So Much to Do
Well, they would say it, wouldn’t they; “Westport is probably the best town in Ireland to take a holiday or a weekend break”. And you know what? They are not wrong.
Squatting on the tree lined river Carrowbeg, this beautiful little town has got everything you’d want for a great Hen party and more. Activities to suit the manic outdoor pursuit girls, like horse riding on the beaches or taking a trail or riding up mountain paths. Try green way cycling, blue flag beaches or a trip to the award winning leisure centre.
So you’d prefer to wander around the streets? Gorgeous shop fronts with hanging baskets of flowers showing off the town in all its glory. Retail therapy? Yup, you’re in the right spot. Little boutiques, craft shops, bread and chocolate shops and big brand units. Westport is a mixture of the traditional and cosmopolitan when it comes to shopping experiences.
Festivals Festivals Festivals
As for events and distractions, well, these folk are well ahead of the curve. Trad music festivals, theatres. Add in the Westport food and craft market every Saturday and the Westport country markets on Thursdays and you’d be only scratching the surface.
If as claimed that Katie Taylor is pound for pound the best female boxer in the world then Westport is pound for pound the best pub town on the planet. Stacks of amazing pubs, gastro pubs, trad music pubs, singing pubs, and mighty Craic pubs;
