  • You couldn't find a more beautiful place or vista!

    "Other reviewers have commented that the pictures on the site don't do this home justice and they were right. This is an absolutely stunning house with beautiful and quality attention to detail in the architecture and decor--every room is beautifully appointed. There is lots of room for a family or group to enjoy themselves, have space to spread out or all be together. And all amenities are taken care of so it really is worry free. The views from the main room out to the sheep pastures and bay are wonderfully pastoral and you can feel yourself relax just gazing out at the scenery. The kitchen is a dream in which to prepare a meal or enjoy a glass (or two) of wine or Guinness and our group may have set a new record judging by the empty bottles! What is better than sitting in a window seat looking out on the magnificent scenery or turning your gaze to the beautiful great room that incorporates a living area, dining area and fabulous kitchen--the views are wonderful no matter where you look.The owner and family are wonderfully attentive to every need and in ensuring that your stay is not only enjoyable, but top notch. We enjoyed the surrounding area...by foot or by car...there is so much to discover and enjoy in this area of Ireland. We can't say enough about this property...and hope others get to share in the experience."

  • Like a four leaf clover

    "Oh boy did we love this place. The castle, the setting, the lake, the forest…all better than expected. It's the perfect quiet get away. I'll admit that we didn't do much more than eat and check out the local scenery..and eat some more. The kitchen is fully equipped, and that means fully. We've been traveling around Europe for a year and often that means two pots and a pan. There is a great reference book with many of the local attractions and restaurants that was very helpful. I'll add to that list Kai restaurant in Galway (!!!) and a trip to Kylemore Abbey in Connemara. It's to the North and about an 1.5+ drive, but absolutely worth it. Also, Ashford Castle…more to the point, eating at Ashford Castle. The afternoon tea is amazing and the Fish and Chips I might actually swim back for. Our two weeks were amazing. I only wish my family could have been able to make it. The kids would have been in Heaven. It's also 100% Mastiff approved."

Westport House is one of Mayo County’s most well known attractions. The house is a tribute to Grace O’Malley who was otherwise known as Granuaile the Pirate Queen of Connaught. During the 16th century, Granuaile ruled the seas and coastline in the west of Ireland. At the time, she was the leader of the O’Malley clan and believed to be at the root of all the rebellions that occurs in western Ireland during that time. She owned many castles in the region and Westport House was later built on the ruins of one of these sites. There is still a part of the original castle that can be viewed in the castle basement which is known as the dungeons. Westport House was built in the 18th century and designed by two well known architects of the time namely, Richard Cassels and James Wyatt. It sits on an expansive estate with immaculate gardens, terraces, a lake and magnificent views over the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the estate is the Country Park which is an entertaining amusement park. The park is open throughout the summer season and offers pirate ship rides, exploration of Treasure Island, slides, rides and play parks.
