Things To Do In Westport

Hi I'll be in Westport for two months, May and June, and I'm trying to find some fun things to do. I won't have a car so I need things that are walkable or possibly can be reached by bus! I'm 21, very active, and broke so cheap is good! I'm thinking things to do on the weekends as well as pubs and things to go to at night. Thanks a million in advance!

Buy a 2nd hand bike when you get there. You should get one for €50 if you are willing to search. (Or maybe someone up there will give you loan of a bike for free !!) The area around Westport is a cyclists paradise. Also, bring your hiking boots, no doubt you will want to climb Croagh Patrick (at least once) during your stay, not to mention a great selection of other mountains in the area. Lucky you !!

Westport Music Festival- June 29th- tickets are expensive, but should be lots of music around town. There's a book you could purchase or maybe get at a library called Clew Bay Archeological Trail- follow it!

You'll have a great time!!! The Greenway is fabulous for cycling and walking. A trip to Achill Island would be a great day. The music festival looks amazing (trying to get there myself). The beaches looked nice in the area as well. Enjoy!

I second the recommendation of the Clew Bay Archaeological trail, which we followed several years ago; we bought a booklet from the Heritage Centre in Westport, but you'll find details of sites here:


Although there will be a cost for the bus + ferry, do try to get to Clare Island for a day (maybe a night??) :


You'll find details of events on the Island on the O'Malley web-site.

Achill is another great suggestion:


and this Museum is very interesting:


Bus services for Mayo:
