Starting out life as a family home and later as a Guesthouse, Westport coastal lodge has catered for guests to this region for almost thirty years. The elevated views over Clew bay and the privacy of the mature gardens nurtured for many years meant the property was an obvious choice for its new owners to bring it back to life and an extensive refurbishment took place in 2019.

Best Things To Do & Days Out In Westport with Kids
"We really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a beautiful location only 5/6 miles from Westport. The house itself has all mod cons and a lovely log fire. All bedrooms and en-suites bathrooms are so well finished and equipped. The owner, Conor, who lives very close by could not have been nicer or more helpful. I would strongly recommend the house to anyone seeking a modern well equipped quiet, peaceful getaway."
"Stayed with a group of friends for a reunion. The house is finished very tastefully and met all of our needs. The unexpected extras such as the fresh bread and log fire on arrival were lovely welcoming touches. The house had all mod cons required for us to cook. The house was spotlessly clean and all guests commented on the comfort of the beds. Despite being a large group the house did not feel small. I would highly recommend the house and hope to visit again in the not too distant future."
"We had a fantastic stay for New Year’s Eve. House caters for large numbers. All rooms are spacious & furnished to an extremely high-level. Fantastic coastal views from the kitchen & main living room areas. Local taxi-service organised at short notice when required. Could not recommend highly enough."
