We hope the information below will help you in planning your visit to Westport House & Pirate Adventure Park as well as the area.
Of course, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on +353 98 27766 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions.
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.

Watch the Weather
We are a primarily outdoor attraction that is very much at the mercy of the elements on the beautiful West Coast of Ireland. This sometimes means that we get all four seasons in one day! Please visit www.yr.no/place/Ireland/Connacht/Westport_House/ for a forecast of upcoming conditions on the estate so that you can plan on sunscreen and sun hats or raingear and wellies (or all of the above!).
Eating & Drinking Onsite
We have a variety of food establishments on site to meet most guests’ requirements including
- Join us for a while in the old restored kitchen cafe for a range of sweet and savory meal options.
- Pirates Den serving tea, coffee, soft drinks & snacks.
- The Galley in the Pirates Haven serving chips, kids meals, burgers and more.
- The Old Kitchen Cafe in Westport House serving teas, coffees (the best onsite, we’re told!) as well as delicious home-made cakes, soups, sandwiches, paninis, pizzas and scones.
Baby bowls may be purchased in the Old Kitchen Cafe and we will re-heat baby food for you if we have the facilities.
Brought your own food? Great! We have a beautiful picnic area in the Coach House Courtyard as well as the Farmyard– please note that these areas are largely uncovered so it provides picnicking in the true sense of the word: outdoors.
What is Included in my Ticket?
We have a range of attractions on site and a range of tickets to hopefully suit everyone. Please download our site map which shows all of the attractions in blue (Westport House), red (Pirate Adventure Park) and orange (Adventure Activities, Birds of Prey and Carnival Attractions).
You can buy individual tickets for Westport House & Grounds as well as individual and family tickets to Westport House & Pirate Adventure Park (this is a combo ticket). These tickets provide for unlimited use of all of the blue and red attractions.
The attractions in orange are priced separately and are outside the core area of the attraction – pay as you go, if you like.

Which Attractions Can Kids Enjoy?
We love that families bring children of all ages to Westport House – both big and small! We don’t operate on an age basis but instead on the height of the visitor. Please see “How you measure up?” to plan what rides you can go on. For a simple way of thinking of it, we usually recommend the Pirate Adventure Park for kids under 12 and our Adventure Activities are suited to kids 8 years and up. The Carnival Rides are suitable for all ages.
Nursing Mums & Baby Changing
Baby changing facilities are provided in the Super Loo (in the ticket office area by Gracy’s Bar), 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.
We encourage parents of little children to bring buggies as we have a 480 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 Pirates Den – our indoor soft play area – 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@example.com or on +353 98 27766.
With regards to tickets and admission, the person with the disability pays for entry to the Pirate Adventure Park at Westport House. 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.
The various adventure activities onsite will deliver a world of fun! Please be aware that certain activities may have specific height and weight restrictions. All details are on the activity page, which can be found here.
