If you are visiting and you don’t know what to see, this might help you a little big . Here are the top places you need to check out if you ever visit Westport in Ireland!

In Town

#2 -Westport bridge – continue walk towards the center and take some photos on the bridge. It’s beautiful when the sun hits and you can see the colors from the flowers perfectly.

#4 -Westport House. If you don’t want to spend money don’t worry you can get in and see at least the gardens and the landscape. It’s really pretty and you can take great photos.

Go for a walk or even a run on the greenway has an amazing view of the forest

#7 – Pub’s
I don’t think I need to give you a reason to check the pubs. Once in Ireland…

#8 – Enrica’s Cafe, it’s a little cupcake shop in Westport. You can walk there from the town center, it’s a 30min walk. They have the best cupcakes ever and the staff is really nice. They are attached to a garden shop so it makes everything even more pretty and cozy. #Instagram

Just enjoy, there is not that much to see, so a couple of days in Westport will be enough for you to see everything 🙂 Of course check out the shops in town, especially the souvenir ones and the charity ones.
