12 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Westport, Ireland - Updated 2021


Surrounded by mountains and overlooking an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean called Clew Bay, Westport is a town with a rich heritage and quintessential Irish appeal. Rife with medieval elements, natural beauty and systematic urban planning, it’s no surprise that Westport won the Irish Times’ Best Place to Live in Ireland title, in 2012. It’s one the cleanest places in the country, too: for three years, Westport has won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition, run by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government.

Once a settlement of just 700 inhabitants, Westport has blossomed into one of the most visited places in Ireland. Home to delicious craft beer, a stunning, tree-lined boulevard and numerous outdoor activities (check out horseback riding on the beach and Zorbing), Westport is truly an Irish paradise worth remembering. Even though the town has become quite popular with tourists, there is no shortage of local homes open to travelers looking for a taste of that unique Westport lifestyle. For your next trip to this seaside gem, here are the best Airbnbs in Westport, Ireland, that you should not miss.

Aside from the Greenway, which is just beside the property, there are also many cafes, pubs, shops, a playground, and a swimming pool, a few steps away.
