Family Holidays 2020

If you are looking for a fun family holiday, look no further than Hotel Westport -All New Bush Camp Staycation Offering

With foreign travel being unlikely for the remainder of 2020, Irish staycationers are being encouraged to enjoy the many wonders on their doorstep, starting with picturesque Westport, this summer. 

Hotel Westport is a peaceful haven set on the idyllic surrounds of Westport House, and the Hotel Westport team has spent significant time and energy in preparing the highest safety standards and guidelines in anticipation of welcoming guests back to enjoy a unique staycation experience this summer. We are especially excited for our fun-and adventure-loving families who will certainly find something to fulfil their travel needs at this west coast wonder.

The picturesque estate with its 400 acres of fresh air is set in the heart of the town at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way and overlooked by Ireland’s most famous mountain, Croagh Patrick.  Hotel Westport is perfectly located to offer good clean fun to our guests.

Each day families can choose from Family Bush Camp, Pool Time or Bike Hire. 

Family Bush Camp will be run by our retired 25 year Army Sergeant and U.N. Peacekeeper, Patsy, who will show families how to source water and firewood, light a fire outdoors, build a shelter, cook outdoors, navigation skills, camp housekeeping, identify native trees and birds, protect yourself from the elements, forage and more.  There will a daily session for up to 15 families at a time.  The camp will take place in our beautiful woodlands and so you are encouraged to dress for the weather. 

Splash time sound good to you?  Us too.  Pool Time must be reserved and up to 10 people will be allowed in the pool at a time for up to 45 minutes. You are asked to change in your bedroom and bring a robe to wear to and from the pool.  

Why not Hire a Bike from Clew Bay Bike Hire and pick it up right by the hotel?  Simply reserve it on arrival and pay Clew Bay Bike Hire direct.  We have put together an exclusive 10k family-friendly loop through estate to Westport Harbour, returning to town on the Railway Walk, crossing over to Knockranny Woods to Aittireesh and return through estate back to the hotel. Did you know that Clew Bay Bike Hire also offer guided kayaking?

If you prefer to do your own thing as a family – why, that’s just fine with us too. If you’d like to take our Pirate Explorer Pack to go explore the estate, just ask. We hope that you’ll find our trails and maps a fun enticement to encourage the kids to head out on a walk.  

In the evening, families will dine in the very socially distanced Cara Suite. The owner and head chef of Cian’s on Bridge Street, Cian Hayes, will be opening a pop-up restaurant experience in Hotel Westport this summer: Cian’s at Hotel Westport. Bringing a unique take on the menu ordinarily served at his award-winning restaurant to Hotel Westport, the pop-up will take advantage of the large space available in the hotel so guests and locals alike can enjoy a remarkable dining experience in comfortable and socially distant surrounds. Diners can expect to enjoy the best in locally sourced ingredients with bespoke dishes that are bursting with flavour.  And Cian promises to have some healthy and delicious choices for the kids too.  

We simply ask that parents supervise all activities including dinner. We may no longer offer a drop off service to allow for effective social distancing & hygiene measures to been overseen. Pre-booking of all activities will be required.

Oh yes, there will be a prize-giving/certificate presentation before check out to all Bush Campers!  

We provide a great range of family accommodation, ranging from standard family rooms, standard and premier interconnecting rooms, deluxe family rooms and premier suites, depending on your requirements.

Everything about Hotel Westport is designed with Families in mind. From fabulous family-friendly accommodation to our restaurants, Family Bush Camp, leisure centre, baby listening service and travel cots allowing you to spend quality and fun-filled times together.
