Prós: Hotel had a great location, not just in athlone, but easy to and from Dublin airport as well. Best shower I've ever used in any country including luxury hotels in America. Three shower heads coming from different angles and strong water pressure. Nice and friendly staff. Pub had good food, some of the best soup I've tasted all over Ireland. Very flexible with early check-in once a room was clean and available. I don't have a bad word about this place. We would stay again for definite!
Prós: The price was OK. Winter price it was.
Contras: Bed was old and overdue for the dumpster. Food service was not so good either - the restaurant manager appeared to be doing most of the staffs work, thankfully someone was on top of it though. The elevator had some nasty sticky stuff on the walls on the day of check-in, and still there when we left.

Prós: On top of an authentic Irish Pub, has five guestrooms, two rooms on 2nd floor three on the 3rd. We spent new years eve of 2015 here, there was no noise from the Pub at all. Actually not much noise even from the street below. Location is directly across the Guarda (Police) station. There are other restaurants nearby, but we only ate at the Pub below. Which is reasonably priced. The staff was nice and friendly. Our room had 3 single beds, the room was clean. Overall a nice experience.
Contras: It wasn't a negative for us but the lack of elevator might be an issue for some. Hot water seemed to be an issue, and for a longer stay the bathroom is tight.
Prós: I was very happy with Arch House - it is very comfortable, clean, extremely well run. The staff were warm and welcoming and very helpful when we needed anything or any information about local amenities. The central location suited our purposes perfectly.
