I stayed in The Garden Gates recently, and I can honestly say it is the best B&B I have stayed in to date. The beautiful house is situated halfway between Westport and Castlebar, and only a short drive to either town. There is a lovely driveway leading up to the house, with beautiful trees outside the house. My room (named...

The owner was very nice, friendly and helpful, they were very accommodating. It's set in a beautiful tranquil location. There is a great selection for breakfast and tailored to individuals needs, it was fresh, home cooked and really tasty! We would really recommend it.

If you are visiting Westport, this b&b is a must stay. There are very few 5 star B&B's. This must be the best. Martina and Laurence are the ideal hosts. The property was designed and built as a guest house so the rooms are large and well appointed The breakfasts are a gastronomic delight. Will definitely return. Ideal location to...

Located off the beaten path, almost midway between Westport and Castlebar, this was a delightful 2 night stay on our circuit from Dublin to Belfast to Donegal, here, then on to Doolin. Martina could not have been a nicer hostess, from her first welcome with tea to advice on where to dine and what to see. She provided excellent directions...

My husband and I spent one night in a comfortable and spacious room in mid-August. Martina is very welcoming and helpful and our room was spotless and well appointed.

We had a most enjoyable four night stay in The Garden Gates. Our room (Rose) was so large,comfortable and well decorated with a most comfortable bed. The rooms are called after flowers which is so much nicer than numbers! The bathrooms all have power showers, with lots of hot water, and fresh towels daily. We had tea and coffee facilities...
