Description: Westport House and Pirate Adventure Park has welcomed over 4 million...
Westport House and Pirate Adventure Park has welcomed over 4 million visitors with its range of heritage, family-fun, camping and adventure activity offerings. From small beginnings of 2,700 visitors in 1960, it has become one of Ireland’s best loved attractions and was recently voted one of the Best Family Visitor Attractions in Ireland by Primary Times magazine. One of those rare attractions, it appeals to everyone in the family with its extraordinary mixture of-- history and heritage in this 18th century historic house with 4 permanent exhibitions, over 30 rooms open to the public, guided and self-guide tours, tea rooms and gift shops-- the fun of the Pirate Adventure Park – a primarily outdoor amusement park best suited to the under 12’s which features water and swinging ship rides, train, swan Pedaloe boats, slides, playgrounds, pitch & putt and in-door soft play area-- exhilaration with the adventure activities such as zorbing, archery and water sports-- child-friendly fun in its varied events calendar with our Fireworks Extravaganza, Halloween Fest and Winter Wonderland being highlights-- the family-friendly Caravan & Camping Park in the gorgeous park and woodland setting with excellent amenities. Owned and operated by the Browne Family, who have been onsite for over 300 years and can trace their roots back to Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen of Connaught, Westport House provides a full days fun – and more to any visitor to the West. The jewel in the crown of the West, you cannot visit Mayo without stopping in. We look forward to welcoming you.

Ideal family day out with kids under 10. Bring the raingear, otherwise you'll be miserable . Plenty of variety, good restaurant, indoor and outdoor activities.

If you are looking for a place to take the kids besides the wind torn beach (unless your lucky!), this is a nice place although as a past reviewer notes...a little pricey. Still they are all looking to make a profit and as far as I know not a registered charity :-) sadly... Close to the town too and other... More

Beautiful gardens and fantastic guided tour of Westport House. Beautiful grounds for a scenic walk or picnic. Restaurant offered a good choice of meals,snacks and drinks. A bit too old to try the adventure park and wished my grandchildren were there to enjoy the thrills.

You can spend a quiet hour or a wild afternoon, it's your choice! The adventure park does not run all year around so best to check rather then be disappointed but if you... More

We attended on Christmas Eve with our grandson who had come from the UK. From the moment we entered Santa's grotto to find him"asleep" all children in the room were captivated. Santa was superb, flicking his hair & chatting to all the children. He sang songs & put them all at ease. The "high 5" & cuddles at the end... More

The winter wonderland experience was great, the Santa was great and it had a warm special feeling about it. Our little boy was totally enthralled. He waited all day to tell Santa what he wanted but the only problem we had is that the children didn't really have an opportunity to tell Santa what they wanted. We waited until the... More

Enjoyed a family trip to Westport with complimentary tickets for their Winter Wonderland event. Pros. House was beautifully decorated in an authentic Victorian-Christmas style: it was like a scene from Narnia :) Great fun activities: make your own decorative Yule log; decorate your own gingerbread man; face painting- the kids loved it! Father Christmas was well done: kept the kids... More
