    If you go by car on the road to Westport (Co Mayo) stop 1 or 2 hours in the national park. It's free and the proposed point of view is friendly. The Museum inside is OK. You can even if you want to restore you.

    When one speaks of the Ballycroy National Park, one must actually distinguish whether one thinks the visitor centre and the surrounding area, or the actual Park, which is much larger. We were only in the area of the Centre, the large park with the long hiking route is more of something for those who are good and need not necessarily have good ways. At the Center, there's only a shorter route around a hill, with a stint on the top. This road is well built and well schaffbar for everyone. At the start a visit to the Centre itself is, in which an interesting exhibition explains a lot about the Marsh landscape and life in this. For children a lot is here to handle. The videos are only in English and Irish, but there is a brochure available in German. A recommended Café is located on the upper floor of the Centre, in good weather, you can sit outside and enjoy the delicious Scones. Worth a visit of the national sparks definitely, especially when the sun shines.

Where to stay in Westport

Many tourists visit Westport for the nightlife or to use it as a base for travel around County Mayo. Though you will most likely spend your time at cafes, pubs, or touring the surrounding countryside, reserve a spot to stay in town in the convenient, historical Quay district. Here you'll find a range of hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts. If traveling on a budget, look outside the city center for lodging options. Those wanting a more luxurious vacation spot should check out one of the city's many scenic spa destinations.
