Known as “Ireland’s Most Beautiful Home”, Westport House has a story that matches its beauty. One of the few still privately-owned historic houses left in Ireland, Westport House was built in 1730 by the Browne family whose connections to Mayo date back to the 1500s and even relates them to the trail-blazing pirate queen and chieftain, Grace O’Malley. The house is open to the public as a visitor experience with over 30 rooms open to visit over 3 floors. In 2021, Westport House closed for phase 1 of a restoration project that saw the new owners, the Hughes family, spend €5m on much needed exterior work to protect the historic house from water ingress that is damaging the interiors. Make sure to make time to visit to soak up the beautiful interiors, original antiques and artefacts and hear the stories behind this beautiful home. Please pre-book your visit at shop.westporthouse.ie
