort, Athlone Castle evolved into a bold, defensive building. Its most significant architectural features, such as the keep, have now been harnessed to act as a dramatic backdrop to its diverse and fascinating story.

Experience and discover an enchanted journey through the historic Athlone Castle on the banks of the River Shannon.
