A delightful manor home, replete with well crafted exhibits, and a caring attitude toward the ancestral home and how history & the locals are intertwined. The abundance of artifacts and the superb manner by which they are displayed should enthrall any visitor.

Westport house was definitely worth the visit. My children are 8 & 10 and they loved the pirate adventure land. The house tour is also great.
