    Beautiful bike ride from Newport to Achill Island, well maintained, well marked bike path. Mostly level ride with few ups band downs. The countryside was spectacularly beautiful, with views onto fields and sheep farms, ancient ruins, and Clew Bay and its many islands

    The Westport House tour was great and the grounds are amazing! So much history and interesting insights into life in Ireland during George IV's reign. There was information regarding slavery in Ireland and the end of slavery in Ireland as well.
    The pirate playground was not operating when we visited, but the cheesy swan boats were there to see.

    What a wonderful experience! Myself and my partner have zero experience riding horses and first time in Westport. Kitty was great at communicating via email to organise time and date for our horse ride. She kitted us out with helmets and riding boots when we arrived. Julia brought us on our riding trail and it was wonderful. Beautiful horses and Julia was an especially great instructor. We had a brilliant time and enjoyed the views and learning a bit more about horses. Highly recommend checking it out if you’re in Westport and super cost effective compared to prices in Wicklow/Dublin area.

    Lovely day at Westport house over the bank holiday weekend.
    Slightly overpriced - for a family of 3 - we were €70 this included the House tour.
    Grounds are beautiful but the adventure area is small and has 4 rides included.

    A lovely piece of street art almost directly opposite the start of the Crough Patrick climb. Well worth the few minutes to look and let your mind wander to the conditions early emigrants had to endure..

    We went with our kids to Wild West to play several times during our stay in Westport. The place is spotlessly clean and the service is top notch. Our children also loved the chicken fingers. They said they were the best in Ireland! There is something for everyone at this location. They even have a sensory room!

    Padraic Foy is the owner of the stables. He is a renown trainer and horseman in Ireland. He is schooled in the Monte Roberts Method of Horsemanship. His horses are excellent examples of the horses of Ireland and he ensures each guest has a horse that meets their individual riding experience. The 5 day riding experience is a once in a lifetime event. Padraic leads each of the daily rides and includes points of interest along the way. Riders with an intermediate skill level will thoroughly enjoy the experience.

    A very pleasant walkable but hilly town many interesting shops restaurants places of interest some good book shops. An excellent and very central hotel. The Wyatt hotel was comfortable we had a quiet well appointed ground floor room hotel staff were friendly and helpful many restaurants to choose from in and beyond the hotel. Food was excellent parking was problematic we enjoyed our stay there was always something to do. A very enjoyable few days and prices were reasonable

    Church lit with candles, beautiful flowers, musci from the brass band, choir and congregational singing and a packed church. The spirit of Christmas is for 366 days the priest reminded us, next year a leap year.

    Beautiful unspoilt beach with plenty of adjacent parking. Great for a long walk or a paddle (bear in mind that this was September!). Only downside was a few local dog walkers with annoying yappy dogs off lead!
