AIT is famous for producing high-quality Business and Hospitality graduates with a specialisation in tourism, and it’s easy to see why. With Athlone Castle, the historic River Shannon, the wildlife reserve and angler’s paradise at nearby Lough Boora parkland, it’s easy to develop a passion for tourism here. Heritage and culture are everywhere in Athlone, including the world famous monastic site at Clonmacnoise. Athlone is the very heart of the new Fáilte Ireland-supported Ireland’s Ancient East tourism project.

The Ring of Kerry, Dublin, The Giant’s Causeway, Belfast, and the Wild Atlantic Way are all accessible from Athlone thanks to fabulous transport links to every part of Ireland.

Whether your interest in tourism is as an Erasmus visitor to our country, or with a view to carving out a career via one of our specialist tourism undergraduate degrees, Athlone is the best place to start.
