Mr Kieran Thompson
Newport House Hotel is an historic home built in 1720. Its classical facade looks out over the Newport River, which is a famous place for salmon fishing in County Mayo.
Newport House Hotel provides a unique opportunity to experience the luxury of a four-star accommodation and the hospitality of an historic country house. It is situated in Newport, which rests between Achill Island and the mountains of Mayo.
The bedrooms, some of which are suited for families, are spacious and well furnished. They are spread out over three houses, one of which previously served as the holiday residence of the late Sean Lemass, Prime Minister of Ireland. When not relaxing in the comfortable rooms, guests can sit down for sumptuous dishes and wonderful wines at the hotel restaurant, which was named Best Restaurant in Connaught in 2004.
An ideal lodging for avid fishers, Newport House holds the fishing rights to the renowned Newport River, while the loughs of Feeagh and Furnace are just 20 minutes away. Also, visitors will find many golf courses, heritage sites, walking and cycling routes, including the Great Western Greenway, a 31km, off-road cycling and walking trail from Newport to Achill. Bicycle hire is available through the hotel.
