Our Venues



WHY WESTPORT? There are many compelling reasons why Westport is such an ideal base for our programmes and why we believe it to
be the best location for this purpose anywhere in Ireland. Lying at the western end of the East-West railway line, it is an easy town to access. Once you are here, you are in a prime position to explore and enjoy the surrounding wilderness. By locating our Centre in Westport, we feel we can offer you the perfect mix of great natural beauty in the hinterland, and the lively, cosmopolitan attractions of the town of Westport. You get the best of both worlds, all in one place.
