Just returned from a wonderful trip to Westport and a great stay at McCarthy's Lodge. The room was large, clean and cozy. Geraldine and Michael were extremly helpful from cooking an awesome breakfast, answering my questions about "things to do", printing off my boarding pass, helping get me to the airport at a very early hour and pouring some great...

I have stayed in Westport many times before but this was my first time to stay in McCarthy’s and I will definitely book again the next time I travel west. Three of us shared a room and it was very clean bright and comfortable at the top of the house. Breakfast was freshly prepared and very good. Geraldine manages the...

It was my first time in Westport, Ireland. I shared a room with my sister, it was very clean and felt like a home. The owners and workers are very friendly, and feel almost like family. We were planning to stay only for two nights, but ended up staying three we loved it so much! McCarthy's is a great B&B,...

We had an all-around lovely time in Westport, from the minute we stepped out of our car until the minute we drove off. McCarthy's is a perfect place to explore the town, and has a lovely bar (with THE BEST Irish coffees we've ever tasted) and a warm and welcoming fireplace to warm up from the winter chill. The B&B...

With old pubs closing fast enough in Westport (all this marketing is sanitising the town), McCarthy's remains as a genuine hostelry that didn't come out of a Tourist Board brochure. It serves beer and porter and shorts, and sometimes there's a music session. Some nights are better that others but if you want consistency go to a hotel and listen...

Have stayed at this excellent b b over two years and it is brilliant, sparce rooms, but a lovely host, great breakfast, a cracking bar where locals wander in with instruments and the fun begins. it is also a local meet for MCFC fans.

My husband and I stay regularly at McCarthys B & B in Westport. We travel a lot throughout Ireland and I can honestly say that McCarthys B & B is by far one of the best B & B's we have stayed in. The rooms are comfortable clean and homely. The breakfast is always freshly cooked and available at an...

Stayed for one night in early December as we could not find a hotel available. Booked it online but photos do not represent the true image of this establishment. Our room was very small with a tiny bathroom. There was an musty smell in the room as this is an old building. Condensation running down the window and the radiator...

The Lodge is in the center close to the main streets of Westport , the reception is in the pub . We were 2 in a triple room , the room was really big, therefore maybe is a bit small for three but it was very clean and cozy. Good breakfast, you can choose from a menu and the woman...

This was a nice, charming B&B as we were trekking across Connemara. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious enough and everything was quiet, although I think there were rooms above the pub and I don't know if noise would be an issue there. Breakfast was great downstairs. If pubbing is your thing all you had to...
