The inspection was carried out by the Environmental Protection Agency, after cryptosporidium was detected in the public water supply earlier this month.
A boil water notice for 46,500 people across a huge area of Co Mayo remains in place.
The Drinking Water Audit, published this morning by the EPA, says there is no evidence that filters at the plant failed in the weeks prior to the detection of cryptosporidium.
The report notes that filtration management has improved at the plant since a previous inspection in May 2015. Following that audit, EPA inspectors found there was a risk of cryptosporidium entering the supply, if it was present in untreated water.
At the time, the EPA said there were significant issues in the performance of some filters, which required urgent attention.
Irish Water says ongoing sampling of the water supply has not found any further presence of cryptosporidium since it was first detected, almost two weeks ago.
The boil notice applies to the public supply in and around the towns of Ballinrobe, Westport, Castlebar, Claremorris, Ballyhaunis and Knock.
Almost 50 Group Water Schemes are also subject to the warning.
