Sipping a glass of wine after a delicious evening meal, meditating on the serenity of the lake and woodland view before is one of the great pleasures of staying at the Westport Woods Hotel & Spa. The elegant Lakeview Restaurant is a friendly place to dine. The regularly changing menues are based on the freshest ingredients available and the chef is justifiably proud of the Féile Bia status. The restaurant seats 150 comfortably.
On the Map: Westport enjoys a coastal location in County Mayo, in the west of Ireland. The town is accessed via the N59 road from Clifden (to the south), or N5 road from Castlebar (to the east).
Westport is a postcard-pretty town with as lovely a main street as you’ll be likely to find anywhere in Ireland. The town lies in the shadow of Croagh Patrick with Clew Bay and its 365 islands just to the west. While in Westport be sure to visit Westport House and climb at least a little of Croagh Patrick. Westport House dates from 1730 and offers everything from a dungeon to a zoo! Croagh Patrick is a 765-meter hill where St. Patrick is said to have banished the snakes from Ireland. This hill is climbed (often barefoot) by thousands of Catholic pilgrims each July. South of Westport are some stunning scenic drives leading into the Connemara region. A trip northwards will bring you to remote Achill island which is accessible by a small bridge. Even further off the beaten path is Belmullet in the northwest corner of County Mayo. Westport also boasts a great selection of traditional pubs, among them Matt Molloy’s of the Chieftains.
