Date: 8 Aug 2018


For Wasps’ supporters travelling to Athlone for the pre-season friendly on Saturday 18th August, to ensure you get the most out of the trip and get the chance to meet up with other Wasps’ here is some background information of what to do and where to meet in the evening & pre-match. 

On the main street of Athlone The Castle Inn will host us on Friday night as Wasps’ meeting point from 6.30/7.00pm onwards. 

The Castle Inn have said that they will do a pint and a pizza for Wasps fans for 10 Euros. There is live music Friday and Saturday night as well.

Whilst the The Castle Inn does offer food, they have advised us they are less likely to be able to accommodate large numbers at one time, and suggest meeting early evening, having a drink then head off to a suitable restaurant for dinner and returning for the night’s craic & sing-song!

The following restaurants can cater for larger groups and are of a high standard.

Friday night is normally busy so early reservation would be recommended….
