We stayed here 2 nights and loved it. The room was spacious and comfortable, bathroom was good and the breakfast was excellent! Not to mention the great hostess who was so nice :-) She guided us to a wonderful spot overlooking the lake while enjoying the sunny weather!

Stayed here for the 2nd time while participating in the 2017 Connemarathon. This is a great B&B in a quiet location just outside Oughterard (which is a great wee place not far from Galway with some really decent restaurants). The rooms at Mountain View are very comfortable and en-suite. The breakfast is very good with both continental and full Irish...

We arrived to Mountain View Guesthouse feeling weary after a long day travelling by road from Kerry and Patricia was waiting to warmly welcome my friends and I into her cosy B & B. We were completely satisfied with everything from the clean, comfortable rooms and important details such as tea making facilities and hairdryer to the high quality sheets...

The Mountain View B&B was a great place to stay. It was very near the village of Oughterard, outside Galway. Patricia, the host, was extremely friendly and accommodating. The full Irish fry-up was an amazing breakfast, and there were cereals, breads, and juice as well. Rooms were clean, as were the en suite bathrooms. We especially liked the countryside setting,...
