“Interesting History of Grace O'Malley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

I enjoyed that it was a quiet time of year, as I enjoyed walking around the grounds, through the house and taking the time to read about the family tree and what each family line stood for to present day. I was a little disappointed that the kitchen was closed, as I would have loved to see where all the goodies were made. In efforts to preserve the house, the staircase was being worked on, but that didn't seem to interrupt a small flow of visitors. The house continuously needs work where the walls are cracking and visitable wear is occuring. Please visit this site and contribute to the preservation efforts. It really is beautiful!

“Beautiful mansion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

An organized tour of the Westport House was great and educational. Our tour guide, Mary, was delightful and knowledgeable about the inhabitants of this historic home. Didn't have much time to see the gardens but even in October there were blooming flowers!

“westport house & gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We found Westport house very interesting. The coffe shop served a lovely scone & tes. The only disappointing thing I found was there was nothing wheat gluten free on offer so I had to stay hungry while my hubby ate a delicious scone.

Beautiful views, concerts indoors and out, Westport House has become a classy venue for adult entertainment as well as children's adventure and theme parks. Well done!
