Westport has just been designated the best place in Ireland to live in, and that tells you a bit about how proud we are of our town. It has been crowned national “Tidy Towns” champion three times, and has won many other awards both national and international (Entente Florale, Best Kept Town and others). It’s a charming historic town with a bustling personality and photo opportunities around every corner. The seamless blend of traditional and modern is unmatched throughout Ireland.
Lurgan House bed and breakfast is in the town land of Carrownalurgan, just ten minutes walk from the town (or a couple of minutes drive). The town and the nearby Quay area have a wide range of quality restaurants and cafes to suit all pockets as well as cosy pubs, many of which feature traditional music regularly. We’re always happy to help with suggestions and recommendations.
Sporty types are well catered for too, with the Green-way (the old Westport – Achill railway line which is now a cycling and walking trail), 5 swimming pools and gyms. A short drive brings you to sandy beaches for walking, swimming or surfing.
