I chose the Old Rectory Retreat for my first visit to Westport (first, actually to Ireland) because I really wanted to stay someplace with character. It was a great decision. The ORR is a charming, eccentric old place a bit outside of Westport. Once simply the family home, the house is now a writers' retreat and B&B. Though I wasn't...

The Old Rectory is a rambling old house set among trees about five minutes drive from Westport town, on the Leenane Road. It’s a perfect location for visiting Westport, with Achill Island a half hour drive north and the wonders of Connemara to the south. We had a warm welcome from Mick, who showed us to our room, a large...

We loved our stay at the old Rectory - perfect if you have a car, it's near Westport, Croagh Patrick and Westport House (which great fun for all the family - we did this mad thing zorbing which involves being strapped inside a huge plastic ball and being thrown down a hill). The Rectory was lovely - the cockrell woke...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family run guest house and creative retreat in a historic building dating from 1852, set among trees, with a stream running past our front lawn. We are situated just off the Leenane Rd.- gateway to wild West Mayo and on to Connemara. Our house is only 3 miles from the beautiful town of Westport with all its tourist amenities.If you are looking for a place where you can immerse yourself in your own creative work: writing, making art, making music;If you just want to get away for a few days or a week;If you want an alternative to international hotel style, and a modern B & B doesn’t fit the bill and hostels sound too Spartan –Try the Old Rectory Experience!We offer 3 different experiences:The Artist’s Retreat – a creative space for anyone looking for a quiet working place or just time out.Full Week Writing Experience /Weekend Workshops in a variety of creative activities and in a small group setting.Bed and Breakfast in a real family home in a secluded environment.If luxury hotel accommodation and en-suite facilities in every room are what you need, then the Old Rectory may not be right for you. But if you’ve tired of the ubiquitous hotel and you want more character than a B & B may have to offer – If you dream of something a bit different: a taste of the peace of a less frenetic age, the character of a simple country house, of sitting under a willow tree by the river or exploring the secret garden, of feeling far from the madding crowd while only a 5 minute drive from the pubs, music, social life, shops, arts and craft centres of Westport – then we may be just that of which you dream. ... more   less
