With old pubs closing fast enough in Westport (all this marketing is sanitising the town), McCarthy's remains as a genuine hostelry that didn't come out of a Tourist Board brochure. It serves beer and porter and shorts, and sometimes there's a music session. Some nights are better that others but if you want consistency go to a hotel and listen... More

Have stayed at this excellent b b over two years and it is brilliant, sparce rooms, but a lovely host, great breakfast, a cracking bar where locals wander in with instruments and the fun begins. it is also a local meet for MCFC fans.

My husband and I stay regularly at McCarthys B & B in Westport. We travel a lot throughout Ireland and I can honestly say that McCarthys B & B is by far one of the best B & B's we have stayed in.

Stayed for one night in early December as we could not find a hotel available. Booked it online but photos do not represent the true image of this establishment. Our room was very small with a tiny bathroom. There was an musty smell in the room as this is an old building. Condensation running down the window and the radiator... More

The Lodge is in the center close to the main streets of Westport , the reception is in the pub . We were 2 in a triple room , the room was really big, therefore maybe is a bit small for three but it was very clean and cozy. Good breakfast, you can choose from a menu and the woman... More

This was a nice, charming B&B as we were trekking across Connemara. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious enough and everything was quiet, although I think there were rooms above the pub and I don't know if noise would be an issue there. Breakfast was great downstairs. If pubbing is your thing all you had to... More

Stayed here a few times over the years. Always a nice welcome, lovely clean rooms with great breakfast. Location is excellent for exploring, and the night life. Free parking nearby. The family owned pub next door is also very welcoming (but no food served). 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

18 friends assembled in McCarthys last weekend. Immediately we commented on the friendly welcome and the cleanliness & warmth of both the accomodation and bar premises. The owners & staff engaged with all of us and Mr Gerry Curry the barman deserves special mention for his friendliness, stories, humour and kindness. The food was fresh and we were delighted with...
