Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great big interpretive center with helpful staff. Cafe closed for winter . Nice walks on solid paths and good views as you go up the hills.

    Wow. What a statement this memorial makes. About the people who died here in Ireland during the famine and the people who risked everything to travel to a new world. It’s set at the base of Croagh Patrick as well. Worth a visit.

    We only stopped by here briefly on route home after a day out on the greenway but the exhibition was small but interesting and the kids were very interested by the outdoor classroom where the staff showed them creatures from a recent pond dipping session, along with bones and stuffed/preserved animals to view magnified. We missed the children’s activity session but I think if you plan to go it’s worth checking if they have anything on at a particular time.

    One side of the strand is the Atlantic, the other side a secluded bay with crystal clear water. If you walk along the ridge not only are you destroying the sand dunes you are missing the two different microclimates.

    Was spending Christmas in a Westport hotel. Went to Church Christmas morning. An excellent service. The chap singing during communion was tremendous. Would have preferred to have gone on Christmas eve but could not find out anywhere the times of any services - not the hotel, not the website, not Google - a shame that service times could not be made known. Strangers also wish to attend Church services.

    Right in the middle of town(octagon). We stayed at the Wyatt so it was right out their front entrance. Be careful of the traffic.

    We were glad to be able to visit this historic site and especially appreciated the chance to step inside a round tower, However, we would encourage putting an historic marker in place to enhance the experience of visitors. A sign to direct visitors to the parking lot would also be welcome. We would have rated this site at the 5 star level if this signage was in place.

    We cannot praise the bar staff enough here!!!We were here tonight (17th Jan), 3 girls and the man and woman behind the bar unfortunately I didn’t catch their names were so lovely to us all evening. The weather was so bad we couldn’t get a taxi back to our hotel and even rang our hotel who couldn’t sort us a taxi. The lovely bar staff tried so hard for us and thankfully they got us one. Without them we would’ve been walking for ages in the dark in the ice and snow. We are so thankful :)) Lovely love music and atmosphere in the pub and great service!

    Excellent service and easy to use website with Apple/Google pay. The real touch of class was that my orders were gift wrapped and ready to go!

    Best pub in Westport, possibly Ireland. Friendly attentive bartenders, friendliest people in town with the best beer! Anthony the proprietor makes you feel welcome and at home. A must do pub when in Ireland!
