Westport is a lovely town to walk around, do a bit of shopping, have a coffee and soak up the atmosphere. You could also visit Westport House and Gardens which is in a beautiful parkland setting with fabulous scenic views.

West port House is very close to your hotel. Quay Cottage is on the right on the way to the House http://quaycottage.com/ which is gorgeous for a spot of tea and treats.

those sound like very nice suggestions, would they apply also to someone staying at Castlecourt Hotel? Would it be an easy walk for a couple of ladies of a certain age? :-)

The Castlecourt is a lot further away from Westport House. Getting there involves a hill climb and a long descent, then back again! As you are minutes away from the town centre, you have the option of strolling around a beautiful town, zigzagging the side streets and indulging in vast amounts of home cooked pastries.....

What can I say, best laid plans !!! Westport House was closed the afternoon we were there. Told that they were getting ready for the official season. We spent the few hour we had in town and walking around the area which really was a yucky afternoon anyway. Loved the hotel and the area and ..... the Westport Wine Coolers that I also found in Dublin .... yeah! With pineapple yet..... new and interesting taste. May have to inquire at our LCBO to try and get them to order them. Can try anyway. Again ..thanks to all.

Enjoyed our trip on Royal Irish .... weather held out for most part, the Cliffs and Causeway we had sun ... loved Ireland and will return again someday.
