“Westports Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Situated in the heart of Westport, St Anthonys bed and breakfast lies in the perfect location. Owing to the high evergreen hedge, magnificent beech trees dotted beyond the old wall at the end of the garden and the Carrowbeg river which runs adjacent to the property, this bed and breakfast retains a special feeling of seclusion whilst being close enough to have the town at your fingertips.
After I had noted the cleanliness and attention to detail of my own room and became accustomed to the property(tastefully decorated with a 'less is more' contemporary style), I was introduced to the staff. Bright and bubbly, welcoming and warm, they made me feel at home instantly. Easily approachable and very informative, any questions I had about dining, outdoor activities, cultural landmarks and the history of the town itself were met with enthusiasm.
To top it all off, the breakfast was well cooked, flavorsome and on time(of your choosing).

I highly recommend this fantastic establishment, more a secret getaway than your average bed and breakfast, it really does deserve the title; 'Westports hidden Gem'.

Room Tip: "7 is heaven."

Hi Thank you for the great review. The garden is a work in progress and some day we hope to have it alive with lots of yummie veggies for us all to enjoy. Thank you again.

excellent house with all facilities, a spacious bedroom and en suite including spa bath . We were made to feel extremely welcome the minute we arrived and help was on hand to carry our suitcases upstairs. Excellent secure car parking was available while we able to enjoy the lively night life of Westport without any concerns. Breakfast was served by cheerful and obliging staff and we "wanted for nothing". We would certainly use this location again as a touring centre for this stunning region of Ireland.

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review for us. The B&B is in a great location with out having to worry about noise at night or taking taxis as the main street is a two minute walk away. Glad you enjoyed your stay with us and if you are ever back this way we would love to have you stay with us again.

Excellent, spacious room with a large bath. Upon registering, the hotel informs the guest to treat the St. Anthony as your home and they are not kidding. The living room is comfortable and inviting and the hotel has a large back garden. Breakfast is excellent with a selection of items and an emphasis on healthy ingredients. The heart of Westport is a mere 5 min walk.

Hello thank you for the great review. We are constantly trying to improve the house so it is a work in progress! We try hard with our breakfast and use an award winning butchers from Newport for our meat and also try to give other healthier options as well with fresh orange juice and fruit. We are always happy with feedback so thank you again for the review.

Have just spent three days at St. Anthony's . The friendliness of the staff is second to none. We had a riverside room, and it had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and you chose a time to suit yourself between 8 and 10.

The guest house is just a five minute walk to the centre of Westport, so you are right in the hub, for all the excellent restaurants and bars. Yet you have your own wee oasis of peace and quiet in St Anthony's.

Would recommend to all age groups, suits older people like us, but ideal for families and younger guests too.

Room Tip: We had a river view room, which was in a separate block from main house, very private.

Thank you for the great review. All of us here love getting them and the staff are delighted with great feedback. The riverside rooms are really popular as people love feeling like they are in their own private space. Renovating is on the agenda this year to make them even more special! Thanks again for your review

I stayed here twice, once for business and once for pleasure, and adored it both times. Friendly, efficient and kind staff full of caring tips, quiet yet central location, and a great breakfast. The rooms are a true cut above most B&Bs, with classy decor and good strong hot showers. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: If you are there during a heat wave, then rooms not on the street are preferable -- open windows mak...

Thank you for the review. People always love our showers apparently power showers are hard to get in Ireland as all our guests comment on them! The main house was recently renovated and we are always trying to improve! Look forward to seeing you again if you are ever this way.

We picked St. Anthony's because we were traveling with our teenage son and they had a family "suite" which turned out to be perfect for us. My husband and I had a nice-sized, comfortable and well-appointed room over-looking a babbling brook, while our son had a smaller adjoining bedroom and we shared an en-suite bathroom. The room was with a few others apart from the main house in a separate building, so it was private and quiet. The only sounds we heard were from the afore-mentioned brook. The owner and staff were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and the breakfast was very good. Bed was comfortable, too. We were in Westport to bike the Greenway and St. Anthony's is just a block or two away from Clew Bay Bikes so this was a perfect location.

Thank you for the lovely review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope you enjoyed the greenway as well! Very handy that Clew Bay Bike Hire is next to us as more and more of our guests are coming to cycle the greenway. Thank you for taking the time to review us, it means a lot to us!
