Galway Bay is a large bay on the west of Ireland, and it is home to a traditional fishing boat dubbed the "Galway hooker." Hooker is a term that refers to a few different types of boats. The largest of which is called the Bád Mór (Bad Mor), at 35 to 44 feet. These boats historically would carry bog turf to be used as fuel to heat homes in the nearby communities. Today the boats can still be found racing across the bay, particularly at the annual festival of Cruinniú na mBád.

An Excellent Take on Bay Rum
The soap loaded very easily out of the tub, as with other products of theirs - and a slick, protective lather was easily produced. The scent of both soap and matching aftershave is lovely - lots of Allspice and clove up top, and it settles into a very nice, spicy and warm afterglow. I've just shaved an hour ago, so I can't comment on longevity, but it's a very nice scent that's definitely with me still. The post-shave face feel, too, is absolutely superb.
Great start to St. Patrick’s Day!
Shared this on damnfineshave’s thread (What Soap/Cream did you use today?) before seeing M&M’s review coupon email. Completely motivated by my own obsession with all things wet shaving. The coupon is just an after thought bonus. “ Murphy & McNeil’s “Bad Mor”. A really great Bay Rum. I’ll be honest, at first I wasn’t a fan of the scent as I’m more inclined towards straight up Bay Rums or those that lean towards clove notes (blasphemy for some). After giving it a try, I pick up a semi sweet, almost fruity allspice and the lather is a moist, almost gooey, thick, and luscious lather. Made three passes worth with enough to probably have done fourth. So, far that’s the most I’ve experienced of the limited amount of soaps I’ve used. I’m glad I gave it a shot and look forward to their Sláinte set, which I’m really anxious to try now.”
Perfect All Around
Amazing customer service that fits in perfectly with an amazing product. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
Top Notch Bay Rum !
I have tried many Bay Rum scented shaving soaps & creams through the years and I have to say that this is among the best ! It has the perfect balance, not too sweet and not too spicy ….. just right. My shaving experience with this soap is amazing. Plenty of rich thick lather that provides a perfect combination of cushion and also slickness. Post shave is top notch as well, and the scent lingers for awhile, which is nice. I absolutely recommend this shaving soap for all those who love the scent of Bay Rum, you won't be dissappointed !
NICE SCENT WONDERFUL PRODUCT GREAT FACE FELL
