is day trip to Westport possible?

Is it possible to travel to Westport for the day. We will be staying in Galway. Or, is that too ambitious?

No problem doing Westport from Galway. Its about 50 miles, should take about an Hour and a half, or an hour and a quarter.

If you are heading out that way, you might also consider taking a side trip to Achill Island which is about 25 miles away from Westport and certainly worth a detour.

Take Care.

Thank you all for the information. I am going to get my itinerary together within the next week and I'll be soliciting advice. I've really learned a lot from these boards. What did we do without the internet? I can't imagine how uch we would miss when traveling.

Thanks Boru & bean...you just gave me an indication of how long it'll take to get from Galway (after return from Aran Islands) to get to Westport. Although, as I have said before, I WILL dawdle along the way...and plan to stop in Clifden (maybe Roundstone also) so I'm sure it'll be a little longer for me :-P
