Our Inspector's view

Perched high up overlooking Westport, with Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick in the distance, this fine family-run property is set in landscaped grounds. The reception rooms take full advantage of the stunning views, and include The Brehon, a lounge where food is served throughout the day, and La Fougère, the award-winning restaurant that is a real treat. The comfortable furnishings create an inviting and relaxing atmosphere throughout the lounges, bar and restaurant. Bedrooms are very well appointed and come in a number of styles, with the newer ones being particularly spacious. Guests have complimentary use of extensive leisure facilities, with wellbeing treatments on offer in Spa Salveo. There are extensive banqueting and conference facilities.

About the area

Discover County Mayo

County Mayo is the third largest county in Ireland and is named after the village of Mayo, which these days is known as Mayo Abbey and has a population of less than 500. The county town is Castlebar, which is significantly larger at around 10,000. Mayo is a remote, sparsely populated county with a landscape of boglands, lakes and mountains. Among its many islands there are some real gems. Achill Island is reached by a small causeway, and is the largest of Ireland’s islands. Its economy depends mainly on tourism as little of it can be cultivated, being mostly mountain or bogland.

The cliffs at Keel have weird rock formations, and boats can be hired to get the most of the dramatic scenery. There are also plenty of stone circles and dolmens dotted about inland.

Clare Island is in Clew Bay, and rises to a height of around 1600 feet (500m). It is popular with walkers, anglers, sailors, divers and nature watchers; wildlife includes dolphins, seals, otters, and the rarely sighted chough. A square tower on the island was the HQ of Grace O’Malley, the 16th-century pirate who declared herself Queen of Clew Bay.
