Monksland is strategically positioned in the centre of Ireland, where an esker ridge provides convenient access through the surrounding lowlands to make it the focus of east-west traffic across the river Shannon.

Athlone town is located in the centre of Ireland and is well served by local and national infrastructure.

There is a good existing road network connecting Athlone to Dublin, Galway, Sligo, Limerick, Cork and all the major population centres i.e. east-west (N6 National Primary Road connecting Dublin to Galway) and north-south (National Secondary Routes; Cavan/Belfast N55, Limerick N62 and Sligo M61 routes. The planned dual carriageway from Dublin to Athlone and Athlone to Galway will minimise journey times in the not too distant future.
