I stayed with family for 3 nights at the Harbour Mill Aparts.Situation on the waterfront. It is a great location if you wanted to explore both Westport and the surrounding areas of Louisburgh, Croagh Patrick & Leeann. Great pubs are resturants on your door step ( or a short walk approx1 mile into westport town) .Situation beside Westport House great for the kids and we would definitely love to go back. Staff were very helpful and friendly .Very spacious, comfortable, warm. Great facilities, spa, sauna etc. And a lovely cosy fireplace at the bar. Having the kitchen /dinning area was a major plus for keeping family costs down. Would definetly love to stay there again cant wait for the opportunity to arise.

I stayed at the Harbour Mill with my partner for 3 nights.
It was lovely and warm and cosy with plenty of space.
We were on the 4th floor,courtyard room.The bedroom was lovely and the ensuite.The 2nd bathroom which I didnt need to use isnt quite as luxurious,a little clinical looking or something but clean so no complaints.The staff are very friendly and accomodating.about 6 euro on a taxi into westport and lovely walks nearby.We walked croagh Patrick on a lovely sunny and cold day and I would highly recommend.I dont think I would pay extra for Harbour view,there arn't any balconies and the view is better on food by the front of the complex.I think that the price could be a little lower off peak in November as It still was hotel pricing.The sitting room space is ideal,great to get a takeaway and watch a dvd if cold and wet out.I would highly recommend for couples trips and for families.Its lovely and clean.On the price again,If you are a couple like we were,It might be better to bring another to bring the price down plus there is plenty of space.I would highly recommend to others as It had been done to me so I have no negatives at all.I would love to come back to Westport and the Harbour Mill.It lived up to my expectations that others had given to me!

Room Tip: Enjoy! and I wouldnt pay more for Harbour view.the whole area is scenic and you dont get a fantatsti...

Staff were very helpful. Apts clean and spacious. They are located about a mile from Westport but there are lovely pubs and restaurants nearby. Music in the pubs every night it seemed and this really added to athmosphere. A great location in which to explore the region.Highly recommended.We had a great time!!

I have no difficulty recommending this facility. Clean, airy, bright rooms. Very spacious. Comfortable and convenient with friendly staff. Quiet during our stay but the layout of the floor might cause some noise problems if they had rowdy peole in as bedrooms face onto the courtyards and the walkways. Loved the view of the quay from our window. Single beds in the second bedroom were on the small side and anyone over weight or over 6ft might find them very uncomfortable. Far more suitable for children. Bit over priced for the current market but we really enjoyed our stay. Would go back again if ever in the area.

Dear Guest.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of The Harbour Mill Apartments. We are pleased to hear about your stay with us and very glad that you enjoyed your visit. I was sorry to read that you were dissatisfied with our single beds, I have checked with our accommodation manager and she has reassured me that they are 3ft X 6ft in length, we would take this to be a standard size for single beds. Some of our apartments are fitted with 2 double beds which are 5ft 6'' by 6ft, which may be more comfortable, when booking please advise reception of this. We also find that we offer superb Special offers particularly in quieter months, if you feel this was not the case please contact me personally at aisling@theharbourmill.com to discuss your booking in more detail.
I am glad to hear that you would not hesitate in recommending us and we look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back in the future.
Kindest Regards

My husband and I booked a three day mid week break. There was a 24 hour reception desk with friendly helpful staff. Our third floor appartment was clean and comfortable and the bedrooms attractive. ( one double, one twin) The kitchen area had all the appliances a family would need for a one or two week self catering stay. It was very quiet when we were there. Apart from breakfast we ate out. There were several good restaurants within walking distance and there was a discount to Harbour Mill residents using a card from the reception desk at Harbour Mill. There was covered parking for residents although we didn't use it and left our car in the free public carpark opposite. Westport Quay is about a mile out of Westport Town. There is a convenience store next to the appartemnt as well as some other shops and a cafe with free wi fi. The lack of wi fi in the appartment was a slight drawback though not a major one on a short break. There is a play park for young children a short walk away. We have recommended the appartments to our children for a summer break with their own children. There was a small welcome pack of tea, coffee and milk and a drying cloth and dish cloth were provided. A hairdryer would have been useful. Soap was also provided but don't forget to bring your washing up liquid, shampoo and shower gel with you or collect in one of the supermarkets in Westport., a lot of which open late Our weather wasn't great, but the place was warm and there were no drafts. The heating was effective and easy to adjust, as were the windows.. I would happily return and stay a little longer.
