DREAMING OF A LATE Sunday snooze? How about brunch with river views?

The Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone is located right on the banks of the River Shannon in the heart of Athlone town, with a deck overlooking the marina.

We’re giving one reader of‘s Family Magazine the chance to win a chilled out weekend for two in Athlone. You’ll stay on a Saturday night, indulge in a leisurely brunch on Sunday in the Quayside Bar & Lounge, and have a late check out for that all-important lie-in.

On arrival, take a swim in the hotel’s Synergy Health & Leisure Club, or relax on the terrace overlooking the river, watching the boats go by.

At brunch – served on Sundays from 11am – 3pm – choose from a menu of dishes like Eggs Royale, stacks of Belgian waffles with maple syrup and Chantilly cream, or a vibrant veggie-packed salad.
