“Gorgeous B&B near Westport - must visit!”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

We stayed at The Garden Gates B&B for just one night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This B&B has all the bells and whistles of a 5 star establishment and more. Our host Martina (and her two very friendly dogs) was very welcoming. She made us feel very at home straight away and was incredibly accommodating of my disabled mother.

The rooms are beautifully appointed and have great views of the surrounding farming area. We loved the country feel - especially the horse which you can see from the bedrooms.

It is perfectly situated between Castle Bar and Westport although I would give Castle Bar a wide berth and spend all your time in Westport, which has fantastic ocean views, restaurants, shops and a great township atmosphere. Martina was kind enough to recommend some great Westport restaurants to us one of which is the Shebeen which is a thatched room pub with great views and even better food.

If you want a beautiful B&B experience in gorgeous surrounds with an even better breakfast then this is a perfect choice. We would also highly recommend this accommodation for less mobile or disabled guests.

Thanks to Martina and her family for creating wonderful memories for us - you won't be forgotten.

Love Desiree, Jack and Jenny (Australia)

We loved staying at The Garden Gates! Martina is the warmest person, so helpful and full of information about the area. We loved the lovely country setting and it's very convenient to Westport. The breakfast Martina made was just fantastic. Our room was a great size and everything was very clean. I would highly recommend staying at The Garden Gates if you're in the Westport area.

The location is wonderful, in the quiet country but close enough to both Castlebar and Westport to act as a gateway to both the north and south of Mayo, and Galway to the far south. Martina is a fantastic host, friendly, highly knowledge about the area and well-connected to the local community.

Room Tip: I stayed in the Honeysuckle Room, on the ground floor was very quiet, had a large en-suite bathroom...

Our stay here on Saturday night was lovely. As we arrived we were greeted by Martina and showed to our room where we enjoyed freshly baked cake. The room was basically massive, enough for 4 people with a decent size bathroom. The room had amazing views across the fields and you could clearly see Craogh Patrick in the distance. When asked for a taxi into Westport, Martina kindly offered to drive us in herself as she was going there anyway. I thought this was a lovely gesture and greatly appreciated. She recommended The Pantry and Corkscrew for dinner and we were not disappointed. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and all in all, we couldn't have asked for more. A truly great B&B.

Stayed one night while researching family connections to the area. The accommodations were terrific. It is in a beautiful tranquil area. Martina the owner was very helpful. Breakfast was very good. The house is only a few years old and is perfect in every way. (I don't remember the last time I had such great water pressure in a shower.)
