This is a very very nice B&B. The rooms are very spacious and modern. The B&B is extremely clean. It is located right in the center of town. The breakfast that is available to you is very good with several breakfast selections. The ladies that run this B&B are most gracious and want to make your stay a good one....

Geraldine and all the ladies were incredibly welcoming. Nothing was a problem for them and with the pub attached they provided us with a guitar for the afternoon and put the fire on to keep us warm. Could not recommend the place enough. Basically the hospitality you love when you are Irish.

This is a great b&b in Westport. My wife and I stayed here right after two nights in the very plush Ashford Castle. Geraldine was terrific. Very Irish and very informative. She told us about trad music at Matt Molloys nearby and to walk the 2km over to The Helm restaurant. Finally, the room was very clean and the bed...

We really enjoyed our stay at McCarthy's. The rooms are simple and very clean. In our room we had a twin and full size bed. The bathroom was also a decent size. We parked in front of the lodge 2 of the 3 nights we were there and it was fine. The lodge/bar is located just right outside the octagon....

Westport is a vibrant music town but very difficult to drive in. That said, staying at McCarthy's located just off the main area of town was a perfect choice. Perfect for walking to any part of town. Gen was very welcoming and the accommodations met every need. Gen and Marie prepared a wonder breakfast in the morning and were full...
