About the property

Bungalow in Murrisk, Westport, County Mayo, Ireland - Elevated Site, Sea Across The Road, 15 Minutes Walk To Pier And Coastal Walk To Murrisk Abbey

Sitting in the foothills of Croagh Patrick and overlooking Clew bay, Gortmore is a 3 bedroom detached bungalow with fabulous views in every direction. Completed in 1999 the bungalow is modern, well planned, bright, airy and spacious. Sitting on its own site it is not overlooked and has direct access to the main Westport-Loiusburgh road. The property is located in Murrisk village which is 6 kms from Westport, a town identified by the Irish Times in 2012 as "the best place to live in Ireland". Our guests have been families looking for safe friendly accommodation, active walkers, golfers, fishermen, cyclists, and artists as well as those simply looking for peace, tranquil views and relaxation.

About Mary Clark

I designed and built Gortmore in 1999 and try to visit as much as possible as I have strong family ties in Murrisk and love the countryside but I live in Leeds for most of the year.

Mary Clark purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Mary Clark chose Ireland

My family come from Murrisk and although I was brought up in Northern Ireland, I find County Mayo such a beautiful county. I chose the site because of the wonderful views over Clew Bay from the Living Room, bedroom and kitchen. The dining room has a great view of the pilgrimage mountain, Croagh Patrick. The bungalow was designed to be very light and airy.

It is just off the main Westport- Lousisburgh Road so no-one has difficuly finding it. At the same time it is completely private on its own elevated site.

What makes this bungalow unique

All my visitors are very impressed with the views and with the kitchen. Sometimes they arrive at night and waken up to a complete mirror imagine reflection of nearby Murrisknabol in Clew Bay.

On the practical side the kitchen has every modern convenience and it is spacious so that on a big occasion several people can cook at once.

The living room is really the quiet room, but does contain the modern TV with Free Sat.

Wireless Internet is the most recent addition enabling me to keep in touch with family back in Leeds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

January 21, 2013 Name: Richard & Margaret Cyster Town: Harrogate Country: United Kingdom

Have enjoyed staying at Gortmore for many years. Always plenty to do - not least the challenge of ascending Croagh Patrick - not for the faint-hearted!

December 24, 2012 Name: Chris & Liz Town: Leeds Country: England

We have stayed at Gortmore many times and have always thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The bungalow is comfortable and well located. The area is particularly scenic and Westport always gives us a warm welcome with its lively atmosphere.

August 16, 2012 Name: Carole Town: Bangor Country: N. Ireland

A delightful comfortable bungalow with all amenities. The views over Clew Bay must be the most scenic on the coast of Co. Mayo.

We (2 adults + 2 teenagers) spent a week in Gortmore in August 2014 and all of us loved it.

The bungalow was so comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Our teenagers were particularly delighted with the Wi-Fi! There were magnificent views in all directions that with the ever-changing light continuously delighted and surprised us.

The location was excellent for discovering Mayo and Connemara, especially Clew Bay, Croagh Patrick and Achill Island. And the beautiful town of Westport is only a 15 minute drive away.

All four of us would have been happy to have had longer here, a week was too short!

I cannot recommend this lovely house highly enough.

I have been visiting the bungalow in Murrisk since 2001, first with my mum, then with my friend and also with my sister. Since retiring I have returned several times each year. It's just like coming home. The bungalow is comfortable and we find everything we need for a relaxing break.. The beds (all single) are very comfortable and the excellent heating makes the bungalow cosy in all weathers. We've been there in all kinds of weather at all times of the year.For sunny days some outdoor furniture would be nice.

The views from the kitchen are truly amazing, changing with the weather and the passing clouds. I've never encountered such a view!

Also, out the back is a superb view of Croagh Patrick.

The village of Murrisk is very handy for daily trips to Westport which is a great town for shopping and eating out. We love McCormack's for coffee but there's a huge choice.

We always go to Connemara for a day - via Louisbourg and on to Leenaun and Clifden. The views are best driving from this direction. Trips can be made to Renvile, Letterfrack, the Famine Loop etc. These are places with great character and wonderful scenery. Walking on nearby Bertra beach and Carrowmore (turn right at Louisbourgh crossroads and right again after about half a mile) are a must. For a woodland walk try nearby Brackloon. There's good information at the Tourist Info shop in Westport. Cyclists are very well catered for in the area.

A day spent walking on Clare Island is worthwhile and of course Achill Island is worth the drive.

By now you'll realise I love the place and at times when we couldn't get into Mary's we went to other houses and apartments. None of these attracted us as much. I think it must be the house itself, the care shown by Tom who checks to see we are okay and the fantastic Irish scenery. You'll not regret choosing Mary's bungalow! I'd highly recommend it.
