Description: Westport House and Pirate Adventure Park has welcomed over 4 million...
Westport House and Pirate Adventure Park has welcomed over 4 million visitors with its range of heritage, family-fun, camping and adventure activity offerings. 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.

lovely day out. Kids had a ball on the swing boat and the slides and loved the splash ride. The house is really interesting. The food at Gracie's bar near the campsite is great, as are the pints.

I was in 2 minds as to whether I should spend the €60 on a visit to Westport House after reading very mixed reviews on TripAdvisor but I'm so glad I decided to go. It was a great day out for the family. It's pricey at €60 but worth it as you can spend an entire day there. Unfortunately the... More

Its a great day out, interesting reading for the adults in westport house and plenty of fun stuff to knock the kids out when its bed time. Bring a picnic if you can, they will get hungry and the food in the childrens play area is "not for kids"...You can camp there also, but if like us, you are on... More

Went with our baby and almost 3 year old. Considering how much it cost I don't think it was good value for money although we did enjoy the day and I do think older kids would love it. But for us it probably wasn't worth the hefty fee in (€42 for 2 adults) as our 2 year old just wasn't... More

We've been to Westport House many times before, but it never fails to deliver a fun day out for young children (10 and younger) - the pirate adventure park allows the children to go on the Ship and the Plunge unsupervised by us and this they totally love. It's very safe and there's something for all young children to do... More

The house is beautiful. The grounds are unique in that there are adventure parks, a little train and swan pedal boats.
