Riverbank Guesthouse is located in the popular mature residential neighbourhood of Rosbeg, being approximately 1.5 miles west of Westport. Rosbeg can be accessed from the Quay Road via what is commonly known as River Bank Road, or alternatively off the main Louisburgh/Westport Road, known as the West Road. As said, this is a mature residential area with a number of high quality residences within the vicinity. The Westport Harbour, with its many fine bars, restaurants and shops, is located a relatively short distance away and could be walked. Further afield is the town centre of Westport with a host of exceptional business, retail and leisure facilities. Westport is a hugely popular coastal town located on the Atlantic coast of County Mayo. It attracts a huge number of visitors and tourists annually. It benefits from a number of key employers including Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Mayo County Council and Port West, together with excellent road and rail infrastructure. Westport offers a compelling lifestyle appeal with a host of excellent recreational facilities including fishing, sailing, surfing and championship golf.


Riverbank is a well known former licensed Guesthouse, which was extended in 1973 from a two storey period house and which is the front section fronting onto to the main public road. This dates from 1880 and is a stone-built two storey structure with a slate roof. At the western end of the development there is a substantial extension under a flat roof. In total there are upwards of 9 en-suite guest bedrooms and the property was run very successfully as a guest house over a considerable time period. It has been dormant for a number of years and requires extensive refurbishment throughout. This property provides the potential to convert back into a guesthouse or for private domestic purposes or, indeed, alternative uses subject to Planning Permission. The property is being offered for sale on a total site area of 0.18 Hectares (0.44 Acres) with lands to the rear of the property and an addtional area of lands on the opposite side of the public road. Full maps are available on request.


We understand the property is connected to all main services, including water, electricity and sewage.
