Not only is Westport a thriving hub of traditional Irish music, architecture and pubs, where you are certain to be able to find a hearty meal and full pint after a day in the hills, but it is also the gateway to Ireland’s largest island, Achill Island.

Comfy and well equipped home with awesome view

5 of 5
We stayed for 5 nights and used the house as a home base for sightseeing. The hosts Jim & Marie gave us a lot of information about places to visit -it's a great base to explore County Mayo. The highlight of this place for us is the view - it is outstanding and thanks to the fickle Irish weather, the view of Clew Bay was always changing. It's set back on a side road so it is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The home is clean, well equipped, spacious and the kitchen is well stocked, which allowed us to buy groceries and eat at home every night. Highlights of our day trips included Cong, Achilles Island, and Doolough Bay. Also recommend a visit to Stauton's Pub around 5 or 6 pm, which is very close -very friendly locals and live music.
