My friend and I stayed in Mountain View Bed and Breakfast for the weekend whilst hiking in the Mourne Mountains and I can honestly say it is one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed in. Brian and Claire are wonderful hosts and from the moment we arrived their warm welcome and offer of tea and scones made us...

We only stayed with Brian & Claire for two nights but from the first moment were made to feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble from help taking in our luggage, to fresh coffee, tea & conversation in a beautiful garden looking out at Slieve Donnard. The breakfasts were tasty, delicious & fresh and are enough to set you...

It was most upsetting that your sister was not well during your time with us but after a days rest she seemed much better for your journey down south to the Wicklow Mountains.

This accommodation is simply one of the best in northern Ireland. The B&B has its own website - always good reassurance - which provides easy guidance and information about where Mountain View is located. It is on the way into Newcastle (right hand side) and indeed we were surprised how easy it was to find. Located on the opposite side...
