Located in Athlone’s lively town centre, the 4-star Sheraton Athlone Hotel is close to the best local restaurants, shopping and attractions such as the 13th century Athlone Castle. Guests can look forward to spacious rooms, a 20-metre pool, luxury spa, complimentary high-speed WiFi and free parking. One night’s midweek bed and breakfast is part of this prize. 

Award winning Thyme Restaurant proudly boasts a Michelin Bib Gourmand and with a seasonally inspired menu showcasing the very best of local produce. It’s situated in Athlone’s historic heart. John and Tara Coffey’s atmospheric eatery has accumulated quite a trophy cabinet over the years and it’s easy to see why. A €100 dinner voucher is part of this prize.  

There’s a treat in store for whiskey lovers or anyone who’d like to find out more about the amber liquid. Discover over 270 years of whiskey heritage coupled with a splash of whiskey and a dash of humour along the way on the Athlone Whiskey Walking Tour with Deirdre Keon. You’ll sip your way through the history of distilling in Athlone, while enjoying a leisurely stroll around Athlone’s historical sites. Participants will sample three local whiskeys, two of which come with delicious local handcrafted chocolate pairings. A whiskey walking tour for two is part of this prize.

The Fatted Calf Restaurant on Church Street, Athlone focuses on modern Irish food, expertly executed by head chef Julian Pedraza. It’s a multi-award-winning restaurant with a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. A €50 lunch voucher is part of this prize. 

The aptly named Dead Centre Brewing is the most central craft brewery in Ireland and happens to serve a mean handmade pizza too. Liam Tutty’s lovely copper clad brewery is located on the banks of the River Shannon in the centre of Athlone town. The brewpub is casual, laid back and chilled, just like the beers themselves. The pizzas are entirely made in house with fresh dough, proved for 48 hours before being hand-stretched and topped with the best of Italian and local produce. The brewery tour is fun, interactive and informative. You’ll learn about ingredients, brewing, fermentation, packaging and wrap it all up with a craft beer tasting. A brewery tour and pizza for two is part of this prize.

The value of this prize is over €200. Vouchers will be posted out to the winner. Booking is the responsibility of the winner.
