The Setting and Story Behind It
Set on a 400 acre estate in the heart of the heritage town of Westport, the House is amazingly still privately owned by the Browne Family who built it in 1730. Unlike many modernised historic homes, it still retains all the original character and charm allowing you to go back in time to the 18th Century. We can happily provide a brief talk or guided tour as part of your event to give your guests a “sense of place”. The tour tells of 400 years of Irish history through the eyes of one Irish aristocratic family as well as their more modern and pioneering efforts since opening to the public in 1960 to save one of Ireland’s national treasures.
With the Browne Family at the helm, the team at Westport House puts all of its energy and professionalism into making sure that every one of our clients enjoys a magnificent experience. Join us for a meeting, stay for lunch or dinner. Or simply visit us for team building.
“We arrived on a beautiful evening in September an international group of ladies and gentlemen. The advance reservation was made and the people at Westport House ensured that all was in place for an elegant evening, the grounds are beautiful, the House authentic and the staff genuinely friendly and attentive. With candles lit in the entrance area and a large open fire, the champagne was flowing and guests mingling, then to be called into dinner (there were 50 of us). You feel like you are entering a very special stately home and you are, the food is exceptional …Clare Island organic Salmon is a must on any menu, the best I have ever had! After dinner the guests strolled around the house and into the Dungeon, Joan our hostess was on hand explaining the history of the House and the guests lapped up her insight and general good humour. Westport House is not stuffy and intimidating…quite the opposite … It is a hidden gem in a beautiful part of Ireland, welcoming and graceful in every way. I was there with 2 groups this year and hope to be back soon again….thanks to all in Westport House.”
“Genuinely, myself and Adrian can’t thank you enough for all of your help and support. I definitely think you went above and beyond expectations. I work in an agency that runs events for clients like Coca-Cola, Sky, Rolls Royce amongst others, who can often be incredibly demanding, and I don’t think any one of them would have expected the level of service that you gave us. So thank you – it seems so mediocre, but thank you.”
