Gracy’s Pizzeria & Bistro
Famous for its wood-fired pizza and the best beer garden in Westport, a visit to Westport House is not complete without popping into Gracy’s for some refreshment. Check out Gracy’s Menu 2020 featuring favourites including pizzas, burgers and scrummy Fish n Chips to name but a few. Enjoy red or white or even prosecco on tap as well as a selection of beers and craft ales.
Gracy’s offers a safe, family-friendly environment for kids of all ages, along with complimentary parking, delicious food, live entertainment and craft beers. And the very best in socially distant dining in its spacious beer garden.
Gracy’s Pizzeria & Bistro is home to Westport’s original stone bake oven, ensuring our freshly made pizzas are the best in the West. Created before your very eyes in our covered outdoor seating area, they make up part of the delicious menu sourced from local, artisan producers. And don’t forget the homemade desserts! We also have a fabulous new coffee, especially roasted for us by Bean West, a family-run boutique coffee roasting business, literally on our doorstep, here in Westport.
Open Daily from 2pm – 10pm for July and August

Delicious fare in the Old Kitchen Cafe
**The Tea Rooms in Westport House will be closed in 2020, however, please consider lunch in Gracy’s (2pm to 10pm) or take a coffee from the Coffee Wagon (11am to 5pm).**
Consider why the windows were so high in this room – was it to keep people from seeing the inner workings of the heart of the house or to keep the servants from seeing how the other half lived? Or simply a more practical need to let in more light?
During the 19th century, when the estate was a much larger place, cattle, sheep and pig farming played a large role in creating an income and also meant that the family had their own meat supply for the table. Everything would have been prepared and cooked in this kitchen and served in the large dining room upstairs. The meat hooks on the ceiling would have been used to hang or age the meats in advance of cooking. How appetising?
The Victorian cast iron range – which still lights in the Old Kitchen today – is where all the cooking, steaming, baking and boiling took place, far away from the main living quarters. This was to ensure cooking smells, steam and the general hustle and bustle of the engine of the house did not filter up into the main living areas. We hope you get the best seat in the house where you can enjoy its warmth during your visit!
We have a delicious menu to offer a whole range of delicious sweet and savory options, gluten free options and child-friendly choices. We serve some of the best coffee in town here in the tea rooms along with a selection of teas and quarter bottles of wine. We hope something tickles your fancy.
Take a while to sip a cup of tea or enjoy a delicious sweet or savory treat while you take in the original antique tiling, copper pots and jelly molds and even the original bread oven.
Wherever you choose to dine – visitors are guaranteed of a warm welcome and the best in Irish hospitality.
