  Clew bay heritage centre
by sourbugger
 
 

Clew Bay laps gently into this area of the town, and it is quite a striking and dramatic spot to be.

There is a good range of crafty-type shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs these days (including the very 'boaty' pub called 'The Towers'), so it almost rivals the town centre as a place to relax and have fun. Most of these are contained in well restored warehouses facing the Quay.

The Quay area itself includes the Clew Bay Heritage Centre, which is FREE, and contains a range of arterfacts covering the local history of the area right back to pre-historical times. It sits on the end of the Quay, which is still a semi-industrial, semi-derelict space. I guess there will be moves in future years to further 'enhance' the facilities. The one thing that can't be enhanced is the view - spectacular !

Address: Westport Quay
