“A Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

The location is tranquil with wonderful views and recommend it for walking, countryside and fishing. . Excellent breakfast, nothing too much trouble; catering no problem for individual requirements. Room clean, comfortable and well equipped. Many thanks to Tricia and Richard for making a memorable trip for us even more memorable. The extra personal touches which extended to giving us a card and a bottle of wine to celebrate a momentous event in our lives meant a great deal to us. We can't recommend Mountain View highly enough and we will return.

We had a lovely stay at this B and B, which is in a very quiet, peaceful area, with nice views. The rooms were comfortable and nicely furnished. Patricia is a great hostess - very welcoming, but not intrusive. The breakfast was delicious. We travelled with our 3 teenage children and she accommodated us in neighbouring rooms, all with our own beds, tea and coffee making facilities and modern comfortable ensuites. Patricia was very helpful with recommendations about local attractions and dining options. We really hope to return one day.

Terrific location and views directly on the river and easy walking distance to town center. Wonderful hosts, great breakfast overlooking the river and grounds. We were given a great recommendation for dinner and lots of good advice about touring the Ring of Kerry.

If i'm exploring the Connemara area this is the only place i will stay. My visits would be years apart but Patricia, Dickie and their son Liam always remember me and treat me like an old family friend. I stayed here again during the weekend of the local marathon and they pulled out all the stops, not just for me but for all the other participants staying there too. The room i had in the B&B is better than some of the many hotels i've stayed in and it has a very convenient location, just off the main road to either Galway (13 miles) or Oughterard itself (1.5miles). Don't let the proximity to the main road worry regarding traffic as i didn't hear a thing. As you may have guessed, i would highly recommend Mountain View for anyone staying in this area and hope to stay again a 4th time myself.

We had a great experience here! Warm, cozy, comfortable room, delicious breakfasts, quiet location but near the village. Tricia and Richard were gracious hosts. High school aged son, Liam, was very knowledgeable about Irish history and gave us great recommendations on places to see off the beaten path of tourist attractions. We stayed 6 nights and saw much of western Ireland with day trips from this central location. Above and beyond expectations. We plan to return next year. Highly recommend this B&B...we give them 5 stars!
