We stayed in one of the family rooms which was very spacious especially the bathroom. In a great position as its half way between the town and the quay. All the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very good

I am currrently a guest in Boffin Lodge, Westport. It has surpassed all my expectations of a B&B. Rooms are spacious, amazing shower(!), heated towel rails, a very reasonable priced minibar and a really great breakfast. Lovely staff, friendly and efficient. I would give Boffin Lodge six stars if there was that option!

Bit of a walk into town but nothing that isn't manageable, and if you are interested in the harbour it is actually located between the town and harbour so may be suitable. Lots of breakfast options, and we thought ordering the night before was a good idea. Little fridge in the room with a small selection of goods which although... More

We stayed 3 days at Boffin Lodge during our 2 weeks travelling in Ireland and according to us this was the best B&B we stayed in. We had a spacious and tidy room. There was lots of choice for breakfast and all was very tasteful. We would recommend this B&B to everyone who's looking for a place to stay in... More

Room was very dated and depressing, but it was clean. On arrival the welcome was average. The place is located very close to the main road. If you are not on a budget, spend a bit more and give this place a miss

We stayed in the apartments which were clean and comfortable. The quay with fabulous food was a few minutes leisurely walk. Pat was extremely helpful and put himself out to help when we had a problem. We would be very happy to return.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Boffin Lodge. I traveled alone, to Westport from Dublin, having heard such nice things about the town, and The Boffin was highly recommended. I would also recommend it! The owners were very helpful, and it was a great quiet escape. The breakfast was large, and nice. Its closer to the Quay but is... More

This was my first stay at a B&B and Boffin lodge exceeded my expectations. Mary and Pat were very helpful and gave a very warm welcome and great breakfasts! The room had everything I needed and more. Typically I don't sleep well away from home. However I slept very well at Boffin, it was quiet and the bed was very... More

This was my first trip to Ireland, and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction. From Mary's warm, kind welcome to the chickens in the back yard (hence the title of my review) my experience was unique and delightful. The Lodge is lovely, quiet, clean and charming. It's an easy wander to the waterfront of Westport and the beautiful... More

Ideally located halfway between the quays & Westport. Our room was very spacious, (I think it was no. 10) large bathroom, closet, tv, minibar, dresser, & hairdryer. our room was located upstairs, which for us was fine, but I think if you have difficulty walking, (i.e. bad knee, hip) ask for a room down stairs. The décor is a bit... More
