Hello I'm traveling to Westport with my nephew and brother in law this coming June (Late June). Any suggestions on where to stay? Central location is best. Thanks! - Paul
I stayed at Clew Bay Hotel (with a Rick Steves tour). Good location, though at the time (2008) I was housed in the "old" part of the hotel that had not yet been updated (I suspect this has been remedied by now, but it wouldn't hurt to ask). Decent current ratings on TripAdvisor. Make sure to go to Matt Molloy's pub of Chieftan's fame (http://www.mattmolloy.com/pub_about.html). Saw some of the best trad music there, including a local man who made up songs on the spot. Wonderful.
Thanks for the advice!
CL, I suspect you came across the bould Mick Lavelle in Matt Molloys http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4lJMe1gfZY&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuFvp2hRZTM&feature=related
