Not knowing much about Westport when we arrived, we were quite surprised with this lovely, small town and surrounding area.
Plougastel House, was the perfect introduction to Ireland B & B's. Walking distance to the main street was a plus. Westport has many lovely shops and some of the best restaurants we found in Ireland, including Mango's and Torrino's. Matt Malloy's Pub had some of the best music. We were impressed with the mix of ages in the pub all enjoying the music together.
There is so much to do in the surrounding area that 3 days was not enough time. Westport House and Gardens, The Westport Herritage Center, Achill Island, and the fabulous Nephin Drive were all we had time to do. All three of these were very good for photos and just wandering around.
