Camping and Caravans

Now Open

Westport House Caravan and Camping Park is one of Ireland’s premier caravan and camping destinations, located in the heart of Westport by the majestic expanse of Clew Bay where pirate queen Grace O’Malley once ruled the seas.

Westport House Caravan and Camping Park is situated on the fertile grounds of Westport House Estate just a five minute drive and a 15 minute stroll from Westport town. Families, couples and hikers alike will revel in the park’s rich historical surrounds, enchanting forest walks and action-packed adventure activities and attractions.

Set against the backdrop of 18th century cut stone stables (one of the most extensive heritage farm yard buildings in Europe) and the lush canopies of lofty oaks and birch, our caravan and camping park offers guests access to a choice of spotless facilities and a safe, picturesque environment for relaxation, exploration and play.

Our FREE onsite facilities include:

  • hot showers
  • disabled showers and toilets
  • recycling
  • waste water
  • picnic and washing up areas

Dining with us? We have some great dining options right here on the estate!

If you fancy some good coffee or an ice-cream cone, pop over to the Coffee Wagon located by our Coach House.   

For some delicious casual dining right in the farmyard, Gracy’s Pizzeria & Bistro will be open from 5:00pm to 10:00pm during July and August with  a great beer garden and Westport’s original wood-fired Pizza oven.

Fancy some fine dining? Our sister property, Hotel Westport (only 1km walk away), has a brand new pop-up restaurant with a leading local restaurateur called Cian’s at Hotel Westport with plenty of physical distancing space and award-winning cuisine. Cian will be serving bar food daily, Sunday lunch as well as dinner between 6pm & 9pm. Advance reservations are advisable – please call 098 25122 or complete our Reservation Form and we’ll call you back.

We appreciate that you will have heightened concerns regarding hygiene during your visit or your stay with us and trust in cleanliness standards will be critical to you. With that in mind, we have created a programme that will deliver the highest standards of cleanliness as well as a gorgeous green experience – with social distancing – throughout the entire estate.  Please note that we have had to amend our offering to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit for all guests so please click here to find out more about the changes to our site and our Covid-19 C0-Operative post-lockdown.

Important note for families:  Please note that the Pirate Adventure Park will not re-open in 2020  – we look forward to welcoming adventurers back in 2021.  Instead, we offer reduced rates on onsite bike hire for campers – €18 for adults for a full day and €10 for children – through our partner Clew Bay Bike Hire (be sure to tell them you’re staying with us!).  Perfect for our exclusive and mostly off-road 10k loop or if you’re feeling active, why not tackle the Great Western Greenway to Achill?  You can also take a guided kayak tour with Clew Bay Bike Hire too – just call +353(0)9824818 or email them to book yourself in.  Check out our Top Things to Do in Westport in 2020 for more ideas.  We will have Disk Golf available to campers for free – upon payment of a €5 deposit per disk.

Family focused

Westport House Caravan and Camping Park offers a truly unique and enjoyable family holiday experience.

This year, unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we will not be able to offer our usual family friendly attractions to families in 2020.  As a result, the colourful outdoor playground and sand pits will be closed as will our table tennis, a recreation room with movies, games and a jukebox, and the Pirate’s Den indoor soft play area.  The Pirate Adventure Park will also remain closed in 2020. However, on the upside, we can  offer Onsite Bike Hire right on the estate with Clew Bay Bike Hire (be sure to tell them you’re staying with us!).  Perfect for our exclusive and mostly off-road 10k loop or if you’re feeling active, why not tackle the Great Western Greenway to Achill?  You can also take a guided kayak tour with Clew Bay Bike Hire too – just call +353(0)9824818 or email them to book yourself in.  Check out our Top Things to Do in Westport in 2020 for more ideas.

If you prefer to do your own thing as a family – why, that’s just fine with us too. If you’d like to take our Pirate Explorer Pack digital to go explore the estate, just ask. We hope that you’ll find our trails and maps a fun enticement to encourage the kids to head out on a walk.  

400 Acre Estate: Our Caravan & Camping Park is based on the 400 acre historic estate of Westport House with a wonderful 3.5k lopped walk, formal gardens as well as a lake, woodland and parkland setting. Gates are open 8am to 11pm for your enjoyment.  

Ireland’s Most Beautiful House: Westport House is well worth a visit with fascinating stories and stunning interiors. It is open to visitors from 10am to 6pm daily and with over 30 rooms open to the public. In fact, your visit to Westport would not be complete without seeing it. Our Campers get 25% off tickets and the next day free so be sure to stop by reception to pick this up.

When the day is done, and it’s time to turn in, sleep restfully knowing that safety and security are key priorities in our caravan and camping park with night time security and a family-focused curfew of 11pm giving our guests total peace-of-mind.

Pet Accommodation Policy

While we adore our furry friends, we are unable to accommodate pets during July and August (except for assistance dogs) because of the volume of guests and in particular, young children.

  • Lodge Veterinary Hospital (Lodge Road, Westport) 098-26006 | €16 per night

Please bring your dog’s vaccination certificate and certificate for Kennel Cough, which should be stamped by your vet and up to date.
