Pirates Den Soft Play Area – Great for little ones

Our soft play area provides a great indoor activity for younger kids. There is a babies area (for those under 2 years) and a climbing frame for children up to 1.2 meters. Serving teas, coffees & refreshments, adults get a well-earned break while the kids explore. The Pirates Den is available for private hire outside of high season for birthday parties.

Pitch & Putt 
Our Pitch & Putt provides a scenic spot to test your amateur golfing skills. The whole family can enjoy this activity, groups can wile away an afternoon or compete to win. Relax in Gracy’s Bar & Café after as you enjoy some refreshments or nibbles.
Adventure Activity Centre – Exhilaration in Lush Outdoor Setting

Everyone from 8 years upwards can enjoy milder to wilder outdoor adventure at Westport House with Ireland’s only custom-built Zorbing site (roll head over heels while harnessed in or enjoy the milder water ride), Archery, Laser Combat Games (like paintball but without the bruising!) or try out our 270m long and 50m high ZipWire Ride or Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting (suited to all ages). Water babies can learn to kayak in our safe lake or try out Stand Up Paddle Boarding. So whether you’re after a giggle, an adrenaline rush or some bonding time with mates, Westport House provides it all.
