Murrisk is a unique village on the west coast of Ireland. Situated in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain, its history is inextricably linked to that of the mountain which has been a place of worship and pilgrimage for thousands of years.
The village has a rich heritage with several significant archaeological sites, a 15th century Abbey and a national memorial commemorating the Irish Famine. This heritage combined with its location on the Atlantic coast has made the village a popular tourist destination.
Murrisk benefits from the award winning Tavern bar and restaurant and the iconic Museum pub Campbells ( A must after climbing Croagh Patrick).
