As a primarily outdoor attraction, we recommend that you plan appropriately - this may mean sun hats, sun screen, umbrellas and rain gear all on the same day! You can review the weather forecast on the Met Eireann site to plan for your visit.
Please note that management cannot accept responsibility for temporary unavailability of attractions due to circumstances beyond their control - ALL attractions are normally available - please call 098 27766 to check before visiting or upon arrival at the ticket office.
Please note that while buggies are highly recommended for use in the extensive gardens, Pirate Adventure Park and campsite, they are unfortunately not permitted in Westport House in an effort to preserve the antique parquet floors. You may park your buggy inside in the ante-library while you tour the House. You might like to bring your own baby carrier or please feel free to borrow one of ours while you’re in the House.
