“Westport Wonderful”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our first B and B in Ireland, and how lucky we were! Ena greeted us with tea and scones, and we felt at home from the start. Our room was lovely and the house itself in perfect order, with views from the dining room over the Irish countryside, and a warm fire in the guest sitting room while we read or watched football. The location is perfect, in the country but close to everything. We walked to town and along the Greenway, seeing a good number of birds along the way, always a plus, as we are birders. This is a place to which we will definitely return!

My friend and I stayed at Lurgan House while spending a night in Westport in March, 2013. Ena, one of the owners was kind enough to pick us up from the bus stop in town when we first arrived. We were delighted to be greeted with afternoon tea when we got to the house, and Ena gave us a great overview of the walking trails and sights in the area, as well as recommendations on where to eat that night. There were no issues around curfew (as there might be at some B&Bs), which suited us as we were meeting up with friends in town that night. Breakfast was simple fare, but very much satisfying enough to sustain us for a few hours. Our bus didn't leave until the afternoon and the owners were very accommodating about letting us hang around for a little while longer and then gave us a lift back into town. Overall, had a very enjoyable and comfortable experience at Lurgan House and would recommend it to anyone staying in Westport!

At Lurgan House we were greeted with a genuine family welcome who exceeded our expectations in every aspect during our stay.

A friend and I stayed here when travelling around Ireland and our stay was by far the most comfortable of our trip. We climbed to the top of Croagh Patrick, only moments away from the B&B and walked the short distance into Westport to visit the traditional local pubs. Ena's full Irish breakfast along with beautiful homemade bread and scones set us up for for the day ahead the next day.

Ena, Ger and the whole of the Scahill family made us feel exceptionally welcome during our stay and we certainly will be returning in the near future.

The place is spotless. Very clean and tidy. The owners are lovely - we had great chats with them. We took the detached house, and had some of our best breakfasts outside which has a view on Croagh Patrick. This B&B made our trip to Westport and I'm definitely going back to it when I visit next year. I can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: I highly recommend the detached house if you're a group/family. The rate is very reasonable and...

Have been terribly remiss in not submitting a review sooner. Had not been to Ireland in several years, and found a deal on Travel Zoo. The only hesitation we had was using vouchers for the B&B portions of the trip. One of the choices was Lurgan House, and are we glad they were on the list. What a fantastic experience. Ena and her husband were wonderful and welcoming.
Ena was so sociable and a wonderful hostess. Our grandson had just had his tonsils out in the States, and Ena even offered to let us call to check on him. We declined her kind offer, since we had our i-pad and could e-mail our daughter. We had read about Ena's famous scones, and were not disappointed. The location is perfect. There is a greenway a few minutes from the house which lets you walk into town without staying on the main roads. We had a room in the back of the house which had a lovely view. The room was immaculate and the bed very comfortable. Our only regret is that we were not able to stay longer at Lurgan House.
I really cannot say enough for this wonderful B&B. I wish we could go back again soon.

Ena & her husband were very welcoming and made us feel at home. they would light the fire place for us in the evenings which we enjoyed immensely after a long day if hiking. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The rooms were clean and comfortable and location was great - very peaceful.

An amazing welcome given to two wayward travellers who showed up at the door looking for lodgings for the night!
We were given the 'cabin' outback and it was actually like our own little house with a kitchen and living area and two bedrooms! It was beautiful and Gerard and Ina (owners) too great care to welcome us! It was a great experience and a genuine Irish welcome.
It is a short walk from Westport town, about 15 minutes, though the road is a bit busy, so best not to walk back by night without a lamp or high-vis jacket.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!
