There is no one to meet you - so you have to ring or go to a local shop. Very quirky place and rather cramped room. It was clean and the breakfast was very good and the owners friendly at breakfast. I didnt realise it was right in the middle of town so would have chosen to stay at the... More

We stayed just one night at the Elephant, we had requested a late arrival and were accommodated well. The room was small, but really...how much room do you need?! The bed was HUGE and extremely comfortable which was appreciated much more than floor space. Everything was clean and nicely decorated and the shower was just fabulous. There was no hair... More

I've been to Westport a number of times and the Elephant is the best one so far. People criticise the size of the rooms, they do appear small but it's because the beds are HUGE! There is little room for luggage but there are wardrobes so put it away and problem solved. Breakfast was amazing and I even got offered... More

We were lucky to snag a room on a busy weekend in Westport. Our first impression was that the room was very nice, but cramped with a king-sized bed. There was little room for luggage, but the bed was huge. We had a minor problem with the plumbing that was quickly resolved. The room was quiet and comfortable, and we... More

A big thank you to Bernie and Des for a fantastic stay at their elephant guest house. We had such a relaxing time, room was soooo clean and fresh, great to just relax at night and watch the t v from a king size bed. The breakfast was amazing, so much to choose from and freshly made. Great to be... More

Stayed there for the Westport Festival so it was quite expensive for the room we got. However when I was unable to shower due to no hot water, I was not impressed - especially after being at a festival all weekend. When I spoke to the owner I was told it was because everyone was having showers at the same... More

We recently stayed at the Elephant Guest House and from the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. A warm welcome awaited us from Bernie and Des who did everything they possibly could to make it an enjoyable experience. The rooms were fresh and clean and tastefully decorated and the breakfast was gorgeous - cooked freshly to order, and... More

Really convenient location right in the heart of Westport. Really nice new furnishings and very comfortable bed! The room is very cozy but we didn't need heaps of space anyway. The breakfasts were amazing and fresh cooked to order with the best bacon and sausages I've tasted anywhere in the world! Great value for money.

Congratulations to Bernie & Des on a great B&B!. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds and linens are fantastic! Breakfast is great and Bernie & Des could not do enough for us. Would highly recommend The Elephant Guest House!.

We arrived late into Westport after a long drive from Portadown in heavy rain. Stopping at a gas station we learned about the lovely renovated B & B recently opened. The Proprietor Paul agreed to wait for us as he was just about to leave. We were able to park right out in front of the B & B and... More
