Situated on the south-east corner of Clew Bay, Westport is a picturesque town with a rich history and a vibrant cultural scene. It's easy to see why it snagged the title of the Best Place to Live in Ireland in 2012, and why it's so beloved by locals and travellers alike. The Irish Tidy Towns Competition has crowned it the winner three times, a testament to the town's charm and its resident's civic pride.

Georgian grandeur infuses the town centre, where tree-lined promenades and stone bridges paint a picture of an Ireland of yesteryear. Westport takes its name from a 16th-century castle, Cathair na Mart, belonging to the Ó Máille clan. Today, the village's history is very much alive, seen in the splendid Westport House, built in the 1730s near the original castle site.

Renowned for its striking natural beauty, energetic pub scene and variety of blue flag beaches, Westport is also the gateway to the iconic Croagh Patrick mountain, a significant pilgrimage site. When you've had your fill of outdoor pursuits, relax in one of the town's cosy pubs and high-quality restaurants, or explore the four historic local churches, having a range of denomination from Pentecostal to Anglican. You could even take part in the vibrant festivals hosted throughout the year.

When to visit Westport

Westport is a town for all seasons; however, the warmest months of June, July, and August offer the best conditions for exploring this coastal jewel. With an average daily high temperature of around 19.2°C in late July, it's the perfect time to soak in the vibrant atmosphere, whether on the sandy beaches or atop Croagh Patrick. If you're chasing drier days, consider scheduling your visit in June, September, or March.
