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!

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!
