Mountain View Guesthouse
Ranked #4 of 23 Oughterard B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2013

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!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mountain View! We had a family room--although it was not huge, it was not too small. The room was very clean and nicely decorated with very comfortable beds. Patricia is a very professional and gracious host, her cousin is very kind and funny, and her husband and son were extremely helpful when we had a flat tyre! (As an aside, if you ever have a flat tyre in the Oughterard area, Tommy Tuck is the man to see! Great, fast, friendly service.) The breakfasts were great. Our previous B&B was in the middle of a town and was noisy at night--Mountain View is a few km outside of town, so it was wonderfully quiet--we slept extremely well. As one review noted, there is not really a "mountain" view, but it is set in a lovely countryside area. Between the comfortable room, the yummy breakfasts, and the extreme kindness of the hosts, I could have stayed there much longer than our 3 nights. Bonus: The WiFi reception and speed was probably the best of all 7 places we stayed on this trip. (The only downside for us was that the nearby town of Oughterard itself is limited in its dining options, and they are all pretty expensive!) As for the Mountain View itself, it was wonderful!

A nice and clean b and b, quiet, lovely host and good breakfast but a bit ordinary for us.

We expected to be in the mountains, or at least the countryside with a view of mountains but were disappointed that the location was just off the main road.

The room was a bit dark due to the windows being built into the roof and for ventilation we needed to open the window in the bathroom and leave the door open.

Breakfast was fine.

PROS:
1) the hosts were very good.
2) food was good.
3) the location, although a bit out of the town has its own charm.

CONS:

1) stayed is a triple room. We felt the room was a bit small and we felt crowded. The bathroom is big though.
The room would have been nice as a double bed one.

Did not want to stay right in Galway, so this was a great spot for a night over. Room was clean, we had a twin and queen bed. Patricia very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic, with our choice of main meal. The views in the yard are incredible. The gift shop in the village is outstanding with a great selection at reasonable prices!
