As the locals would say, there are more bars in Westport than there are days in the year, so really there’s no excuse not to enjoy a pint of the good old black stuff when you’re in town. The Porterhouse and Cosy Joes are two local favorites with a low-key dress code and relaxed atmosphere that will work for even the tightest tourist budgets.
Some other pubs such as McGings and Matt Molloys are also top Westport choices, but expect to stand elbow-to-elbow with other patrons as the weekends can get packed. If you are looking to show off some of your best dance moves, head on over to the C2 nightclub after your drinks. First opened in 2006, it’s one of Westport’s top venues for the student crowd (don’t forget to get their early, too).
