Great location right in town. Room was clean and modern. Bathroom was gorgeous. Free wifi in the lobby. Breakfast was delicious with a lot of selection (but I'd skip the french toast). Staff was super friendly and was diligent in getting a sewing kit delivered to my room to mend my ripped pants.

I've fallen in love with Westport and the Clew Bay Hotel.

I picked up one of the specials featured on their website - 2 nights, 2 breakfasts, 1 three-course dinner, 1 bagged lunch and a lift to and from Croagh Patrick. It was a very nice "package" for experiencing Westport.

I stayed here with a group of friends recently and i would
highly recomend this hotel, the staff are very friendly and the service was great. The food and drinks were top quality.
The hotel is in a great location within the town and close to all the local amenities. I am looking forward to returning to westport again and also the clew bay hotel.

We stayed for a friday, saturday, sunday break with three young children in mid july and ended up staying an extra night too. The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant - nothing was a bother for them. The hotel is very modern and clean. The food in the restaurant was absolutely amazing (even with a small kids play area which helps to make dining a pleasure for everyone). Breakfast each morning was top class too - friendly, fast, efficient and very good quality. We also had access each day to the leisure centre behind the hotel - great pool and other facilities here too. Overall 10 out out of 10 -couldn't fault this hotel in anyway and we've stayed in quite a few over the years. We would definitely come back again - they even gave us a one night voucher for a winter break when we were checking out!!

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights, the location was excellent and the hotel very clean with polite staff. The room we were given was small and very stuffy there was some sort of noisy fan unit outside our window and also the laundry room across the way, making difficult to sleep. On the second night on request we were moved to a quieter more spacious room. The food in the restaurant Maddens Bistro was excellent, however the bar really lacked atmosphere.

I stay at this hotel often and have never had cause for complaint. It is in the heart of a fibrant little town, full of Irish hospitality and music, ideally situated for exploring this part of the west coast. The food is really good and the staff exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious, pleasantly decorated and comfortable. This hotel is definitely on a par with the best in the area.

This really is a gem of a hotel. The staff were exceptionally helpful and charming. Breakfast was an absolute feast and I can highly recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, which were as good as I have ever tasted anywhere. Westport itself is lovely and a must see town on any visit to Ireland.

Breakfast was great both mornings, and till 10.30 on sundays so not too early. hotel staff were excellent, and we even left tickets in the room which they went ut of the way to help us ringing us with the numbers on the tickets so we could get them re-issuedat the ticketmaster at the concert. Excellent service from them, grea stay.
