Active Retirement

When planning your trip, don’t forget that the only way to enter Athlone Castle is by a relatively steep ramp which was created to keep attackers out. Once you are in the courtyard, the new Visitor Centre is easy to get around and we have a lift in the castle visitor centre. Please call us in advance if you need assistance to get up the ramp. We are looking forward seeing you in Athlone Castle Visitor Centre & Museum.
