I would prefer Westport, one of my favourite towns in the West. Is it a day trip or are you staying overnight?Edited: 15 February 2012, 14:43
What is it your looking for from your visit? I live near Ballina and I think it has a lot to offer but I love westport town it has a nice relaxed feel to it and is home to westporthouse. westporthouse.ie/westport-house-and-gardens/… This would be well worth a visit.
Westport is very picturesque and has lots of nice little shops.
Ballina is a larger town but you can still easily walk around it. It is home to the famous river moy ridgepool and it attracts lots of fishermen. The best time to visit imo is in July when the famous salmon festival is on this is a huge tourist attraction and is very well ran.
I think that is the norm there would not be much demand for any more.
