The Old Coastguard Station, Westport is a fascinating building where you can learn about the life and times of the Coastguard in Ireland.

The Station lies 8km north west of Westport Town, with panoramic views a cross Clew Bay to Croagh Patrick. Between 1879 and 1921 the Coastguard Station has been home to 12 coastguard families.

James Cahill, the present owner, is in the process of restoring the buildings which now houses an exhibition of research undertaken on the history of the Coastguard in Ireland. There is also a display of 12 Currachs (traditional Irish canvas and tar covered boats).
