From small beginnings of 2,700 visitors in 1960, it has become one of Ireland’s best loved attractions and was recently voted one of the Best Family Visitor Attractions in Ireland by Primary Times magazine. One of those rare attractions, it appeals to everyone in the family with its extraordinary mixture of-- history and heritage in this 18th century historic house with 4 permanent exhibitions, over 30 rooms open to the public, guided and self-guide tours, tea rooms and gift shops-- the fun of the Pirate Adventure Park – a primarily outdoor amusement park best suited to the under 12’s which features water and swinging ship rides, train, swan Pedaloe boats, slides, playgrounds, pitch & putt and in-door soft play area-- exhilaration with the adventure activities such as zorbing, archery and water sports-- child-friendly fun in its varied events calendar with our Fireworks Extravaganza, Halloween Fest and Winter Wonderland being highlights-- the family-friendly Caravan & Camping Park in the gorgeous park and woodland setting with excellent amenities. Owned and operated by the Browne Family, who have been onsite for over 300 years and can trace their roots back to Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen of Connaught, Westport House provides a full days fun – and more to any visitor to the West. The jewel in the crown of the West, you cannot visit Mayo without stopping in. We look forward to welcoming you.

I have visited here on a few occasions in the past with my wife and three kids. It is a very enjoyable day out with lots to do. However, it now costs €75 for the day. I think that while this is expensive it is ok if all is included as it used to be. Not any more. Now ,... More

When we got there, there was plenty of parking. It was a warm day, found our way over to the shop that sells tickets, the lady was nice but not very helpful I got the impression that the more questions I was asking her the more annoyed she got. All I wanted to know was when I paid my €75.00... More

This was a favourite place for us to visit when we were in the west. Unfortunately our latest trip was very disappointing. They have introduced dogems and various other "funderland " type amusements with very loud music blaring. In my opinion not at all suited to the beautiful surroundings. We also paid what seemed to be a lot more than... More

Very disappointed with this place. No family rate at entrance. Some basic rides included in this. Anything worth while was €4 extra per head per ride. Won't go there again Just too expensive with kids.

We visited this with our three young children. Our 7 and 4 year old loved it! Got to go on the Ferris wheel, train, swinging boat etc. Great fun. Went to the birds of prey show- well worth attending. It was brilliant and the children got to have their photo taken with them. They even got to hold some of... More

Great family fun day, lots of picnic areas, kids really enjoyed it, very friendly staff and they really wanted us to have a good day.... only thing that would have made it 5 stars is that it should be all inclusive!!!

2 adults and a 5 year old, went early during Easter break. Visited the entire grounds. Started with the House, We had to wait, as a tour group was getting a guided tour and blocking the main entrance to the house. Waited about 10 minutes. While the house overall is nice, there's little information up beside historical points. The dungeons... More

As other people have stated, the pirate theme park is extremely overpriced. We paid €75 for 2 adults and 4 children, we had to pay for most of the rides in the park when we entered as the tickets didn't cover the majority of them. There are height restrictions on most of the rides (which is understandable) so my 4... More
