The area and getting around

Westbury’s Georgian splendour

Westport is less than an hour’s drive from Knock Airport, and an hour and a half’s drive from the central town of Galway.

Discover Westport town’s islands

Off the coast of Westport is the extraordinary Clew Bay, which is home to an incredible 365 islands – one for each day of the year! Most of the islands are uninhabited, but a few intrepid souls still hold onto their ancient way of life. The islands can be reached by boat, and a ferry service takes you to the main destinations such as Clare Island, while you can walk to Collanmore Island (home to one single inhabitant) over the Rosmoney Pier.
