We found the hosts Richard and Patricia very friendly and through internet booking we were offered a very good rate for a three night stay. The room we had was clean, quiet and comfortable, but cramped for two people with luggage, and cold at night when the radiators were turned off. Our room had no special view, just the garden and parked cars.

We drove from Spiddal via Clifden, Connemara National Park and Kylemore Abbey and easily found Mountain View Guesthouse. We were greeted very warmly by Patricia and Richard and enjoyed some freshly brewed coffee and home made scones. Our room was a good size and very clean and warm. Breakfast was marvellous. Patricia and Richard were excellent hosts who recommended nearby restaurants and pubs, all within easy walking distance. They also gave good advice on what to see in the area. We would definately stay again.

We booked Mountain View based on the reviews received and what a brilliant choice.
Patricia made us feel so welcome and recommended a lovely pub in the village where we enjoyed a quality, cheap meal.
The view from our room was lovely, and the room was absolutely spotless. The radiators were lovely and warm and there was constant hot water for a long soak in the bath.
Breakfast was beautiful and I think its the first time in ages that we've come away from somewhere without having anything negative to say at all!!
The other thing that really stood out was how clean Mountain View is, I tried to do my "Four in a bed" check and could not find one speck of dust anywhere. I even noticed that Patricia kept popping into the dining room to clean the filter coffee pot (fabulous coffee from my coffeeholic husband and a lovely American man called Bob!).

We would have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse and two guesses where we will be staying on our next visit to Galway??

Thanks Patricia, really enjoyed the stay.

Stayed at the mountain view for 3 nights., wish it had been 30! The nicest experience of the trip! The propierters (Richard and Patricia) went out of there way to make us feel special, the food was out of this world and the scenery magnificent. Will definately be back and will recommend the mountain view to everyone in Switzerland. Yolanda Bern, Switzerland

The Mountain view was a nice place to stay while visiting Oughterard. Patricia was very helpful on where to go in town and places to visit. Will stay there again when visiting. Great place if looking for peace and quite. Good location if you are seeing the sites, made for easy day trips throughout the area. Would like to thank the Mountain View and Patricia for helping to make our visit warm and welcoming. See you soon...
