What they say
a lot of fun, full of history
The house is beautiful inside and out. The tour was a lot of fun, full of history. I learned a lot about the history of Westport and Ireland. The rooms were all nicely furnished, and we could walk around the home after the tour.
Would highly recommend this tour
A most enjoyable house tour with our tour guide. They were so pleasant and most informative about the house itself and it's occupants. Would highly recommend this tour
Excellent venue, well worth a visit
A very enjoyable experience. We were caught in a heavy rain shower on the way to the house and we were met at the gate by very kind staff with umbrellas and they had us stand by the open fire at the entrance to the house to warm up before the tour. Mary, our tour guide, was clearly knowledgeable on the history of the house and the families that lived there. Her enthusiasm for the house was evident and made the tour that bit more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour if you are in westport or the surrounding areas.
Well worth the visit
John, house guide gave a wonderfully informative and interesting guide to Westport House. I learnt so much about the house, family and social, economic and political history of the area. Great introduction to Westport.
Highly recommend the guide as you gain an intimate and thrilling insight into the house and the ongoing restoration programme.
Well worth the visit,

Among the key areas of work that will be supported by Fáilte Ireland and in partnership with acclaimed landscape designer Mary Reynolds, Westport Estate will be creating a uniquely Irish re-wilded landscape experience connecting earth with Irish heritage. The restoration of Westport House and the reimagining of its 300-year history will also be a strong feature.
