Westport, County Mayo
Westport is a unique town because of its layout and location. The town was planned and designed by the famous architect Jame Leeson and when you couple this with the backdrop ofCroagh Patrick, Ireland’s most famous mountain, the result is something very special. Also close by is Clew Bay – an old world harbor, which was once a thriving port serving theCounty of Mayo. Westport is very different in design from any other Irish town..
