The pictures really do not do Pat Mors justice, the views from the front garden are simply beautiful and given a small amount of effort, the views afforded from the numerous peaks, that essentially form the back garden are breath taking.
We visited Pat Mors cottage with our 3 year old labrador (Doug) and will certainly return. The Cottage simply oozes rustic charm, the centerpiece being the wood burning stove and impressive surrounding stone hearth. The master bedroom was warm and comfortable and with two further bedrooms upstairs, Pat Mors would also suit two couples or a small family. The kitchen is well equipped and we would certainly recommend bringing some ground coffee for the coffee machine, as nothing beats the smell and taste of returning from a morning walk to a hot, freshly brewed pot of coffee.
Exiting a gate in the back garden affords access to open, hillside fields, of grazing sheep, that you are free to explore (Doug kept on his lead!). The surrounding peaks provide stunning views of the three surrounding loughs. This was perfectly located to allow for an early morning walk, (to build up an appetite for an alfresco breakfast, overlooking Lough Mask and surrounding peaks) or to burn off an evening meal and work up a thirst for a glass of wine in front of the wood burner.
The surrounding Counties of Galway and Mayo were full of varied activities and views, that we were not even close to scraping the surface of. William, the owner of Pat Mors, was not only extremely friendly and very hospitable but was a fountain of knowledge as to where to go and what to see and do.
Walking out of the cottage in the morning and being met by the sound of birdsong and the trickling of water from one of the nearby streams (and no cars!!!!) was a refreshing contrast to the hustle and bustle of our normal surrounding. On a clear night the lack of light pollution made for amazing views of the moon and stars that you would be hard pressed to find in many places back in the UK.
We could not recommend this location highly enough and we will certainly be returning in the near future. The cottage was warm, comfortable and cosy and the surroundings were perfect. …

great property but spoiled by road noise
very clean property and the view is fantastic from the back, the village is lovely and people very friendly. the thing that lets it down is the noise from the road of all the lorry's that pass through the town, from around 7am they start, they slacken off a bit around 10am but still keep going all day.
we discovered this on a very wet day when we stayed indoors most of it..and the locals told us that it has got worse this year..its a pity because it is a great base from where to see Galway/Mayo,,but if you don't have many late nights and are up and away before 7 in the morning and not back till after 7 in the evening then its brilliant …
