Westport is situated on the west coast of Ireland in county Mayo. Trident Holiday Homes offers centrally located self catering holiday homes in Westport in a converted grain store over looking the quayside within easy reach of the centre of town.
The self catering holiday apartments are situated at the entrance to Westport House & Gardens, a privately owned 18th century stately home set amidst rolling parkland with views of Clew Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The stately home and grounds are open to the public from May to September and offers additional attractions for children such as a miniature train ride through the grounds, a log flume ride, indoor play area, pitch & putt and a pirate ship adventure ride. The grounds of Westport House are home to Killary Adventure which offers a variety of activities including kayaking, climbing, archery and laser combat games.
Westport is a really lively holiday spot with some interesting craft shops. Most of the pubs hold frequent traditional music sessions such as the pub owned by Matt Molloy (member of the Irish trad group The Chieftains). Many of the town’s restaurants serve fresh, locally caught seafood.
There is no shortage of outdoor activities on offer in the area and a good choice of beaches with Golden Strand, Carramore and Old Head all within 30mins drive of the apartments. For those in search of adventure, the nearby Delphi Mountain Resort offers a fantastic array of exciting activities including kayaking, surfing, raft building, abseiling, rock climbing, zip wire, high ropes, archery and orienteering.
The famous Croagh Patrick is only 15 minutes drive from the town. While it is a challenging climb for any walker, the views from the top of Clew Bay and the surrounding county are really spectacular. At the foot of the mountain is a visitors’ centre which is adjacent to the National Famine Memorial designed by Irish artist John Behan and unveiled by President Robinson in 1997.
