“Everything you'd want from a B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

First class bed and breakfast. A lovely, tastefully-decorated house, impeccably clean, with comfortable rooms, all with wi-fi, and a really good breakfast with plenty of choice, way ahead of the vast majority of B&Bs. I stayed two nights and would like to have stayed longer. It's a great base for the Westport to Achill cycle route (the Greenway), for climbing Croagh Patrick, taking a trip to Clare Island, and for driving (or cycling) the beautiful lonely road through the mountains to Leenane via Louisburgh. In a quiet location away from the centre of town (about a 15 minute walk). Discovered it quite by chance, and will certainly stay here again next time I'm in the area.

We luckily chose this B&B for a family re-union of 6 adults and 5 kids. Our rooms, 2 Family and a twin were comfortably, cosy and fresh, an inexpensive mini bar held chocolates, cokes and water. A nearby shop was ideal for purchasing for picnics. What was really nice was our fresh breakfast cooked to order every morning. Freshly squeezed OJ and excellent quality cereals and breads/danish were delicious. Pat kindly offered our family group the use of a lovely sitting room to watch the masters. All in all our stay was delightful and we shall definitely be back. We recommend without hesitation. Thank you Pat & staff of Boffin Lodge. We appreciate your care of us.

Stayed at the Boffin Lodge with our Irish cousins for three days. Booked the family suite which was perfect for us and our two kids 10 and 13. The place was reasonably priced, nicely furnished and spotless. The breakfasts were to order and terrific! Pride in ownership was present in every detail. My cousins have made a great find for their frequent visits to Westport. While there, be sure to visit Westport House for its history and kids attractions. Adults should stop into Matt Molloy's for some traditional Irish music. You might be lucky enough (like we were) to catch Matt, one of the Chieftains, in the back room joining in the session. We'll be back, God willin'!

We had an amazing stay in this lovely place. The room was great, with lots of space and really clean. The bathroom has a big shower -which easilly fits two persons- with a steam bath. The stuff took great care of us, The breakfast is very tasty and you can have a variety of freshly prepared goodies. We absolutely loved it there and would definitely recommend this place!!

We stayed 5 nights in April 2014 - attending a wedding in Westport. Boffin Lodge is a purpose built B & B, Pat is a great and very thoughtful host, left us a note in case we arrived early! He showed us round and made sure we were settled. The room was spotless and the beds were so comfy - firm, which is just what we prefer. Wifi access everywhere - even in the en suite :-) Fresh milk in the room fridge every day for our tea. The breakfasts were wonderful - more choice than you could possibly need - and the fresh soda bread was the best! We went on two of the recommended half day self-drive tours from the Boffin Lodge info pack - excellent days out. The Helm was recommended for dinner and lived up to its reputation. I would absolutely recommend Boffin Lodge and hope to go back to visit co Mayo soon.

Room Tip: We had room 3 on the ground floor - included a double and a single bed and it had no adjoining bedro...

Exactly what we were hoping for, the facilities were clean and bright, the proprietors friendly and helpful, the breakfasts delicious and as much as you can eat. Wireless broadband was a big plus too.

At this price level, great value for money, and if you are looking for contemporary decor, what are you doing in Westport?

Would happily return, and probably will.
