RTÉ’s Showhouse will feature Athlone on Thursday, March 13th, when a special episode is shown from Bastion Quay and Marina. The show is aired at 8.30 pm on RTÉ 1 on March 13th, so make sure you’re sitting comfortably as the two competing interior designers battle it out. They had no shortage of inspiration for creative ideas with these spacious and luxurious apartments in such a dramatic riverside setting. The first designer was inspired by Bastion Quay’s location on the Left Bank of the River Shannon in Athlone’s historic Old Quarter. This superb situation, within a few steps of the town’s Castle, shops and restaurants is echoed in her romantic reference to the ‘Left Bank in Paris’. The other designer titled her apartment ‘Reflections’ – picturing residents lounging on their spacious balconies, with a glass of wine, overlooking the glistening river, with pleasure boats cruising by and the soothing sounds of the softly-flowing waters in the background. All of Bastion Quay’s apartments feature these stunning river views, are finished to extremely high specifications, and are very spacious, ranging from 1,000 to 1,700 sq. ft. A scheme of Bastion Quay’s calibre, with its private marina, will never again be available in Athlone – given its unique town-centre location, large square footages and stunning views of the River Shannon. This is a low-density luxury development, with top class design in a vibrant and sophisticated location epitomising luxurious waterfront living at its best.
