Westport Travel Guide


Croagh Patrick one of Europe's best know places of Pilgrimage, some pilgrims climb barefoot in the memory of St. Patrick, who spent forty days and forty nights fasting on the summit more than one and a half thousand years ago. Magnificent views of Clew Bay, with an island for every day of the year, provides inspiration for many walkers and visitors throughout the year.
Westport House is one of Ireland's top Day Visitor Attractions. It is a Georgian mansion and the home of Lord Sligo and is open from April to September.
Clew Bay is a beautiful bay filled with hundreds of small islands. These are actually semi submerged drumlins from the last ice age. The road along the north end of the bay leads to Achill Island, whilst the road along the southern rim goes back to Croagh Patrick and onto Louisburgh, terminating at Roonagh where one can get a ferry to Clare Island.
