About the neighbourhood
Murrisk is a picturesque and historical village very popular with tourists all year round. I'm walking distance is a pier and shoreline. There is the National Famine memorial and garden, the ruins of an abbey and you can walk along the shore to Bertra Beach (sandy).
The village itself boasts two pub/restaurants. Campbell's is a very traditional old Irish 'museum' pub. It does very. Ice bar food and is at the start of the ascent up Croagh Patrick. The Tavern is an award winning restaurant - the food is Beautiful and the atmosphere friendly.
There is a visitor centre with cafe and gift shop at the foot of the mountain. There are numerous fishing trips available from nearby Old Head.
Getting around
A car is recommended however car hire is cheap. There is a designated cycle lane from Westport town linking louisburgh and beyond and the views are amazing.

How to get there
You are following signs for the town of Louisburgh. You will naturally drive through the village of Murrisk.

When in Murrisk village (you willl know as you will be underneath the mountain and there are clear signs), you are looking for a public house on your left hand side called 'The Tavern'. It is a clearly visible purple building. There is a small single carriageway directly opposite. Take this road to the end where you will arrive at a T junction. Turn left and you will drive almost directly into Ardna Mara as the road bends around.

From Knock International Airport - Head for signs for Castlebar (N5).

Then head for Westport
Then head for Louisburgh.
