WESTPORT IN COUNTY MAYO

WESTPORT lies on an arm of CLEW BAY a superb expanse of island-dotted sea framed by MOUNTAIN RANGES.

This really is a unique town in that it was designed to the plan of JAMES WYATT, the well-known architect of the GEORGIAN PERIOD.

The Mall, with its lime trees lining both sides of the CARROWBEG RIVER is a very charming thoroughfare.....

Westport is situated near CROAGH PATRICK , Ireland's most famous mountain and on the shores of Clew Bay, as I told you above...

Its old world harbour once was a thriving port serving the County of Mayo.
Westport is very different in design from any other Irish town!!
A visit to this nice town will confirm its uniqueness and I have to agree....walked through town and enjoyed my stay there.....

Please, travel on and see my WESTPORT TIPS.......

    You've done a marvelous job promoting Westport, thank you. Just a couple of small error.s The textile industry only disappeared in Westport around 1990. The B&B in Oranmore is 50 miles away. Cheers Tommie

    Croagh Patrick sounds like such a great Christian historic location. Would enjoy a tour in this area.
