We have compiled some helpful information to help make your visit with us the best it can be. If you have any other questions, please Contact Us on +353(0)9827766 or [email protected]. We will be delighted to help.
WHAT TICKET DO I NEED? WHAT IS THERE TO DO?
We have a range of attractions on site and a range of tickets to hopefully suit everyone. Please check out our Estate Map which shows all of the attractions available on the estate. You can buy individual tickets for Westport House as well as individual and family tickets to the Pirate Adventure Park. The grounds, gardens and walking trails are open for free to all visitors. Book tickets through our website.
NURSING MUMS AND BABY CHANGING
Baby changing facilities are provided in Gracy’s Pizzeria (on arrival by the ticket office), The Pirates Haven as well as in Westport House and in all the bathrooms on the campsite. While we don’t have a private room for nursing mums, there are couches in the ladies’ bathrooms in Westport House for your use.
BRINGING A BUGGY?
We encourage parents of little children to bring buggies as we have a 400 acre estate in total and there may be a lot of walking involved in taking it all in! Unfortunately, there are two areas onsite that are not buggy friendly:
1. Due to the need to protect the antique parquet floors in the house, Westport House is not buggy- accessible. You may park your buggy inside the house while you visit and borrow one of our baby carriers for the little ones. Or even better – plan to bring your own.
2. The Immersive Gaming Experience is situated on the first floor in the farmyard area. You are welcome to park your buggy downstairs while the kids play.
GUESTS WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS OR DISABILITIES
Guest with additional needs or disabilities are very welcome to Westport House. We have drafted a Disability Guide to Westport House in partnership with ClanBeo to help with preparations for a visit. We hope it is helpful. We realise we may not have covered everything so, if you have specific questions regarding any special needs, please get in touch with us at [email protected] or on +353 (0)98 27766.
With regards to tickets and admission, the person with the disability buy a ticket for entry. However, a person who acts as an escort for the visit to assist enters free of charge (on production of the relevant documentation). Please note; do not include these escorts when booking tickets online as they will be given complimentary admission on arrival.
