Take in a show in Westport
Westport is renowned for its hospitality and entertainment, and two regular live shows – The Legend of Gráinne Mhaol and The Magic Parlour – add to your options for a great night of song, dance, music, storytelling and magic in the town.
Enjoy an evening of storytelling, magic and award-winning dining at Hotel Westport
The Magic Parlour features storytelling, magic and award-winning food.
Locals and tourists alike are invited to dine in the intimate setting of a homely parlour where host, Dan O’Donoghue will enthral his guests with Victorian ghost stories, spellbinding magic tricks and tales from the West of Ireland.
It is designed to be a relaxed evening of dining where the entertainment happens between the courses and therefore doesn’t spoil the diners’ appreciation of the award-winning food. Hotel Westport has recently been awarded the AA Rosette for Culinary Excellence.
The Legend of Gráinne Mhaol returns
The superb summer music show ‘The Legend of Gráinne Mhaol’ returns to Hotel Westport for its fourth season this summer with a star studded line up of musicians, singers and dancers from all over the West of Ireland.
Based on the real-life story of the legendary Irish Pirate Queen Grace O’Malley or Gráinne Mhaol this live show runs every Monday and Wednesday night from June to September at Hotel Westport. Lord of the Dance fiddle player Cora Smyth headlines the show with renowned balladeers James Kilbane and Jenny Mulvey, Latino dancer Pollyanna Guedes, All-Ireland champion box player Darragh Healy and Ireland’s most gifted Sean Nós dancers Ashline and Micheal Cunningham and Liam Scanlon all on board for this magical and mythical voyage into Mayo.
The Gráinne Mhaol traditional music show is full of energy and enthusiasm and keeps audiences of all ages gripped from start to finish as it blends the old and the new; the contemporary and the ancient, the Sean Nós dancing against the more modern steps and styles of Irish Dancing.
