NYE in Westport

A 4-Star family owned hotel, Hotel Westport is located in The Demesne, surrounded by woodland in the heart of the heritage town of Westport in County Mayo, one of the beautiful counties situated on the Wild Atlantic Way.

You will discover a uniquely warm and friendly hotel, comfortable and stylish.  This has been duly recognised with a flurry of awards over the last number of years. Staying here you are ideally located for exploring what County Mayo, Connemara and the stunning West Coast of Ireland has to offer.  It is the nearest hotel to the Great Western Greenway, the longest off-road walking and cycling trail in Ireland, a traffic free cycling and walking trail which follows the route of the renowned Westport to Achill railway, which closed in 1937.

Arrive at your leisure on Sunday December 30th and settle in for 3 nights of pampering, relaxation, luxury, and of course some well deserved fun!

The activities both indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) are run at set times each day.  Details of next day events and times are posted at reception each evening so it gives families time to plan.  Activities include Arts and Crafts, Painting, Story Telling, Musical Games, Fancy Dress, Swimming, Treasure Hunts, Fashion Show, Celebrity Look Alike Competition, Nail Art, Marshmallow Tower Building, Theme Parties, Various Pool Games (senior club only) Disco – Dance Competitions, Rice Crispie Bun Making, Puppet Show…  The list is endless and new activities added each season.

While the kiddies are in the Club, parents can enjoy a relaxing meal in the Islands Restaurant, safe in the knowledge that your children are being well taken care of, entertained and having lots of fun with the Fun Fellows and the new friends they’ve made.
