Found it to be a bit overpriced with a seven year old that does not like rides. Unfortunately she is tall so was not allowed on the go karts or the bouncy castle which she would have loved. She was gutted therefore made it hard for me. Saying that staff were lovely and food and coffee were great.

Visted late august 2015, this year they have some new pay rides such as the hurdy gurdy, merry-go-round horses, charged at 3 euro. The house continues to be run-down, dilapidated and damp . The history seems to grow more nationalistic every year but interesting none the less. The main fun is on the cannon ball run, and the pirate park,.... More

I recently visited Westport House and i was very disappointed with it. We were charged €60 for 2adults and 2children on arrival. The minute we stepped out the door and went to go on one of the carousel we were told we had to pay for it. Then we went to the other carousel which is right beside the playground... More
