Westport (Ireland)

Westport is a heritage town in County Mayo in the Republic of Ireland. It's on the west coast directly under the shadow of the holy mountain of Croagh Patrick.

Get in

Westport can be reached quite easily in 3.5h by train from Dublin, by road, or by plane to Knock Airport. The train station is located a bit out of the town on the Galway road and the timetables are on-line.

Get around

Westport is small enough to get around by foot; however most people use Westport as a base and then you will have to think about getting a car, bike or hiking around by foot.

The public transport around Westport is not all that good, so you may need to get a car. It's easy enough to rent via one of the mainstream agencies, or you can try getting a Taxi. Bikes can also be rented quite easily.

Hitchhiking is also done a lot here and it is quite easy to get a lift up to, for example, Achill - or Croagh Patrick.
