It's lovely to hear that you will be over with us later this year!
There are indeed several regional tourist offices
all over the island of Ireland where you can pop in for information on places to see and also accommodation recommendations. We would always recommend booking the first and last place to stay so that you are sure of the perfect place to stay at these important times. Lots of people who have pre-made itineraries do indeed book all of them ahead of time to be sure they stay where they want.
Late August/September is still a busy time with us, but if your plans are fluid and you want to decide on the day where to stay, we have a wonderful approved accommodation
search page that may be of interest. I have pre-selected Galway and B&B to get you started, please feel free to change the location and type from the drop-down menus. It is also possible to ask the B&B hosts for their recommendations as they usually know of other places available to try.
What have you decided to see and do in and around the Galway/ Westport areas so far?
