From small beginnings of 2,700 visitors in 1960, it has become one of Ireland’s best loved attractions and was recently voted one of the Best Family Visitor Attractions in Ireland by Primary Times magazine. One of those rare attractions, it appeals to everyone in the family with its extraordinary mixture of-- history and heritage in this 18th century historic house with 4 permanent exhibitions, over 30 rooms open to the public, guided and self-guide tours, tea rooms and gift shops-- the fun of the Pirate Adventure Park – a primarily outdoor amusement park best suited to the under 12’s which features water and swinging ship rides, train, swan Pedaloe boats, slides, playgrounds, pitch & putt and in-door soft play area-- exhilaration with the adventure activities such as zorbing, archery and water sports-- child-friendly fun in its varied events calendar with our Fireworks Extravaganza, Halloween Fest and Winter Wonderland being highlights-- the family-friendly Caravan & Camping Park in the gorgeous park and woodland setting with excellent amenities. Owned and operated by the Browne Family, who have been onsite for over 300 years and can trace their roots back to Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen of Connaught, Westport House provides a full days fun – and more to any visitor to the West. The jewel in the crown of the West, you cannot visit Mayo without stopping in. We look forward to welcoming you.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We were in Westport house a few years ago and went back again. We got the combi zip line and zorbing. Which in the two children's reviews were extremely fun. It wasn't to bad value (€18 per child for around 30 minutes to maximum an hour) looking forward to going back again soon.

“great day”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

You can choose which package you want, either rides or adventure. We got there a bit early in the day, but spent our time in the house, which was really interesting. It was a great place for me to spend some really quality time with my children.

“Very Interesting”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Chose to visit the house on a wet day . The house is very interesting with lots on display . The long association of the family with the house, the story of how the present owner saved the hose by opening to visitors and how an ancestor was involved in the end of slavery in Jamaica were all very interesting and well described . The staff were friendly and we enjoyed a relaxed visit .

“A Must Visit !”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Visited Westport house with a hen party, we had booked in to take part in 2 outdoor activities. We had great fun there & the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, you could tell they enjoyed their jobs. We also ate @ the café and was very impressed with the choice on the menu including stone baked pizza's handmade on site ! The food was a bit over priced but you would expect that in these family orientated attractions. I would have loved to have done the tour of Westport House and intend on returning in the near future to do so.
