alternative to N63 for Galway to Roscommon

    That N63 is god awful in parts and when tired and it is dark I find it very taxing. Would Galway to Roscommon via Galway to Athlone on M6 or even the old N6 followed by N61 to Roscommon from Athlone be a better option (don't know anything about the N61). OR is there some other option?

    Athone to Roscommon is a decent road, it's a very wide road as far as the turn for Hodson Bay, then it gets narrower but it's a good road all the way.

    You'd come off the M6 at exit 12 and head north for Roscommon, you don't go through Athlone at all. I'd do M6 & N61 for the easiest route.
