Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2014

What a super hotel. Never stayed here before but from the moment I walked it it had a good feel to it. The receptionist was excellent. Very efficient and very friendly. The room was clean, warm and spacious with all one could need, including a very comfy bed. The bar and restaurant staff were also excellent. Very helpful and friendly. Really could not have been better. We ate in the bistro where the food was absolutely delicious. In fact we ate there on both nights because we had such a good experience on the first night. Never had such an overall good experience in a hotel and despite the dreadful weather we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Thanks to all the staff for a 'home from home' (but with even better food) and for the excellent service and great welcome.

For you doubters out there...I have absolutely no connection to the hotel or anyone in it apart from this , our first, but not last, stay.

We stayed for two nights. The location of Castlecourt is great as it is only a short stroll into town. The room was large, the shower beautifully hot and breakfast buffet had a large selection to choose from.

Westport is such a lovely old style Irish charm.

Would definitely return.

We stayed in the Castlecourt for the past 3 nights in one of the family rooms, our family includes Daddy, Mammy & 3 kids (7, 2 & 3 months), brilliant hotel, really well set up for families and incredible value. Didier, a French man that has been working in the hotel since he arrived in Westport 25 years ago, is the restaurant manager and is an absolute gent. Thank you, we will be back!

When you've driven for several hours without a break, it's getting late and you haven't got a room for the night the relief at finally getting a place to rest your head is immense.
My wife and I had intended to stay in the Galway area but bad planning meant we were unable to get our preferred accommodation so it was back up North to a place we had stayed before - Westport and the Castlecourt hotel to be precise.
It was late and with fingers crossed we went to the reception to be met by a smiling lady who, after checking, gave us the figurative thumbs-up for one of the last rooms in the house. She even gave us a discount which we hadn't asked for (same rate as a coach party who had just booked in before us).
The ensuing drinks taken in the courtyard on a balmy summer's evening followed by a delicious meal afterwards in the restaurant was adequate compensation for the disappointment of Galway, but with hindsight we were mighty glad things worked out the way they did.
Tired but still intent on making an evening of it we went into the bar where residents and visitors were dancing to a group whose music wouldn't have made the top ten, but who, nevertheless, fulfilled a purpose.
There, we met visitors from America who were in Westport for a family re-union and such was the numbers involved that the local press were present to record the occasion.
Having stayed in the Castlecourt before we knew what to expect especially at breakfast and we weren't disappointed. The waitress forgot to add sausages to the meal, and offered profuse apologies. She then made a quick trip back to the kitchen and returned with four 'bangers' to more than make up for her very minor transgression.
Westport is a beautiful town with good hotels and the Castlecourt is up there with the best. It offers good food, excellent hospitality, clean and spacious rooms, and ample car parking space not to mention smiling and helpful staff. Thoroughly recommend this hotel and we will be back.

Room Tip: You can only take what you get if you're a late 'booker', but always ask for a room with...

We visited the hotel on 1st & 2nd December as a group of 15 and had a wonderful stay,on Sunday we had a fabulous dinner which was part of the package. The rooms were very comfortable, spotlessly clean. I cannot speak highly enough of how friendly all the staff were from the booking and arrangements for a large group, and looking after us all while there. It was our second visit as a group and won't be our last.
