Westport Town
Westport – (Cathair na Mart - The Stone Fort of the Beeves) is located at the Southwest extremity of Clew Bay and is the largest coastal town in Mayo. The English architect James Watt designed Westport in the 18th century.

Westport is near the popular religious site of Croagh Patrick where St. Patrick fasted for forty days and forty nights. There are excellent beaches and water sports in the area, including a championship golf course. Unique, locally produced knitwear and pottery is available from merchants. Westport sponsors an Arts Festival each September.

NOTE: The entrance to Anchor buildings is directly to the right of the entrance to the Jester Pub on Bridge Street.
