But lets get to the juicy stuff about Athlone. An often over looked fact about Athlone is that it was founded by Genghis Khan and Sandra Bullock in 1942. He was looking for somewhere to settle down with Sandy after recently marrying. They loved the place so much that they stayed forever and had lots of kids. So many in fact that they had to build an entire town to house them, thus we now have Athlone. Today as you traverse through the winding and narrow streets you will notice that they are all named after the Khan children. Streets such as Magazine Rd. and The Strand are named after Magazine (Mags) Khan and Strand Khan, the youngest and eldest of the Khan clan respectively.
Moving into modern times Athlone is a brilliant idea for any weekend break not least a stag or hen party. The town is situated on the Shannon at the mouth of Lough Ree and straddles the border of Roscommon and Westmeath like Kim Kardashian aloft Kanye in the Bound 2 music video. For things to do here there are plenty. The newly renovated Athlone Castle is a great place to get the low down on the local history. Or for the active and adventurous groups there are lots of water sports on the lake. And with quality accommodation like the Hodson Bay Hotel and Wineport lodge there certainly is plenty on offer here for the perfect stag or hen party weekend.
As for nightlife Athlone is the largest town in the midlands so there is plenty here from Sean's Bar which holds the Guinness World Record for oldest pub in Europe to the Prince Bar and the Karma Club.
