“Lovely break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Stayed for two nights in July on a B n B basis. Nice location apartment clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ideal. Had dinner on the first night in the helm restaurant, which was excellent. Was very busy on that same evening, we didn't have a table booked but the lovely staff managed to accommodate us. It's a little bit out of Westport town, about 10 mins drive but a nice location none the less.

We enjoyed our stay. The suite we had was spacious and included a kitchenette and a living room area, plus two large bedrooms. Our family was greeted warmly, there is plenty of space to park, and everything was great other than the Wi-Fi, which they said was "being fixed" in our area. It worked great in the pub/restaurant area though. So all in all, we were very happy with the location, staff, and clenliness as well as the food served at the pub was great!

Another visit for a break last week. The appartment was superb, the food even better, and a brilliant pint of Guinness. The staff are all brilliant so friendly and they not only go the proverbial extra mile but the extra 20 miles. Looking forward to my next visit

The Helm is a great B&B on the Westport Harbour. It is not located in the very center but it is only a 15-min walk until there. The rooms are very spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. One feels at home right away. The Breakfast is very good too, and the service personnel is extremely nice. I would recommend this place for a stay in Westport!

I stayed in an apartment at the Helm for 4 nights as part of a golf tour. The Helm booked (and changed at our request) our golf outings and were very flexible when the numbers in our group unexpectedly changed. The rooms are functional, but a little bare. Where we stayed was not en-suite, but then the price was very low. The room was cleaned on all but one of the days. Breakfast was good, and the service was friendly. The bar was good late at night when there was entertainment and no longer food being served. From 7pm until 9pm it was only worth visiting if you wanted to eat-going for a beer surrounded by diners in a fishy smelling area was unpleasant, and the Sound pub along the street was better.
The Helm is about two miles outside Westport.
Overall, very good, and very helpful people.

Room Tip: The apartments across the road seem to be the quieter rooms.
