Westport and the Wild Atlantic Way

Post by In1 Solutions on Blog

South of Newport and along the Wild Atlantic Way, you are in for a treat when you visit Westport.

Westport is quaint and picturesque with its tree-lined promenade along the Carrow Beg river. But it also enjoys a thriving tourist trade and vibrant nightlife. So, it’s a great place to enjoy a meal and a pint whilst listening live to the best of local musical talent.

History

Westport is a designated heritage town and boasts its own unique charm. Its present location was planned and designed by the Browne family over 200 years ago but the area is rich in history that dates back to the rule of the Umaill clan. The great Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley, was the most famous descendant of the family and she ruled Clew Bay and the surrounding seas in the 1500s.

The Quay is close to the town and, beyond that, blue flag beaches and, of course, Croagh Patrick. Make sure you pay a visit to Westport House on the way, though. Not only is it a fine, stately home but also a Pirate Adventure Park! Guaranteed a family fun day out.

Twin Trees Hotel Offers

Whether is a romantic break or activity holiday for all of the family, Twin Trees Hotel will have an offer for you. It is the perfect base to visit Westport and its surrounding area, less than a hour’s drive away.
