Custume House

Custume House AthloneCustume House is located at Bonavalley, Athlone, Co. Westmeath. It is a 7 bedroom facility and was officially opened on the 2nd November 2006 by then Minister for Defence Mr. Willie O’Dea TD.

In order to complete the work the ONE received help and assistance from the Defence Forces, the Department of Defence and the local authorities in Athlone and Westmeath.

To reach the house, just take junction 8 off the M6 Dublin-Galway motorway and drive towards Athlone town centre.
