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.

This was great fun and a brilliant day out. We had two teenagers with us and we spent the day trying out everything the park had to offer from the log flumes to the big slide, the swan lake rides, the zorbing not to mention taking not so sneaky snapchats with the Easter bunny. Westport house was lovely and we... More

Westport House is a grand journey back in time with memorabilia from the Pirate Queen down through her entire family to current generations. But the ground have been given over to the kids in a good family fun way. Multiple venues provide numerous activities for families to have very real fun experiences.

I have been to Westport House twice over the past week and just had to write this review. I have a children aged between 5 and 10 years and they all had a great time going on a variety of different rides as many times as they wished. You pay in and you don't need to put your hand in... More

We visited on a rainy afternoon, and spent most of our time in the house. We found this attraction to have friendly staff, well laid out traffic pattern through the house, good display signage - all in all very enjoyable afternoon!

It was a beautiful day which added to fun as majority of attractions are outdoor, gracy's bar is a bit pricy, our lunch came to €59, food is average quality, medium size portions, pizza is extra thin...

Westport house and grounds are beautiful to look around, and offer a variety of activities such as archery, pitch and put, and bubble football to name a few however the activities aren't included in the entry fee and tend to be quite a bit more! But it's worth a visit if your in the area 😊

We were the last visitors on a Sunday at 3pm, house was closing at 4pm, so really not enough time but no excuse for toilets being locked and the audiovisual in exhibitions being turned off, staff not helpful. Such a shame, it's a wonderful place, the House itself is a complete treasure trove appropriately enough with the Grainne Uaile connection.... More
