Westport

The charming town of Westport, situated on the shores of Clew Bay, is one of the few planned towns in the country. It is an estate town, built to the plan of James Wyatt, the well known architect of the Georgian period. One of its outstanding features is the elegant tree lined boulevard, known as The Mall. Westport House, home of Lord Sligo, is open to the public during the summer months. The history of the development of Westport, from the time it was an O Malley stronghold in the 16th century to the present day, is brought alive in the Heritage Centre, located at Westport Quay. (Westport - meaning The Stone Fort of Beeve).
