On Saturday March 27 visit 18th century Westport House and its adjoining Pirate Adventure Park as part of its open day where kids go free!
Designed by Richard Cassels, Westport House was built in 1730 by the Browne family on the site of one of Grace O’Malley’s 16th century castles. Westport House is now considered to be one of Ireland’s national treasures. Complete with magnificent architecture, original furniture, and paintings, Westport House creates a living documentation of 500 years of history. With 30 rooms on show, three comprehensive exhibitions, the dungeons and the original old kitchen, you can experience culture, fun and adventure for all members of the family.
