The business and political leaders of Wesport deserve credit for their work over the decades in tourism and its sad to see such misplaced begrudgery on this site towards the town.
Westport has physical advantages Castlebar will never have. Its a planned town, closer to Connemara and the sea and islands, the sorts of places tourists want to visit.
However it doesn't rival Castlebar in terms of retail, but then again Castlebar has always been a "market" town, and consequently our business and political leaders have focused on that. You can argue the merits of this and how well they've done but thats not Westports fault.
