Kissed by the waves of the Atlantic and hugged by the muscles of mighty mountains, Westport is a veritable smorgasbord of activities for lovers of the outdoors. Seriously, it’s amazing. From scaling sacred mountains to paddle boarding through sea caves, galloping like Legolas across the sand or swimming in crystal clear waters, there’s something for every thrill-seeker on the wild craggs and in the windy crannies of Westport.
Not a thrill-seeker & happier on the massage table than dangling from a cliff face. It’s all good, we’ve got you covered.
Conquer the mountain(s)
St. Patrick gave us lots of things - Catholicism, a wonderful lack of snakes, and most importantly, a bank holiday. It’s no wonder then, that Westport’s perfectly triangular mountain is named in his honour. This hike is not only one of the most exciting things to do in westport but it is also one of the best tourist attractions in Ireland.
If conquering the Croagh Patrick, or the Reek, as it’s locally known, is too tame for you, there are plenty of other hikes and trails that will test your mettle. Take your pick of Nephin Beg, Mweelrea, Slievemore, Diamond Hill, Croaghaun…the list is endless.
