We always enjoy having you both stay with us and enjoy catching up with the news since your last visit. We have just come back from a holiday which is why we have taken so long to reply to your very kind comments. At the moment we are having our B&B re-painted, new carpets put down and some of the...

Mountain View Bed and Breakfast was an absolutely spectacular place to stay. Brian and Claire offer rooms for a very reasonable price and the interior and exterior of the B and B was picturesque. They obviously cooked up a storm in the kitchen as breakfast was of an excellent standard and cooked to perfection.

The MountainView BnB was really a dream experience in terms of service, quality, food, friendliness of the owners and location in the Mourne Mountins. There is really nothing to complain and we were 200% happy with the overall experience. It was so nice that we would go back for more weekend trips! Brian & Claire are really exceptionally friendly people...
