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.
