Elmgrove lies in on The Wild Atlantic Way, in a scenic, peaceful location adjacent to Croagh Patrick in County Mayo. Elmgrove offers bed and breakfast accommodation and is an ideal walking and touring base for The Great Western Greenway.
Elmgrove bed and breakfast accommodation is located in the village of Murrisk, eight kilometres from Westport town. From the front door, it is a two minute walk to the beginning of the walking trail ascending Croagh Patrick. Croagh Patrick, nicknamed the Reek, is a 764 metre-high mountain and an important site of religious pilgrimage in Ireland.
Elmgrove also stands on The Great Western Way - the longest off-road walking and cycling trail in Ireland. The World Class Great Western Greenway is a traffic-free cycling and walking trail which follows the route of the renowned Westport to Achill railway which closed in 1937.
A number of beaches, pubs, and restaurants lie nearby. There is a range of activities in the area, from visiting those restaurants, bars, or cafés, to fishing, or for the more adventurous, climbing the heights above the villages, walking the hills, or horse-riding. After a day out and about, there is evening entertainment in the area. All of these are within walking distance of Elmgrove.
Elmgrove is an ideal location for touring Connemara, Achill Island, Clare Island and the West of Ireland. The town of Westport is 10 minutes drive away, and both Knock and Galway Airports are one-and-a-half-hours' drive. The choice is open for guests.
