Interaction with Guests
You will be met by Dick when you arrive and have a cuppa and he will describe the best that Westport has to offer. He will be on hand over your stay if you have any questions or for local knowledge and is a true 'covey' (nickname for life long Westport man)so will have lots of stories about the area....
Whilst having close access to the town centre, Knockranny is very peaceful and beautiful. Situated on a hill overlooking Croagh Patrick you will feel as if you are in the countryside without being isolated from the town centre and all that Westport has to offer.
The house has easy access to walk to town and there are plenty of local tours by bus or Irish rail if you do not have a car. Taxis are easily found and it is only a short hop skip and a jump from town so inexpensive. Hire car is available locally if you want to take some stunning coastal drives.
Myself and my girlfriend couldn't have had a better stay in Westport. On the way to the house I was in contact with Richard who gave us perfect directions. And on arrival Mags met us at the house. She was so welcoming and gave us a snack before we headed out to a wedding. I can't say enough positive things about this stay. AND they have a gorgeous dog called Molly.
Richard's place is beautiful and they couldn't have been more helpful and friendly!
Hôtes très agréables et chaleureux, dans un cadre très spacieux et confortable.
Richard's house was spacious and clean, and in a very nice location. We enjoyed a comfortable night here, and the spacious kitchen facilities were wonderful to cook breakfast in. The internet was fast and reliable, and Richard and his family were generally quite nice and easy to talk to. We very much enjoyed our stay here, and would be happy to stay here again!
Richard and Mags were absolutely fantastic hosts! They made us feel very welcome and helped us with our desperate laundry situation. The house is within walking distance of town, and Richard had excellent suggestions about where to go. All in all, probably the best place we stayed at during our trip.
Myself and two friends were Richard's first Airbnb guests, and everything was perfect. Richard met us there and made sure we were comfortable in our rooms while also sharing local recommendations. Our rooms were beautiful and incredibly comfortable and there was coffee, tea, and toast available in the morning. The location is convenient and a two minute drive or ten minute walk into the heart of the town. We would recommend a stay with Richard in his family' beautiful home to anyone visiting Westport.
Hi all! Very much looking forward to meeting you on your visit to Westport.
We are having a fantastic summer and I have been spending lots of time in the garden getting it in top shape for our visitors!
