Good park. Not many rides. But expensive considering what you are getting. For teens there isn't many things for them to do except the swinging ship and the log ride. Very good for younger children. Great day out for all the family.

A brilliant place to take children, lots of things to do to keep them entertained for hours. The swan boats, cannonball run & swinging pirate ship were firm favourites with our kids!

While visiting Westport we found ourselves at the entrance to the Westport House grounds and we decided to visit. For the next two hours we enjoyed lush grounds, a beautifully preserved country house and a break for scone and clotted cream. We particularly enjoyed the eclectic displays in the upstairs rooms; stories about how the mansion has been preserved and... More

It was our first visit and we had a lovely time. The house is full of history, beautiful old furniture and the details are just lovely to look at. Our little one enjoyed the mirrors and dungeons. There weren't many activities in the pirate adventure but what was there was enjoyed. Very clean and friendly staff. Our little one thought... More

Dry zorbing and zip wire good. Good deals online. Rides good in the pirate park but needs a bit of updating. Showers are good, toilets clean and big pitches. Security at night so very safe. Pizzas are amazing in Gracey's Bar. Overall, the place could do with investment as it's getting a bit dated.

Went to the Westport house on the weekend, was raining, most things were closed, we thought we would take our boys to an indoor soft play area, the one on site is called the Pirates den, I would warn any parent NOT to go, it is up a flight of stairs, not great when you have a pram, after struggling...

We paid a family rate of €60 and in addition had to pay for the zorbs and zip wire bringing our total to €114! That's before even buying an ice cream for the kids. We were not told that the log flume (one of the main attractions) was out of order. It's not worth the money at all. On the... More

The park is well suited for younger children, under 6 i would say, although the older ones enjoyed the rides too. The addition of zorbing and zip wires is better for those 8-12+ but this is a little on the expensive side although well worth it to see the look on their faces.
