A great restaurant, always good food, lively atmosphere. Can be busy at weekends so advisable to book in advance, music also some nights so check who's playing! Friendly, attentive staff so worth a visit.

We rented an apartment with full kitchen etc, but only stayed a night. The apartment was on he basic side but newly refurbished and very clean and comfortable. The dinner bed and breakfast deal was great and we could choose from everything on the menu, with 4 courses. Everything we had was excellent, tasty and very big portions. The restaurant... More

Visited here for dinner - we had no reservation - but that's not advisable. We are locals so they fitted us in. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the food was delicious, its not cheap but still because its nice its worth it.

Food was of a very high standard, service the same could not fault anything. Starter of scallops was outstanding followed by a excellent portion of halibut cooked to perfection

We called in to the Helm and were made very welcome. We didn't want a huge supper so they very kindly offered us smaller portions. We thoroughly enjoyed an excellent meal in lovely surroundings and the staff were great. If you're in Westport, walk down to the Quay area and make sure you call in to the Helm.

solid food choices and great place to get a bite if you're staying near the harbor. my girlfriend wanted to combine different entrees and they happily came up with a dish not on the menu
