As a family with 2 young children (7 & 9) we stayed in a spacious family room. We ate dinner in the hotel which was excellent value and very tasty! We all enjoyed a fab breakfast (smoked salmon and scramble egg was delicious) before using the local leisure centre pool which was just behind the hotel - you need to book a time slot in advance. The service was fantastic, very kind and thoughtful staff who obviously take pride in their family-run business. We'd definitely stay there again, with or without kids this. Cant believe we haven't been before!

Cannot fault this hotel, staff, location, food and a great nights sleep, there is a large public parking area next to the hotel which made parking very easy at a cost of €3.00 per day what more could you ask for

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was excellent from the warm welcome, to the spacious and comfortable room, and top quality room service. Cool bar in the hotel and the breakfast was excellent. Paid parking behind the hotel is only €3 approx. per day. Great location in the town close to all the pubs, restaurants and shops. Highly recommend the place for a trip to Westport.

I stayed at the Clew Bay Hotel in Westport form 15th to 20th November. Will definitely be back. Lovely relaxed, friendly atmosphere, great customer service, exceptionally clean and nice food. Rooms were well decorated and really comfortable. Great location to see Westport and surrounds. There was free use of the gym and swimming pool in the leisure centre next door. Lovely pool - very little chlorine - so could swim without goggles, which I had forgotten. Really nice sauna, steam room and plunge pool also in leisure centre. Will definitely be back to Clew Bay Hotel early next year.

Have been to Westport a few times before but have normally stayed in the outskirts. This time around we decided to locate more centrally and chose Clew Bay Hotel “sight unseen” and weren’t disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable (I’m a stickler for cleanliness!) and started each day with an excellent breakfast. Maybe it was because we stayed “off season” and mid week but the price for 4 nights was very good. This is not a 5* Hotel (nor does it purport to be) but I found it an excellent value for money “family” run accommodation and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
