This is a charming hotel with a lot of character. My travel companion and I requested a two bed set up. We were given a room comprised of actually two separate rooms with a bed in each! One room had a double bed and the other room had a single bed. This would be perfect for a couple with a... More

You cannot get more central to Westport than this place. Car parking next to hotel at an additional cost. Nice clean and tidy. Clearly have invested in training for the staff. However as a Vegetarian I was hugely disappointed with the meager Veggie breakfast. When compared to the full Irish my wife had it was a joke. Just because I... More

Having stayed at the Clew Bay Hotel several times we would not wish to stay anywhere else in Wesport. The staff are very attentive and helpful and it has a family feeling that makes you immediately feel at ease. The breakfast was more than adequate with a dinner menu to suit all tastes. Located in the centre of Westport means... More

Stayed here over the weekend. Location is perfect, right in the centre but still quiet, rooms were clean and modern but very very warm. Breakfast was lovely, great selection. Make sure to pop across to the tea rooms next door and have some of their amazing cakes. Highly recommended.

We decided on a one night getaway in Westport and plumped for the Clew Bay having previously stayed in the Castlecourt. We found the Clew Bay less 'corporate' and more homely. The rate we got included dinner with the B+B and we found this to be excellent value for money. The very cheap car parking (€3 for 24 hours) was... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Staff very helpful & friendly. Only ate here one of the nights & it was very good. Breakfast in morning was all you would need to set you up for the day. Hotel location is right in the heart of Westport with easy access to all the surrounding pubs & restaurants.

We booked a 2 night B&B package with one meal. This was our first time in Westport, and the location is excellent for getting to know the city. The rooms have been updated in this older building, and the radiator control was broken. However, someone came quickly to assist. The staff members were all very friendly and helpful. The restaurant... More
