Westport House & Pirate Adventure Centre

Built in 1730 on the ruins of a former castle of the legendary Irish pirate queen Grace O'Malley, Westport House is one of Ireland's most beautiful and historic homes. It is still home to – and run by - her direct descendants, the 11th Marquess of Sligo and his family. In addition to Westport House, this beautiful 480 acre estate has

  • A family-friendly Pirate Adventure Park
