Absolutely lovely little inn. We were looking for something a bit more remote during this leg of our trip, and the Mountain View perfectly fit the bill. Patricia made us feel instantly welcome. Aughnanure Castle (impressive) is just minutes away by car as is the town of Oughterard. Patricia's dinner recommendations were right on point. Breakfast was the best we had at any B&B during our trip in Ireland. We would absolutely come back and stay here again.
We arrived at the Mountain View Guesthouse to a warm welcome from Patricia, the proprietor. Our room, on the 2nd floor, was spacious & spit spot clean with a beautiful view of the pasture. The room did not have a USB port. Make sure you pack an adapter & charger. I will say that the shower was nice and hot and the water pressure strong! The guesthouse is 2 minutes to the Oughterard shops & restaurants. Morning breakfast was perfect. They offer a continental breakfast, Traditional Irish breakfast & eggs & bacon/sausage. If you like a good strong dark coffee, you are going to enjoy your morning at the Mountain View Guesthouse.
Great place to stay , the rooms are very well maintained , spacey , with all the little extra bits you would get in a hotel . The breakfast menu is one of the best I've seen for a guesthouse , lots of choice on offer , and everything served is of high quality . Thank you Patricia for the warm welcome and all the attention towards your guests .
Loved our stay! After our extremely long travel day we were welcomed into the B&B with smiles. Room was great for 4 people and bathroom shower had amazing water pressure. Quiet/relaxing atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious both days. Patricia was extremely friendly and suggested places to visit in the area, which all ended up being highlights of our trip. Highly recommend staying at this facility.
The room was super clean, has a lot of comfort items to make you feel at home,very comfortable, and the owner Patricia was amazing. She went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend this guesthouse for anyone visiting Connemara. She was extremely accommodating and served our breakfast earlier, as we had early ferry to go to Aran islands. So this was a big plus. The service was exceptional as well. Would definitely send a friend there. Great location, easy to get in and out of the city. The guesthouse is well maintained. The beds were very firm, too firm for my liking. The breakfast was too good, felt like staying at the parents house. I, especially, enjoyed the view of the sunset.
Very friendly hosts and in quiet location a short drive from the nearby town which hosts an excellent bar / restaurant called Powers Thatched Bar and Restaurant. Breakfast was very good and Patricia was very attentive.
My wife and I stayed at the Mountain View Guesthouse in Galway for eight nights. We would return any day. Patricia was so kind, helpful and resourceful. The house itself is beautiful, spotless, and has all the facilities travellers require. Wi-fi is very good. The surroundings are great and we had no problems finding the place on our smart phones. There's enough parking space for everyone and breakfast is very good, even for a vegetarian (almost vegan) like myself. There are a couple of nice places for dinner up the road in Oughterard. We discussed our day trips with our hosts and they provided invaluable tips. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
We stayed here for one night while traveling through the area. Rooms were clean, tea service in room, free Wi-Fi, location quiet, and price was right. Mountain View checked all the required boxes for a one night stay and we would have been happy if the list ended there. But there was a bonus, Patricia! Patricia is an excellent host and made us feel very welcome in her home. She was interested in where we had been and where we were going, offered helpful hints for our travels, provided driving times between destinations, etc. In the morning she served an excellent hot cooked breakfast and helped us get back on our way. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Patricia for the warm welcome.
My wife and I recently stayed here, and oh my goodness!! The place is great fun and the hosts are so accommodating. The helped with bussing and even got us back to town today so we could catch the bus. We will be recommending the Guesthouse to anyone who may ask about Oughterard. And the Irish breakfast was one of the best we have had on our entire stay. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to stay here with beautiful scenery in abundance and town being a short 1.5km walk you will never be without something to do.
I consider myself a pretty good navigator, but armed with a map and a GPS, it took us a while to find the Mountain View Guesthouse. The problem with finding it (as with a number of other places) was the fact that many addresses in Ireland lack a street number. Our GPS was not old but had no way of plugging in coordinates for latitude and longitude. Asking local residents gave us a number of different directions and luckily we happened upon one woman who knew the Guesthouse well and directed us correctly. Trisha was a wonderful hostess, providing us with a very quiet, clean, comfortable and out of the way room, a delicious breakfast and a warm and welcoming dining area where we ended up trading travel stories with some of the other residents. Nicely located about twenty minutes out of Galway it was the perfect place to stay in a quiet, rural setting. Highly recommended.…
