“nice enough”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

This B & B stay was nice but nothing out of the ordinary. Nice big room but a bit dated in terms of decor. Mini-fridge nice idea but it was not working. Breakfast was good. We chose it because it was between Westport and the Quay. Its a nice walk to either.

This is an unique Irish experience. Up the hill from Westport and a short walk to the water - it is a unique experience. Clean rooms. Delightful host. Great value. We had a tasty Irish breakfast and really enjoyed this great B&B. Good value.

Had fantastic weekend in westport, Boffin Lodge is the perfect place to stay, walking distance to the Quay, walkin distance to town. The rooms are large, spacious and comfortable. Pat made us feel most welcome and was more than helpful. Breakfast menu is great and staff were lovely. Would stay there again for sure!

Our room in Boffin Lodge was comfortable and the shower nice and BIG. The breakfast was good and we enjoyed watching the rooster in the yard. The location was close enough to town centre to be convenient, but not noisy. Pat helped us feel very welcome, we will stay here again!

I stayed here recently on my stay in Westport. The room was beautiful and very spacious, and had a mini bar, tv, hair dryer, temperature control for the room, tea and coffee making facilities. My room also had a steam shower - not sure if that was in all rooms or not though. It was located a little bit out of town, other reviewers have said you would have to drive in, but that depends on how much you like walking - I did the walk in a little over 20 minutes, and it meant I didn't have to try find parking!
The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave recommendations of local places to see. The breakfasts were top notch, with fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals, juices available, and then your choice of cooked breakfast options, including full Irish and French toast!
Would recommend to anyone for a stay.

Enjoyed our recent stay here. Perfect location.Less than 5min walk to the Westport Quay area one way & only about 10min from the town centre in the other direction. Enjoyed breakfast & nice breakfast room. Great value... definitely would stay again!

The Boffin is an excellent value. Fine breakfast, nice rooms. A bit out of town, you'll need to drive in, but the harbor where is Boffin is located is interesting and has a fine pub. There is indeed a lot of fine, traditional music in lovely Westport.
