Westport Town

Westport, in Irish ‘Cathair na Mart’
(The Stone Fort of the Beeves), is a Bord Fáilte Heritage Town and one of only two planned towns in Ireland. Westport was designed in the 18th Century by James Wyatt and it has many outstanding features including the beautiful boulevard, the Mall, which runs parallel to the Carrowbeg River. Westport boasts high quality restaurants and shops and lively pubs with traditional music. There are also excellent sporting facilities and swimming pools in the town.




Woodside Lodge The Great Western Greenway

The Great Western Greenway

Great Western Greenway
The World Class Great Western Greenway (Westport – Achill) is a 43.5km mainly traffic free cycling and walking facility which primarily follows the line of the famous Great Western Midlands Railway, which closed in 1937. Its development has been made possible by agreement of local landowners who have allowed permissive access to users to pass through their lands.
This route offers gentle gradients and some of the most idyllic scenery in the west of Ireland. The route forms part of the National Cycle Network and it is the longest off road cycling experience in the Country. Check it out here! “Greenway”
