Lovely bnb in the heart of the city. Easy walking distance to shops and pubs. The breakfast was amazing!!!
Can't say enough great things about our stay at Geraldine's above McCarthy's Bar. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of our room. Super clean and comfortable beds. The Irish breakfast they served was fantastic and we were lucky enough to be able to chat with Geraldine during breakfast because it was a slow time of year. My wife and I hope to make it back here the next time we are in Ireland.
Geraldine and her family were amazing hosts and the apartment suited our needs perfectly.
The apartment is in a prime location, just a stones throw from all of Westports delightfult little restaurants and bars, but set back on a peaceful street. It is only a short stroll from the picturesque river which runs through the centre of town and (as we realised toward the end of our stay) the rear gates to historic Westport House (which is accessible to the public and well worth a look) were at the end of our street. There is also a major supermarket just across the road which was so convenient.
Spending Xmas on the other side of the world was a little daunting but Geraldine very kindly had a turkey and a ham in the fridge waiting for us upon our arrival on Xmas eve and really went out of her way to ensure we had a special day. Even popping in briefly on Xmas day to bring us some ice and check that everything was okay. The apartment was very well equipped to host a Christmas lunch for 6 people and it was a truly memorable Christmas for all of us!
McCarthy's Bar was a classic little Irish pub which had a very warm feel to it. The locals were always up for a chat and freely gave advice on where to go and what to do around the area. We even had the pleasure of meeting Geraldine's first grandchild (only 2 weeks old) on Chrissy eve, which had the locals very excited and made the atmosphere all the more festive.
We all had a wonderful week and would gladly recommend this place to any prospective visitors!!
Loved our stay, plan on staying again. Geraldine was wonderful and attentive. The room was exactly as described- large, clean, cozy and with modern private bath. Breakfast and tea also great perks. Location was ideal for walking around downtown. Would recommend to anyone looking to spend some time in Westport!
We enjoyed our stay at the B&B. The host was friendly and our room was large and cosy. The location of the B&B is excellent - 1 minute from the town centre and also ideal if you want to take the path to the coast.
Geraldine was extremely welcoming. She was waiting at the apartment upon arrival to greet us and show us the apartment! The apartment is very comfortable and spacious, the location is great, minutes walk from bars and restaurants with lots of parking nearby. We had a great stay, I'd happily recommend this apartment to anyone.
Central, nice room, and good breakfast with friendly helpful staff.
Great spot, fantastic location!
Thanks for a great stay!
Thanks Bernard , you are welcome .
Stayed in 3 bed apartment. Excellent location. There was everything in the apartment that we required. Everything was clean and utensils, bed linen and appliances were of high quality. I'd stay here again and would have no problem recommend it. The host was friendly and helpful.
I really can't speak more highly of a person and a place than Geraldine and McCarthy's. Geraldine is an absolutely wonderful person and she did an amazing job with the bed and breakfast. It's truly impressive. McCarthy's has everything you want in a bed and breakfast in Ireland - it's cozy and you immediately feel at home. The apartment was very fresh and clean too. Breakfast is served daily and it doesn't disappoint. I will miss the delicious bacon butties that Geraldine made. You will instantly become friends will all the staff who work here. They are all very sweet and personable and are exactly the type of people you want to meet while you are in Ireland. McCarthy's is in a very good location in Westport. It's probably a minute or less walk from the Octagon which you would probably consider the center of town. If you haven't been to Westport, I highly recommend visiting. There are a ton of things to do. It's the perfect size where you have everything you need but it still has a very relaxed feel. They have done a great job maintaining the buildings where they look and feel probably similar to how they did when they were originally built. I can't recommend a place any more highly!
You are welcome back anytime , love to have you around
Will miss you and so will Rosco.
