LOCATION
The Quay Cottage, once probably Westport's most acclaimed and best known restaurant which commenced its history nearly 35 years ago from a small cottage residence, converted by its current owners into a small quayside restaurant in Westport Harbour, adjacent to the main entrance to Westport House. From here, one overlooks an inlet of the harbour, which accesses Westport Demesne, including the old Westport House boat house and the shore fronting parklands, which surround.

DESCRIPTION
The property was previously refurbished and extended and has a seating capacity of circa 70/75, an external courtyard that can cater for outdoor dining, a modern commercial kitchen and a toilet block to the rear, while on the upper floor; there are offices and staff facilities which lends itself to a residential conversion. In addition, there are car parking spaces to the rear of the premises.

Subsequent to refurbishment, the restaurant maintained its 'cottage theme', which was enhanced by many stone features including a stone archway recovered from 'Mount Jennings', the former home of the late Delia Murphy at Hollymount. The cottage theme creates a relaxed and charming atmosphere where old and new blend with great ease.

Having traded successfully for decades, the owners have now decided to put the property up for sale, thus presenting a unique opportunity to prospective purchasers to acquire a fine property in a premier location at the entrance to Westport House, the towns most visited attraction.

The front faade of the building is listed as a protected structure under Buildings of Ireland
(Reg No 31211056)
