Fodor's Expert Review Westport Plaza Hotel

Westport, Co. Mayo, Ireland

With all the hallmarks of Ireland's Celtic Tiger boom time, this swish and stylish boutique hotel has a vast marble lobby with a double-sided gas fire and huge guest rooms with over-sized, veneered, Art Deco–style furniture and bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and modern showers. This may not be what you've come to the West of Ireland to experience, but there's plenty to enjoy about it. It's part of a large new complex in the town center, and shares leisure facilities with its more traditional sister hotel, the Castlecourt. The best bedrooms overlook a Zen-like inner roof garden, while others have balconies perched over the fountain and ground-floor courtyard.

PROS

  • some rooms have balconies overlooking roof garden
  • great amenities
  • quiet but central

CONS

  • avoid the few bedrooms with street views
  • you might forget you're in Ireland
  • guests have to walk outside to the pool
