Athlone Castle

Experience a magnificent immersive journey through history at Athlone Castle Visitor Centre.  Climb the steps to the castle keep and enjoy the views across the majestic River Shannon or climb higher still to the castle battlements and look across the rooftops of the entire town.

Take a step back in history through playful interactive exhibits, touch screen animations and an immersive 360 degree cinematic experience that brings the Great Siege of Athlone to life.

Swords, cannon balls and stunning sculptures give these ancient stories depth.  Vibrant displays and historic artefacts will lead you along a 3D timeline that illustrates Athlone’s last 200 years.

Enjoy the wonderful voice of John Count McCormack in a display dedicated to the memory of the world-famous Athlone tenor.  Join one of the informative guided tours for a journey through Irish history that you won’t forget. Rain or shine, this is a castle with a story.
