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.

We drove into the demesne, and the lands looked beautiful, the setting of the house, the river, the trees. It all looked fabulous. Unfortunately we did not have enough time, to do the tour of the house. Maybe next time. Go there, you wont be disappointed.

The place is great - loads to do for all ages. But entry is expensive as you will want to pay for the extras - bring a picnic

This was a nice distraction for the kids, but not many rides, but not a lot of kids either. Out daughter really enjoyed the Zoorbe which is a big ball with warm water that they roll you down the hill. It was an extra cost. They do provide a change of clothes that you can get wet in.

We visited during August and had a great day. The children enjoyed Zip wire, pedallos and the pirate rides. All the family enjoyed themselves, would recommend to all families. The only complaints were the queues (they have no patience) and wasps ( we got a fine day)

Although there are quite a few attractions, there were only 3 that all my children could go on, the log flume, the swan boats and the train which made for an expensive and rather limited afternoon spent at Westport House, the other suitable attentions ie archery and zorbing were an additional fee on top of an already expensive price

The staff here are very helpful and gave us lots of ideas for places to go. The adventure park is closed. Kids had a scavenger hunt to go - made it fun and relevant good for 9-14 years old
