Why Jim Doran chose Hillquarter

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful home located in The Midlands

  • 5 of 5

We were in Ireland for a week, and had a wonderful stay at this home. Huge space that was clean and well equipped. Plenty of space for the 3 children we were with to spread out at play, and had all necessary supplies (crib, highchair, toys).

Easy access to the M6, with groceries and shopping near by. Athlone is a vibrant city with lots to offer-history, restaurants, and wonderful people.

Jim was a pleasure to deal with as well.

A trip that I will remember!!

Nice home for large group

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 14 with 3 generations staying in the house. The house had plenty of room for everyone and had everything we needed. The house was conveniently located to the town of Athlone.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Jim was a wonderful host. He facilitated getting help to us when a minor emergency occurred. He was highly responsive prior to our arrival and during our stay.

The house was ideal for our family. The six bedrooms were comfortable; and, having two sitting rooms at opposite ends of the house was ideal for teens and their interests and the rest of us with our interests.

One must have sufficient transportation for everyone in one's party due to the need to drive into town for groceries, see the local sites and enjoy everything Athlone has to offer. The property location is rather distant from the town center - ideal for relaxing and enjoying the semi-remote location.

Be ready to drive your recycling to the central recycling center (a small fee is charged by the center).

Make sure to use the GPS coordinates to locate the property.

Fantastic 'Home Away from Home' to attend an Irish Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I was part of a of multi-generational family who rented the owner's home for a week in April. The home had everything the owner had stated and it was our 'home' base to get acquainted with the local area prior to attending a family wedding. I highly recommend this rental!
