Nice place to visit while in Westport but choose a good dry day as there isn't many places to take cover. The Pirate Adventure park is a bit pricey considering that not everything is included in the price.

We travelled there on Thursday with two children, a grandfather, two single women and we had a great time. The price is a bit steep, and if the rain hadn't held off, there might not have been as many things to see or do, but we were lucky. The children loved the swan ride, the plunge, the cannonball run and... More

This is our fourth visit to Westport House and on this occasion Lily Allen was visiting too. Although it is relatively expensive for entry, once you have paid you have access to almost everything. The things that cost extra are zorbing and zip line. As a family with 5 kids (ages 15,11,7,3 & 3) we were never short of something... More

My husband and I went to Westport House with our daughter, son-in-law and daughter on 9th July. The grounds are beautiful to walk around and it costs 5 euro for this privilege. Our granddaughter is only 14 months so there wasn't much entertainment she could avail of but it cost her parents 21 euro each to accompany her on the... More

I don't like leaving negative reviews about local attractions so I'm delighted to update with a more positive review. On this occasion the weather wasn't as good, it was a... More
