For activities you could try climbing Croagh Patrick (about 6 miles outside town at Murrisk?), afterwards go for a swim in Bertra Beach. Alternatively you can hire bikes in Westport and cycle out to Croagh Patrick and back on a cycle lane (VERY scenic). At the base of Croagh Patrick there is a lovely old pub called Campbells, which does food also I think. Further towards town two good pubs/restaurants is The Tarvern and The Sheebeen.

In town the most famous pub is Matt Molloys, and across from it a pub/shop called either Morans or Lavelles I think..plenty of pubs along Bridge Street. Sol Rio is a popular restaurant on Bridge Street, and the best restaurants are Sage, The Pantry & Corkscrew, and An Port Mor. There are other more cheap and cheery restuarants along Bridge Street. There are also good pub/restaurants down on the harbour - 15 minutes walk from town - The Towers and The Asguard. Have fun!

A trip to Clare Island would take most of a day but worth it for the experience of having a few scoops in the hotel!http://www.omalleyferries.com/
