Like the previous reviewer I visited this property in off season (March 2012) when only the house was open. I was surprised at the steep cost of the entrance to the house (12 euro each) however we paid and hoped for the best. The Grace O'Malley aspect of the house was interesting but otherwise it is just another stately home with the exception that it is still privately owned. Whilst it is nice to help support the continued existence of the house, I have to say that 12 euros was just too expensive for what was on offer.
There is no doubt that I have been spoilt, and therefore my expectations have been heightened by my many visits to UK National Trust run properties which generally offer more at a fraction of the cost.
I have to say i felt a little hoodwinked upon finishing my visit to Westport House.
