I had a lovely stay, breakfast was lovely ideal location for me, it was also very close to the harbour. Car parking was a little tight and probably could do with a little updating. The owner was quite friendly I would be a little concerned if he was not there. Maybe a little expensive for what your getting but all... More

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon in Ireland. We had the four poster room, so payed a little bit more (100 euros), but it was a very nice room, if a little dark. The lodge itself is huge (you wouldn't know from looking at it from the outside), but the service was still very friendly. The location... More

My wife, daughter and I found this accommodation ideally situated for a lot of local attractions, that were within walking distance. The rooms were of a good size, well maintained and we were replenished frequently with refreshments. Staff were all very friendly, there were a good choice of breakfasts available and were all excellent - try the tea loaf, absolutely... More

Located approximately 1 1/2 miles from downtown Westport this B&B provides a quiet setting away from the noise of the city. Patrick, the owner, is one of the friendliest, most competent, helpful B&B owner we have encountered. He runs a neat, clean, cozy B&B. His attention to detail and willingness to be of service to his guests is commendable. The... More

This was our second stay at Boffin Lodge during Westport Festival, and we would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a base central to the town, quay and Westport house. It was comfortable, clean, and cosy, with very helpful and friendly staff. We had a large family room, with large ensuite which had an excellent monsoon type shower, and lsoft... More

Can't say enough about this guest house. Clean as a whistle. Room no. 6 was huge with a lovely ensuite. The staff were very helpful and Ciara was very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were in a lovely dining room overlooking the garden that had some chickens wandering around. The owners have everything covered from mini bar, plenty of towels,... More

PROS: 1. Inexpensive 2. Location - Beside supermarket (although the house is literally in the supermarket carpark), Quays promenade, Entrance to Westport House and 1km from town centre CONS: 1. Unclean - On arrival, the house stank of cigarette smoke. We found toenail clippings on stairs and beside couch. There was makeup on one of the bed's pillow cases and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights recently a family of 2 adults and 1 child. The B and B was really quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Westport. The breakfast was great and we will definitely return to this B and B.
