Westport

Renowned for its Georgian architecture, Westport sits in the shadows of Croagh Patrick, considered the holiest mountain in Ireland. Despite its popularity with pilgrims from around the world, Westport remains a small town largely unspoiled by mass tourism. Its lively tree-lined streets offer easy access to a string of fine restaurants, shops, and pubs, known for their live music and relaxed atmosphere. Reachable from Dublin by car, train, or airplane, this photogenic little town provides a good base for exploring the country's western coastline or trekking up to the summit of the holy mountain, where Saint Patrick reputedly fasted for 40 days. Westport is in County Mayo. Use our Ireland online route planner to plan your trip to Westport and other destinations in Ireland.

Where to stay in Westport

Many tourists visit Westport for the nightlife or to use it as a base for travel around County Mayo. Though you will most likely spend your time at cafes, pubs, or touring the surrounding countryside, reserve a spot to stay in town in the convenient, historical Quay district. Here you'll find a range of hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts. If traveling on a budget, look outside the city center for lodging options. Those wanting a more luxurious vacation spot should check out one of the city's many scenic spa destinations.
