Westport, designated one of Bord Failte's Heritage Towns, is situated in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, overlooking Clew Bay. One of the few planned towns in the Country, Westport was designed in the 18th Century by James Wyatt. It has become one of Ireland's established tourism centres, with many outstanding features, most notably the beautiful tree lined boulevard known as The Mall, running parallel to the Carrowbeg River.
Croagh Patrick, one of Europe's best know places of Pilgrimage, has provided a tough ascent for many pilgrims each year, climbing barefoot in the memory of St. Patrick, who spent forty days and forty nights fasting on the summit more than 1,500 years ago. A small church at the summit of the mountain welcomes penitents, while magnificent views of Clew Bay, with an island for every day of the week, provides inspiration for many walkers and visitors throughout the year.
Westport town boasts many tourist facilities. An excellent 18 hole Championship Golf Course is located on the Golf Course Road, just off the Newport Road, approximately one mile outside the town centre. This fabulous golf course guarantees excellent golf and scenic splendour.
Horse riding and Pony trekking is on offer all year round. Clay pigeon shooting, sea angling, hill walking, sailing and adventure sports are among the many other activities on offer to the visitor.
Bunratty in Clare Ireland is known for the castle of the same name that stands proudly over the town. The site of Bunratty Castle was originally a Viking Trading Camp in 920 and in the centuries that followed, three other structures rose and fell before the castle that stands there now. Learn about the exciting history of the most complete and authentically restored and furnished castle in Ireland on a tour by day. At night, step into the age of lavish food with a cup of mead in hand and attend a banquet in the stately main hall of the castle. Music of the harp and violin will tickle your ears as you enjoy entertainment of the renowned Bunratty singers.
Bunratty is also home to the Folk Park, a 20-acre re-creation of a 19th century Irish village, complete with thatched cottages, farmhouses and local shops open to the public.
And no trip to Bunratty would be complete without stopping into Durty Nellys for a cup of mead. The 400-year-old pub, one of the most famous in Ireland, is nestled right next to Bunratty Castle.
