Family Bush Camp

Daily from 10am – 12pm. €12.50 per person.

If you are looking for a fun family activity, look no further than Westport House -All-New Bush Camp.

The picturesque estate of Westport House with its 400 acres of fresh air is set in the heart of the town at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way and overlooked by Ireland’s most famous mountain, Croagh Patrick. 

Family Bush Camp will be run by our retired 25 year Army Sergeant and U.N. Peacekeeper, Patsy, who will show families how to source water and firewood, light a fire outdoors, build a shelter, cook outdoors, navigation skills, camp housekeeping, identify native trees and birds, protect yourself from the elements, forage and more.  The camp will take place in our beautiful woodlands and so you are encouraged to dress for the weather.

We simply ask that parents supervise all activities. There is no drop off service.  

Each day families can attend Family Bushcamp from 10am – 12pm, but its Limited availability so advanced booking is required.
