Quigley's Marina is located just 20 minutes outside Athlone Town in the heart of Ireland. Athlone is a large town with an abundance of essential amenities which inculde a train station which has a direct link to Dublin City and Buses which stop at Dublin airport and also Dublin City center. Athlone Town is 45 minutes cruising from the Marina, a great first stop for any of our customers. You will find an exciting night life with numerous pubs and restaurants to avail of.
The Marina is on the shore of Lough Ree sheltered within the inner lakes. It has a facility to hold 150 boats. Our customers are provided with keys to use the showers and toilets in the Marina with no added cost.
During hire boat season our office and fuel pump opening times are from 9.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday (lunch from 1.00pm to 1.45pm). Closed on Sundays.
Glasson Village, also known as 'The Village of Roses' is 5km away from the Marina. It is very well known for its restaurants with fantastic food and having a pint with the locals! There is also a small supermarket located in the village.
Only 10 minutes walk from the harbour is the Killinure Chalets, also known as Manfred's and Geraldine's. The restaurant is open from April to the end of October from Wednesday to Monday (closed on Tuesday's) and serve food from 6pm to 10pm. We would highly recommend the steaks as this is an experience not to be missed.
