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 travelled as a family of 3 - 2 adults and one child. He is 3 and therefore could not avail of many of the activities available. It cost us over 50 euro just to get in and access to some things that he might have been to avail of but this was still limited. You also need the weather... More

Excellent staff, very accommodating, the grounds are well kept with plenty of options for all ages. The house was really nice and well set up with a little comedy added with the mirrors that changed the shape of your body. I live locally and this was my first visit, it was good value for money and its a good day... More

Great day pur for the whole family. Arrive early! The house opens an hour before the attractions (10 a.m. and 11a.m. respectively) and you will spend at least that in the house. There's lots of history on the family (descendants of the Pirate Queen Grace O'Malley) and a useful quiz sheet to keep the kids busy. Once you get outside... More

Beautiful park, not really a theme park more a collection rides loosely themed around pirates. Kids enjoyed it, I felt for what it was it was pricey. Still if you have kids to entertain .. Worth a visit

Family of 5 plenty to do.Ticket pricing is a bit strange as you have to combine this and that if you want to avail of all the attractions which can become a very expensive option.From the basic package will fill your day ,Pitch and Putt is like a game of dodgeball when busy beware.

Visited here yesterday with husband and sons. Enjoyed the few he's we spent here but felt at €60 that it was a bit overpriced. That got us entry to the house and the Pirate Adventure activities. But I felt they were a bit babyish for my two sons aged 9 and 10. There were more advanced activities available but these... More

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
