Our CIE tour guide advised us to purchase tickets for the Weds night show as soon as we could as it always sold out. Indeed, the start of the show was delayed as they brought in extra chairs for some of the locals. The show has wonderful dancing and the local celebrity singers attract a large local crowd.
The hotel location is excellent, adjacent ot the park of Westport House and near the town and river walk.
We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel. I had an unusual starter with a putag of black pudding that was superb. The black pudding tasted like a rich and wonderful Xmas pudding.
The bathroom was very nice except that the door swings the wrong way so that it blocks the sink and toilet rather than swinging towards the shower. The shower is excellent -- a very large stall shower.
We are CPAP users, so we need access to an electrical outlet. Many of the hotels in Dublin plug the light fixtures and alarm clock into an unusual socket that cannot be used by any of the standard converters, so in many cases we had to use the extension cord we travel with and make full use of the length of the cords attached to the CPAP power units. The electrical outlets at the Hotel Westport as at several of the other hotels are on the opposite side of the room from the beds.
My husband blew out the power plugs when he turned on the hotel hair dryer, but they came immediately to fix it.
