Westport House and Grounds

One of Ireland’s Best Loved Heritage Attractions.

Westport House & Grounds, first opened to the public is 1960, is one of Ireland’s best loved heritage attractions.  Having been family home to the Browne family for over 300 years, its roots trace back to Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen of Connaught.  As you can imagine - this house has some story to tell.

 

Designed by the famous architects Richard Cassels James Wyatt and Thomas Ivory in the 18th Century, it is located west of the Shannon and is one of Irelands’ most beautiful historic homes open to the public.  It enjoys a superb parkland setting with lake, terraces, wonderful gardens and magnificent views overlooking Clew Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, Clare Island and Ireland’s holy mountain Croagh Patrick. It was built and is still privately owned by the Browne family who are direct descendants of the 16th century Pirate Queen, Grace O’Malley.
