We really enjoyed our stay at the Mountain View! We had a family room--although it was not huge, it was not too small. The room was very clean and nicely decorated with very comfortable beds. Patricia is a very professional and gracious host, her cousin is very kind and funny, and her husband and son were extremely helpful when we had a flat tyre! (As an aside, if you ever have a flat tyre in the Oughterard area, Tommy Tuck is the man to see! Great, fast, friendly service.) The breakfasts were great. Our previous B&B was in the middle of a town and was noisy at night--Mountain View is a few km outside of town, so it was wonderfully quiet--we slept extremely well. As one review noted, there is not really a "mountain" view, but it is set in a lovely countryside area. Between the comfortable room, the yummy breakfasts, and the extreme kindness of the hosts, I could have stayed there much longer than our 3 nights. Bonus: The WiFi reception and speed was probably the best of all 7 places we stayed on this trip. (The only downside for us was that the nearby town of Oughterard itself is limited in its dining options, and they are all pretty expensive!) As for the Mountain View itself, it was wonderful!
