Exploring Westport, A Day in Pictures

Another day, another dollar 🙂

You wake up, take a shower, have some breakfast and you’re out the door to work.

Into the car, automatically turn on the radio to your usual channel and before you know it, you begin your days work as you have so many others.

8 hours pass and as you drive home, all you want is to eat and sleep.

Every day, it’s the same story.

Repetition, repetition, repetition.

It is not good for your soul.

We are conscious of this. We know deep down we have to take care of our mental and spiritual needs. We need to replenish our souls with healthy foods, fresh air and nature, but sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the day to day.

Healthy breakfasts, random smiles, deep breaths, time spent with hobbies – these are more important to each of us than we know (but we know)

So one day, you decide to go for a stroll.

You break your routine and let the wind and fresh air guide you.

You watch rows of green fields instead of rows of cars.

You wake up your senses with the smell of nature instead of a petrol station.

You listen to the birds singing not politicians ranting.

You decide you want to be free.

You decide to take a much-deserved stroll around Westport.

Westport is blessed with a calming inner spirit surrounded by an active energy.

Walk along the oceanside, climb its hills, relax with a coffee or enjoy a beer – the traditional way.

Because Westport is a ‌town‌ ‌with‌ ‌more‌ ‌life‌‌ than‌ ‌most cities. Nurtured‌ ‌by‌ ‌‌ ‌summer‌ ‌tourism‌ ‌the‌ ‌sun‌ ‌constantly dances across the big Atlantic sky creating ethereal‌ ‌landscapes worthy‌ ‌of‌ ‌being‌ ‌photographed.‌ ‌


A perfect setting to create a deserved rest 😉

Day 1

Maybe you start with a creamy latte in O’Cees coffee shop at 8 am.

Being the first in you sit by the window, (because you’re smart like that 😉

Sitting by the window you will watch the world go by as the town and it’s inhabitants come to life.

We need a connection to nature, so we hit the greenway.

Watch as early birds catch the worms. They’re bouncing flighty enthusiasm distils into you and you decide to stroll to The Quay.

Surrounded by nature and gorgeous scenery you are then hit by the delightful aroma of the Atlantic Ocean.

A pedestrian recommends The Creel, a cosy cafe where you order a deserved water and a freshly baked, takeaway scone.

Today is a day to stand on the edge staring out at sea.

Walking on with coffee and carbs bursting through you discover Aughavale cemetery. You are reminded of the past and know you should take more pleasure in the present.

When you arrive at the location you will discover Aughavale cemetery. a place that will impose you respect. A lot of past lives rest in it a big meadows since there you can see the Groagh Patrick Mountain.

Walking on you experience Roman island, its history, beauty and splendid panoramic views.

Day 2

You awake to feel slightly more alive.

You begin to enjoy the feeling of energy.

You decide to try a continental breakfast in Knockranny hotel while watching Westport rise.

From your table, you see Croagh Patrick, and you think, will I?

Climbing Croagh Patrick would be crazy, but you do decide to rent a bike and cycle to the foot of the mountain.

You finish your healthy breakfast and before you know you’re pedalling past the picturesque world of Westport.

Arriving at Croagh Patrick you walk to the man himself, Saint Patrick. Standing below him, you see the inviting mountain behind him.

Taking some food from your backpack, you decide to just put one foot in front of the other; just for a little while.

Breathing, walking and listening to your favourite podcast you reach the summit. Getting out into the fresh air and pushing your body to feel alive is not as tricky as you thought it was.

When you go down to come back to your favorite hostel, you see a magic sunset and you feel an inmense happiness.

Returning down, with a feeling of contentment you enjoy a sunset for the first time in a while.

You feel good.
