    Was a good day enjoyed everything we could do on our day pass but you have to pay extra for some other rides for example 4 euros extra each on top of day pass to go on the big wheel and its cash only at the rides disappointing.House,Swan ride,Train and slides my daughter enjoyed though.

    A little more expensive than other nearby campsites, but you get what you pay for. Excellent facilities, Wi-Fi and regularly patrolling security, as well as just a great, picturesque location.

    It's a great camping site. All the facilities are well maintained. The toilets and shower areas are cleaned regularly throughout the day. There was hot water to clean utensils. There are lot of drinking water stations too. The people at reception are friendly and allowed me to use the freezer. The pub is great as well - good food and music! They let me and my friends play cards at their table.

    Lovely town and a well kept site. A boisterous, noisy atmosphere which wasn't great for us with very young children. I'd have liked to have had more information about the age/height restrictions for the adventure park online though- our boys are too young for most of the activities. We will return when they're a bit older though.

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.

Those wanting a more luxurious vacation spot should check out one of the city's many scenic spa destinations.
