This pleasant, modern hotel on the Quay in Westport overlooks the smooth, dreamy waters of Clew Bay and the mountains behind. It’s worth paying a little extra for a room with a view or a spacious suite if your budget will stretch to it. The Veda spa has plenty of affordable treatments, from an invigorating 15-minute Indian head massage for €20, to relaxing full body treatments for between €70 and €90. The top-floor restaurant, which looks out over the bay, serves tasty, crowd-pleasing fare (leg of lamb, roast chicken, steaks—you get the picture).
