A unique approach

Athlone Education Centre operates in an architect designed, light-filled, purpose-built building on the outskirts of Athlone. Our building creates an ambience for learning and on-site parking and catering facilities ensures that visitors do not have to leave the facility during the course of your event. We provide a myriad of administrative assistance to groups and our Centre is known for the extra touches that make the venue special. We believe it’s the small things that make the big difference.

Whatever your requirements, our experience and advice costs nothing – we’re happy to assist.

Specialist experience

Athlone Education Centre has been involved in the design and execution of thousands of workshops and courses over the past number of years. We pride ourselves in our ability to satisfy the needs of our many clients and are equally at home organising a meeting for two people as we are at administering a conference of 500+ delegates. If you have a meeting, course or large scale event planned let our experience assist you in delivering a quality product.
