Hotels and spas

Westport is renowned for its amazing hotels, each one offering its own unique atmosphere and welcoming accommodation. Westport has a wide variety of hotels with scenic views and is surrounded by the beautiful nature of Westport and Clew Bay.

Of course, hotels mean spas, and we are blessed with a fabulous choice of pampering palaces that are perfect for a spa weekend away with the girls – sure no wonder we all look so relaxed and happy!

If a trip to a hotel always means a massage, you’re in luck. Many of the spas also have thermal suites with steam rooms, saunas and more where you can spend a serene morning or afternoon after enjoying a spa treatment to help you relax and unwind.

Check out the treatment packages at the Westport Woods Hotel’s Beech Spa; Westport Plaza’s Spa Sula; Knockranny House Hotel’s Spa Salveo; Hotel Westport’s Senses Spa; or Spa Veda at the Westport Coast Hotel.

Those who like to stretch, and chill should check out the new dedicated yoga studio, Yoga Root, located in a beautifully restored 18th-century mill on Westport's waterfront.

Foodie Favourites

Westport takes its food scene to another level offering a wide variety of cuisines as diverse as the landscape it lies on. Allowing visitors, a delight of both Irish specialties and diverse cuisines and experiences. Westport restaurants range from gastro bars to pizzerias and bistros.

Some of the local favorites include Coveys Gastrobar which is a lovely New York Italian inspired restaurant that serves delicious food and drink. Servd is another foodie favourite loved for its casual contemporary dining. For brunch with the girls, you can visit The Creel which lies alongside the amazing scenery of Westport Quay and offers a very tasty breakfast, brunch, and lunch menu.

Pubs and nightlife

Whether your ideal night out is a quiet pint by a crackling fire, a hot whiskey and a trad session, a nice merlot in a wine bar, or a multicoloured cocktail and a spirited dance-floor, we have it all. Everywhere is within walking distance, so it’s easy to stroll around the town at your leisure, drifting from one place to the next or just soaking up the friendly atmosphere.

If you’d like to catch a show, don’t forget to check out what’s on in Westport Town Hall Theatre, while pubs like Matt Molloy’s, McGing’s and Cobbler's often have live acts.

Kissed by the Atlantic and hugged by a stunning landscape, Westport has so much to offer for anyone who loves to be in nature and the great outdoors.

Conquer Croagh Patrick, stroll along our sandy beaches, surf our waves, forage in our forests, fish our seas, ramble along our boreens and over our hills, be amazed by our wildlife and enchanted by our wildflowers. Discover the road less travelled and delve into ‘hidden Westport’, from scenic drives through jaw-dropping landscapes to out-of-the-way picnic spots and lesser-known beaches.


We don’t have the major high-street stores here in Westport. Nope, we’re all about cherishing the small, the local, the boutique and unique. Behind our colourful shopfronts, you’ll find local shopkeepers, bakers, artists, producers and craftspeople offering everything from stunning fabrics, stylish clothes and beautiful jewellery to hand-picked antiques, traditional crafts and contemporary art.

If you’re here on a Thursday morning, be sure to get a real slice of local community life and pick up a few treats at the Westport Country Market in the old Railway Hotel. Here, locals sell a variety of wares, including handmade soaps, local cheeses, hand-cut flowers, home-baked cakes, organic veg, fresh bread, tempting sauces and lots more!
