Westport locals work tirelessly to encourage a great atmosphere for guests and visitors and this is reflected in the amount of awards it has won for such efforts. Among these are numerous florale and international bloom awards which might attract any young, budding botanists or Romeos. A historic planned Georgian Settlement, Westport has also been acclaimed the most attractive town in Ireland.
Don’t let the greenery and calm, scenic appeal of Westport fool you, it also has a pulling student appeal to the buzzing quay area down on Clew Bay. As an area greatly inhabited by short term visitors, you’re sure to find lots of eager partygoers to companion your pub crawling crew.
Once run riot by Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley, who’d have thought?, Clew Bay has a lot to offer in terms of heritage. With history trails and tours that detail as far back as The Stone Age, you can embrace your inner Indiana Jones (or Captain Jack Sparrow) on the Clew Bay Archaeological Trail. Westport is also known for its national parks as a spot for camping or hiking, you could also perhaps catch your dinner as it doubles as a popular spot for Angling. As well as the rich culture and history, scenic views and friendly locals and visitors, Westport has one of our widest ranges of daytime student friendly activities and adventure sports. Surfing (and surf lessons for beginners), coasteering, rock climbing/ abseiling, snorkelling , kayaking and zorbing are just a few in a long list of options for you to engage in at Westport.
By night, you can sip pints (or something stronger) by the fire in one of Westport's traditional Irish pubs and trade stories about the days spent surfing or adventuring. The town is no stranger to late night venues and clubs either, and you might just find yourself hitting a dance floor fit for a Castle with newfound comrades after hours.
Other than Westport, we do offer tours to a range of locations on the west - Galway, Limerick, south - Waterford, Cork and east coasts - Dublin, Kilkenny, so don’t worry if Westport has not completely fueled your spirits.
