St Patrick’s Day
There is no better place than Westport to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It is the ideal location to remember our national saint as it is only a few miles away from the Holy mountain of Croagh Patrick. The day will be filled with people climbing the mountain then heading into Westport town for the annual parade and maybe the odd pint of Guinness.
