For the second year in a row, Hotel Westport has been voted one of Ireland’s top family-friendly hotels. Readers of Primary Times, the largest free family magazine and website in Ireland, voiced their views on the country’s most family-friendly firms and scored their favourites on customer service, facilities, choice and value for money.
The results are these unique awards, based on the votes of more than 2,000 people, provide a vital snapshot of what’s tops with families in a harsh economic climate – and give the worthy winners a well-deserved round of applause.
