Never normally write reviews but I thought I'd do so on this occasion as the place deserves one. The place offers excellent value for anyone staying in Westport. Rooms are spacious and are en suite. Breakfast is great and the landlady is very hospitable. You can't go wrong.

Hi myself and 2 mates stayed for 2 nights at McCarthys on our 60th birthday trip around Ireland
We arrived on Celtic Rugby Final day and the local team was playing so the place was packed but no problem to Geraldine as she gave us the upstairs apartment and we joined the locals in the bar to watch the rugby and the fine food after the game was part of the hospitality .Unfortunately Mayo lost but we had 2great nights at McCarthys and Geraldine's fine breakfast (included in reasonable room rate ) keep us going the whole day
Would have liked to stay longer

We were in Westport with a family group of 15 and we recently stayed at McCarthy's. We were very pleased. The location is perfect with the pub right next door. There is a fish and chip shop (excellent) across the street and the town centre is very close. You are very near but not directly in the busier parts of Westport. Great base for checking out all that the Westport area has to offer. Breakfast is wonderful, the rooms are spacious and very clean and anything that you need to make your visit perfect can be provided or suggested by Ger. She is a fabulous hostess.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Westport look no further than McCarthy's Lodge!
The location is perfect, the rooms are big and very clean, the welcome is warm and the pints are delicious. McCarthy's lodge is an ideal base for a hike up Croagh Patrick, surfing on Carrownuiskey beach and exploring Clew Bay.
September 2012 was my second visit to McCarthy's Lodge and I can't fault it on either occasion.
We'll be back.
Thanks Ger!

Lovely people. Very affordable accommodation and excellent value for money, surpassing expectations. Rooms very well facilitated and very well serviced. Ideal location, in terms of the friendly, cosy pup next door to the accommodation and town centre a small street away. If booking in as a couple, or for a quiet stay, you might just check first whether any group parties are staying (we were the party, and were very well behaved!). Have stayed in other more expensive accommodation in Westport and McCarthy's in the only place I would very happily come back to.

extrememly friendly, helpful and entertaining staff that are willing to go out of their way to accommodate you. As soon as we arrived, we knew that everything would be grand in terms of accommodation. The rooms were spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. We were there for two nights and it has a great location. Highly recommend staying here, it will make your stay in Westport even more fun.

What a great town Westport is. Full of life and fun.
I also can't say enough about McCarthy's. Plenty of rooms. All spotless and well taken care of.
Very comfortable. The bar has a good pint and friendly staff
Geraldine was so accommodating and looked after us well
.
We stayed there 2 nights, and I'll definitely look for accommodation at McCarthys on my next visit to Westport.

A big thumbs up from me
