Discover the history of Athlone

Athlone Town itself is a place chock full of picturesque scenes with plenty of things to see and do for visitors in the area. The history of the town stretches back to the 12th century when a bridge was built to cross the River Shannon, this location became of upmost strategic importance as the river was impassable for miles in all directions, thus being known as “the gateway to the West”. To protect the strategic bridge a fort was built which evolved through the years into the majestic Athlone Castle which is open to visitors today. South of Athlone you’ll find even more history in Clonmacnoise, here stands the ruins of a monastery that dates back to 546 AD.
