Description

The space

the house is situated between the town and the quay area. It is a 15 minute walk to town.( you can stroll into town along the old railway line which is now a popular walking and cycling way.) I will provide 2 free bikes for you to cycle to town or to go on the 42klm greenway that runs from Westport to Achill Island, or you can cycle to Croagh Patrick. There are also some local cycling routes, Westport is very bike friendly.


i It is a 5 minute walk to the Quay area and Westport House where you will find restaurants and pubs and an art Gallery. You can also take boat trips out on clew bay from the quay Westport is an unique and charming heritage town. It was voted best place to live in in Ireland by Irish times readers in 2012. Ireland West Airport(Knock) is an hour away. Shannon Airport is 2 and half hours, and Dublin is 4hrsWestport has lots of outdoor activities. The great western greenway starts in Westport. The greenway is the longest off-road cycling and walking trail in Ireland. It is built upon the old railway line between Achill sound in the north and Westport south east of clew bay, it extends for 43.5km(27miles) There are also many stunning beaches to visit, and you can enjoy a seaweed bath. Westport is a great place to use as a base for touring Connemara and Galway is only an hour and a half away. Westport is situated on the wild atlantic way. The wild atlantic way is Irelands first long-distance touring route, stretching along the atlantic coast from Donegal to West Cork when you are tired out after all the activities you can relax either in my home or visit the many restaurants either at the Quay or stroll into town. Westport has lots of free music pubs to enjoy in the evenings. Most famous is Matt Mulloys of the chieftains fame.

Ruth's place was perfect for my stay with a lovely view of Clough Patrick from my bedroom. The location was easy to find and a short 15 min walk to town and 5 min to the quay. Loved having the bikes to use. Thank you Ruth!

I stayed at Ruth's Airbnb for 2 nights. The room was super cute and cozy and had a beautiful scenic window view of Croagh Patrick mountain. I was able to have full use of the kitchen to cook meals which was lovely. I used the bike to get to town and the quay. I did a scenic bike ride to Croagh Patrick and Westport House so it was super convenient and awesome to have the bike available. Ruth was so sweet and helpful, she even helped me with my laundry. This was my best Airbnb stay and I'd definitely recommend staying here for a quiet country experience while being a close walk to the pubs and restaurants in town.

Ruth’s house is located in a very quiet neighborhood, about 15 min walk from town and maybe 5 min walk to the Harbor (Westport Quay) which also makes it a perfect location. The house has two fireplaces, lovely kitchen and nice living room to relax. The single room that I was occupying for 3 nights was super clean and cozy. During my stay I could borrow a bike from Ruth which helped me to save time and money. Ruth was also very helpful with providing information on how to get around the area. I highly recommend this house. p.s Thank you Ruth for making my stay in Westport super pleasant.

Ruth was a super host. She went beyond the extra mile. Eggs, muesli, porridge, toast, yogurt, even fresh orange juice for breakfast. Plus a wide variety of tea/coffee. Internet was great. Location ideal. Halfway between town and quay. Near cycling path. Bicycles for use too. Lots of good information. Plus she was super hospitable but left you independent.
