A Secluded old Cottage in the Middle of Nowhere

Don’t get me wrong, when I say ‘in the middle of nowhere’ above, I mean it in the BEST possible way.

Pat Mor’s cottage can be found in Finny in Mayo, just over an hours drive from Galway City.

Although it’s in Mayo, the cottage is the perfect base for exploring, well, all the best parts of Galway.

Here’s a detailed 3-day Galway road trip guide for those of you thinking about staying here.

Pat Mor’s Cottage is the secluded hideaway that I need in my life

Honestly, what’s not to love about this place.

The cottage is a 120-year-old restored structure that’s situated in a scenic and secluded part of Mayo.

Surrounded by lakes, mountains and oodles of natural beauty, it’s an ideal base for those looking to explore Galway and Mayo.

This is the view from the cottage…

I’m also a little bit in love with the lane that leads up to it ??

If you aren’t already sold, the review below, which was posted on Airbnb, should just about push you over the edge;

“The cottage is the perfect break from it all. It is the quintessential cosy Irish cottage, ideal for unwinding and just living without the rush of technology and business.”
