Visiting art lovers are going to enjoy this one. The very welcoming and personable Waterfront Gallery is County Mayo’s most contemporary art gallery and is home of some of the most modern art displays and exhibitions from both Irish and foreign artists alike. The gallery is known for showing a wide variety of art, which might not be the commercial kind as well (check with the gallery before visiting and deciding to bring younger family members, as well).
It’s an overall small, intimate space with plenty of entertaining exhibits (many with a sense of humor, others with a great sense of artistic expression) and high-quality purchasable pieces from the displays. There’s also a great museum gift shop for souvenirs for friends and family back home. The gallery is located on the Quay in Westport and right across the street from plenty of restaurants and cafes.
