athlone art heritage ltdAthlone Castle, located right in the heart of the town, is of huge significance historically and welcomes many visitors each year.  The nearby Luan Art Gallery opened its doors in 2012 and provides a range of arts related facilities including a state of the art exhibition space and a variety of education programmes.  Both sites are managed by Athlone Art & Heritage Ltd, an initiative which also oversees The Count John McCormack Exhibition and Abbey Road Artists' Studios.
