Bungalow / 4 bedrooms / sleeps 8
A beautifully presented, newly built, cottage style Bungalow in the picturesque village of Murrisk, Westport, County Mayo.
The house comprises of four large bedrooms, two of which are en suite. There is a large Kitchen diner, with enough seating to comfortably host a dinner setting of eight people. A Breakfast cook can be provided on request. There is a seperate utility room, a spacious yet cosy lounge with a traditional open fire and comfortably furnished sun room, which is the perfect space to enjoy a cup of tea in the morning, or a glass of wine to unwind in the evening whilst taking in the stunning landscape. The house has been finished to a high specification with Monsoon - multi jet showers as an example.
The house is situated in the shadow of Croagh Patrick and is a stones throw from the Clew Bay coastline. The village of Murrisk is known worldwide and receives high volumes of tourists, particularly in the summer months. The town of Westport annually receives the Tidy Towns accolade and was this year voted as Ireland's best town to visit. Murrisk teeters on the edge of the Atlantic ocean and has 3 beautiful, clean beaches within a very short drive. There are two local pubs within walking distance from the house each with a character you cannot miss. 'The Tavern' produces award winning dining that uses only local produce and fishing. You will receive a warm welcome from Myles and Ruth and it is guaranteed that you will not want to leave!
'Campbells' is a traditional family run establishment spanning generations and is perfectly positioned at the foot of the Mountain, opposite the National Famine Memorial Garden. You will not taste a finer pint of Guinness and the hospitality is exceptional.
The town of Westport is a modern, vibrant town that has something for every taste. Originally a Fishing town, heavily reflected along the Quay area, there are restaurants, bars and coffee houses. You can catch live music in a bar on most evenings and there are no shortages of places to eat from pub grub, curry houses and beautiful fish restaurants to fine dining. Through the summer months there are street festivals and a weekly market. Westport Golf Course is of a championship standard and there are many more to choose from within a short drive.
We are placed locally and can provide some water sport activities upon request. Jet Ski rides, Skiing, Wake/Knee Boarding and doughnut rides.
We are a family that has enjoyed Murrisk as a holiday settlement for a life time and simply wish for our guests to experience the delights that we have. We do hope you enjoy!

"Entertaining, but restul and scenic to."
Both my Partner and I enjoyed our stay in Westport immensely, although only a week's stay, there was plenty to see and do. The town centre is a quiet and picturesque by day and vibrant by night.
Ard na Mara house itself is located at what seems like a stone's throw from the foot of the wonder that is Croagh Patrick and has all the facilities you need to enjoy a break for couples or families. The house is comfortable, well furnished and very spacious.
Great break away, great accommodation and lovely town.
