              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              Why the Owner Chose Athlone:
              We love the area so much that we had to have a vacation home here. We bought a waterside plot of land and then had this house built to our own design. It is in a beautiful, quiet, secluded place, but it is walking distance to busy Athlone Town. We like to be in the center of Ireland - it is great for touring: 75 minutes from Dublin; 60 minutes from Galway; a little further to County Clare or Sligo. You can even go to Waterford or Cork on a day-trip. The M6 Highway is only one mile away.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              When we arrive at our vacation property, peace and tranquility are waiting for us. It is a very relaxing place. There is a lot of wildlife around: squirrels; birds; rabbits; swans; water-birds etc. The house is very spacious. The second lounge is a TV-free zone where you can read or talk or listen to music.
