Set on a 400 acre estate in the heart of the heritage town of Westport, Ireland’s most beautiful historic house is still family-owned and operated. With a story dating back to the 16th century and Ireland’s infamous Pirate Queen, the current house was built in 1730. Unlike many modernised historic homes, it still retains all the original character and charm allowing you to go back in time.
It is an ideal venue to entertain clients, partners and employees, to work on strategy or celebrate a professional milestone. From a board meeting to an afternoon of activities or a gala dinner, our world-class staff including a designated liaison assigned to your group, and our unique heritage setting, support your professional and business goals.
Experience the impact of a wonderful Board Room feel in the drawing room at Westport House (capacity from 10 people to 80 people). Or bring your larger group to the Long Gallery where you’ll be surrounded by the Browne family dating (capacity 120 theatre style). All modern electronic equipment is available for your presentations, full size antique board table with original and comfortable chairs, and original furnishings, all provide the sort of atmosphere that leads to real entrepreneurial creative thinking.
If you're looking for things to do, we have them in abundance! Adventure activities, sheep herding or Birds of Prey displays on the front lawn. We can transport your group in the adorable Westport Train.
The team at Westport House puts all of its energy into making sure that every one of our clients enjoys a magnificent experience. Join us for a meeting, stay for lunch or dinner – add on some team building. We want you to make yourself at home at our house. And we look forward to welcoming you.

We have attended the White Horse for 3 of our work functions. From our initial contact with the hotel we could only say everything was exceptional. The staff were friendly, professional, supportive and offered advice in regard to the arrangements. We were able to pre-book dietary requirements for delegates meals and our meal was served at the time specified. The food was delicious. We could not fault any aspect of our events in the White Horse and would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to plan conference event in lovely hotel with convenient parking and professional & friendly staff.
