Great location, always welcoming and busy at weekends, food is of a good standard and rooms are adequate and warm, can get too warm so turn the heating down if you like a cool room. The WiFi works ok although mobile phone reception can be a bit flaky.

We were delighted when we managed to get a cancellation to spend Easter Sunday in The Helm as we had a wonderful stay there 2 years ago. After spending the morning climbing Croagh Patrick we arrived at The Helm to check in. Even though the bar was very busy it only took a few minutes to check in and be...

We booked at the last minute and when we arrived they still didn't see the reservation on the computer but they didn't let it interfere with our check in process that is done in the Bar! We booked a one bedroom apartment but they gave us for the same price a two bedroom apartment which was huge, clean and comfortable....

They were spotless and had everything we could have needed to make us comfortable!The value for money was amazing with fabulous breakfast in the helm bar! With two small toddlers we were made most welcome! Cant recommend this place enough!

We stayed here on a wed night for one night! The helm apartments are just so cosy, warm, modern & clean. It was perfect! We then went down for an evening meal! To say the portion size was huge is an understatement!! Amazing food with a great lively atmosphere, the place was buzzing with people & i love the design...

We had a great weekend in Westport. Pubs, restaurants and people were so friendly and went out of their way to help lost looking strangers! David Coyne was particularly attentive in the Helm Pub and Restaurant. Very friendly. Keep up the attention to detail.👍

We have just arrived back from Westport where we stayed at The Helm. Where do I begin ... the apartments are clean and well equipped, the staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is just fabulous and plentiful. Would thoroughly recommend.

The apartment was No.1, which was a three bedroomed, one ensuite and kitchen diner overlooking the quay and across to the fields beyond. The apartment was spotless and well equipped and furnished comfortably. The apartments are above the Helm, which is a truly great place, offering easy access to Westport Quay and Westport town. The evening meal and breakfast was...
