This is a great b&b in Westport. My wife and I stayed here right after two nights in the very plush Ashford Castle. Geraldine was terrific. Very Irish and very informative. She told us about trad music at Matt Molloys nearby and to walk the 2km over to The Helm restaurant. Finally, the room was very clean and the bed...

We really enjoyed our stay at McCarthy's. The rooms are simple and very clean. In our room we had a twin and full size bed. The bathroom was also a decent size. We parked in front of the lodge 2 of the 3 nights we were there and it was fine. The lodge/bar is located just right outside the octagon....

Westport is a vibrant music town but very difficult to drive in. That said, staying at McCarthy's located just off the main area of town was a perfect choice. Perfect for walking to any part of town. Gen was very welcoming and the accommodations met every need. Gen and Marie prepared a wonder breakfast in the morning and were full...

You can't go wrong if you're looking for an in-town bed and breakfast and a welcoming pub to spend your before bedtime hours. There are apartments, large, medium and small rooms, and a full breakfast that makes this a great base for touring Mayo, Connemara, Achill and all the beautiful West of Ireland. And then, there is Geraldine. One visit,...

Just home from a wonderful trip exploring parts of the West of Ireland. McCarthy's is in the heart of musical Westport. Ger and her team at McCarthy's Lodge & Bar made our four days in Westport magic and memorable. The comfy, clean accommodation exceeded our expectations and the breakfasts were unreal. Ger was a wealth of knowledge and information on...
