It is always stressful to plan to visit somewhere you have never been: will the place be nice? will the food be to my taste? will we feel comfortable? Any fears were allayed staying at the Boffin Lodge. The proprietor, Pat, was absolutely lovely and accommodating. The room was clean, spacious and cozy. The property itself was charming and deceptively... More

We could not find it at we had the name as Boffin Guest House, not Boffin Lodge. We drove up and down and then asked someone who pointed us towards an ordinary -looking house set back from the road.. There is parking outside for a few cars. Upon entering a huge hall it was obvious the house was very big... More

Rather a drab room in need of some upgrading and maintenance. Peeling paint in shower room and no extractor fan. Toilet flush handle needs repair. Hot water takes longer than the 90 seconds stated especially if you're the first in building to use it. We booked a double room but it was a twin room with the beds pushed together... More

We were touring Ireland for a few days with some old friends (and they were elderly too) We had travelled fro Australia to catch up with them. Boffin Lodge was a large B&B with a number of rooms. It is close to the harbour side of Westport and a drive from the town centre. The rooms were very clean and... More

All the Rick Steve's recommendations were booked, so I went on TA and booked Boffin. Place was clean, rooms big, breakfast good. Solid 20 minute walk to the center of town. All was well until I tried to take a shower at 815am. Apparently the whole place was showering then, and I got zero hot water. Wife's shower was fine,... More

Beautiful house with lovely friendly hosts, fantastic location for both the town centre and the Quay. Had booked the large family room which was perfect for us, the b&b was fully booked but there was no outside noise at all.

We booked a 2 bedroomed apartment belonging to Boffin Lodge Guest House in Westport. This was further down the street from Boffin Lodge with an entrance via the supermarket car park. The apartment is not up to standard and should not be leased to anybody. It smelt damp, felt dreary, has broken dirty blinds on the windows and a grotty... More

Boffin Lodge is a little outside town which we did not mind. Pat was very friendlyand helpful. The bedroom was cosy and comfortable.Only negative Vegetarians are not well catered for on the menu. Westport has lots of lovely restaurants and pubs
