The Castlecourt Hotel – 4 Star Hotel Westport

The first hotel that you will encounter when you enter the valley of Westport town from the Castlebar side is the revered Castlecourt Hotel; central Westport accommodations ran by a local family. It has a wonderful C Club leisure facility with a full size swimming pool. Its sister hotel The Westport Plaza is at the upper end of the hospitality market in Westport whereas the Castlecourt is a more affordable alternative while still having all the same essential amenities.

The Castlecourt Hotel has been a long standing leader in Westport accommodations as one of the longest running hotels in the town. This hotel has an impressive track record with its consistently good reviews for food, accommodation and entertainment. Here there is something for all with its Petie Joe's bar providing music entertainment for the older quests and its C2 & Mojo's NightClub providing for the younger audiences - the exclusive nightclub in the town. This hotel also has multiple function rooms that have accommodated scores of wedding receptions over the years, making it a leader in that line of hotel service.

The Castlecourt Westport accommodations & The Adventure Islands recreations

The great news for any quest of The Castlecourt Hotel is that very close by there is Mayo's premier adventure provider, The Adventure Islands. The scope of what Adventure Islands offer is tremendous with a variety of activities that will suffice for any age group from 8 to 80.

Westport accommodations & recreations for kids, children and younger generations

For example, young children with guardians visiting the beautiful grounds of Westport House (walking distance from The Castlecourt Hotel) have available to them exciting Laser Combat Games in the forest, where they put on commando clothes and war paint and separate into opposing teams to shoot one another with safe 'laser operated' weaponry. They can also fasten themselves into a giant Zorbing ball, where they'll bounce and roll down a large slope giggling and laughing as they go. Parents may decide to try their skill at some pro-standard Archery, an activity also available for kids as is the Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting, with absolute safety guaranteed in both. With full safety harnesses and body protection, both parents and children can try the thrilling new High Ropes Course that has an amazing 26 elements incorporated in it including a fantastic Skyline through the forest and a Free Fall Leap of Faith that is sure to give you the heebie-jeebies! Of course all of the above activities are enjoyed by adult groups also. For instance, more often than not parents will take part alongside their children. The Adventure Islands also take many adult party bookings for these activities throughout the course of the year.

Westport accommodations & recreations for kids and adult groups on the Island of Adventure

Adults, party groups, stags and hens too love to let the kid out and have a ball with these activities before a night out in Westport town, but that's just the half of it. The Adventure Islands have a second base on Collanmore Island in Clew bay, the only private island of adventure to be found anywhere on the coast of Ireland! The Island of adventure is a fantastic amenity for those in Castlecourt Westport accommodations because of the close proximity of the base to the hotel. The favourite among the kids there is the hilarious Sea Trampoline; The Adventure Islads water park is loved by grown-ups too! The range of activities you can take part in are staggering, they include: Waterskiing, Wakeboarding, Surfing, Sea safari, Snorkelling and much more.

Westport accommodations & recreations – The Island of Adventure – Getting there . . .

From the Castlecourt you take a ten minute drive (transport is provided for those not driving) to Rosmoney Pier were you brought aboard a high-speed rib for a two minute crossing to the island.

Westport accommodations & recreations for older quests

For the elder generations staying in Castlecourt Westport accommodations who are not adrenaline junkies, The Adventure Islands have a lot of things available for them also. For example, without ever going to the island of adventure they could decide to rent bicycles and try the 'Great Western Greenway' scenic cycle facility in Westport. For something relaxing and scenic in an off road manner, they may wish to try Horse Riding with us along some spectacular coastal treks. However, there are two activities which would most certainly be appreciated by elderly people on The Island of Adventure, and they are a relaxing day of Sailing or a Guided Walk Tour around the Island with a healthy and scrumptious beech picnic provided. For those who enjoy wildlife, scenery and local history, the Guided Walk is a very good and reasonably priced activity to book with us. The fresh Atlantic sea air is most invigorating indeed and the sights are truly something to behold.

Across the whole spectrum of activities The Adventure Islands insist on the highest standards of safety, and value for money. Part of this lies in the fact that the equipment is the very best and so too are the excellent staff that we feel so privileged to have with us. The Trip Advisor reviews for us are a true testimony to this. Our service reputation is also apparent in the sheer number of 'likes' that we have received from happy customers on our Facebook social media page.

If the destination is Westport in Co. Mayo, and the accommodation is with the Castlecourt Hotel, then the recreations must surely be The Adventure Islands. Our operations manager Catherine will be more than willing to arrange these activities for you accordingly.
