Westport House

This is an eighteenth century house designed by Richard Cassels and James Wyatt built on the site of previous castle owned by the O'Malley family. The chief of the O'Malley Clan was Gráinne Ní Mháille famously known as the Pirate Queen of Connaught and the dungeons of her castle can still be seen in the basement of the house. The house is privately owned but open to the public and sits in large attractive grounds with a campsite, Pirate Adventure Park and other attractions.
