Brian and Claire couldn't be more welcoming. I was passing through the are and stayed for a night. The garden was beautiful the bed comfortable and the breakfast satisfying. Perfectly located between town and the Tollymore Forest park.

We only stayed one night after attending a wedding in the area, & booked last minute.
Owners Brian & Claire are Very welcoming and helpful. Accommodation is an extension onto their property was remodelled from an old building about 10 years ago , comprises of a spacious living room with dining table for the guests and direct access to this and the bedrooms means you can come go without disturbing the owners or feel you are encroaching on the space.
The 2 bedrooms very clean & comfortable, one Twin & one Double both with own en-suites (Great shower loads of pressure & hot water ! ) . We only stayed one night but the layout would be great if you are staying few days and have your "own space" to relax and chill in the evenings with a wood burning stove and comfy Settees. Breakfast was plentiful from fresh juice , cereal, Yoghurts etc with homemade bread & a beautiful Irish Fry made freshly to order, Would we stay again YES !

Anne and myself spent 3 memorable nights at Mountain View B&B, we found the facilities very good, spick and span and the food delicious. Brian and Claire were very helpful and made us feel at home. We especially enjoyed the personal touches i.e. special tea and home baked treats daily. The location was ideal and what a view from our bedroom, plenty of information from Brian and Claire of where and what to do in the area. We highly recommend this accommodation as it is of a very high standard. We will pass on your regards to Joan and Joe

We were so pleased that you both enjoyed your stay with us. Three days is a good length of time to explore the surrounding area and you certainly managed to see a lot during your visit to Newcastle. It is very satisfying to know that you were recommended by previous guests. Thank you for your wonderful review.

We spent 4 nights in this beautiful B&B during our walking holidays in the Mourne Mountains. Upon arrival we received tea and delicious cake and lots of information about the vicinity, walks (f.i. how to reach the starting points, maps,...), places to eat (the Maghera Inn: quality food at reasonable prices, only five minutes by car, we had 3 of our 4 meals there) .The twin room we stayed in was very beautiful, spacious (separate dressing) with very good beds and all necessary requirements. Rooms are situated in the back garden, so there was no noise at all during our whole stay. We highly recommend the cooked breakfast and packed lunches which provided us enough energy to tackle our walks.
Throughout our whole stay Claire and Brian took plenty of time to answer all our questions or give us tips or ask us how the walk has been during the day, which we appreciated a lot.
By there personalised and friendly approach Claire and Brian made us feel like home and through this way I want to congratulate them with their excellent B&B.

You both certainly did a lot of walking in the mountains; even though the weather was not great on your second day you still made a brilliant effort climbing Binian. We loved having you both stay with us and thanks for the terrific review.
