The Westport Woods Hotel has been benchmarked against other green hotels both domestic and international for environmental best practice. It matches up very well and leads in many and can truly be defined as a world class environmentally managed business.
The hotel grounds have some adventure activities amongst the trees. One area has a volley-ball court and is also suitable for games like stuck-in-the-mud, dodgeball, running, football etc. The zip wire is really popular and suitable for a wide age group. Archery is great funfor all ages, a chance to be William Tell for a day. Next up will be some target practice with air-rifles. The high ropes course and climbing wall appeal to teens but anyone can have a go – want to challenge yourself?
