We stayed here first of August and had a wonderful experience. Patricia was most accommodating and Richard makes a great and hardy Irish breakfast. They were very helpful with giving us travel recommendations and guidance. We highly recommend and will stay here again! Thanks a bunch!!.

This was our first stop on our first family visit to Ireland and what a perfect stop. A warm welcome from Patricia, beautifully presented and equipped rooms with very comfortable beds. My only criticism would be that the showers could be up-graded. The breakfasts were delicious and well presented - I particularly liked the small irish breakfast option. This was...

The house is located about 5-10 minutes from Oughterard town in a quiet neighborhood. It is also equipped with...

Mountain View B & B is a quiet, comfortable B & B about a half hour from Galway, operated by hosts Patricia and Richard O'Connor. On our recent family trip to Ireland, they were the most open-hearted innkeepers we encountered. Their welcome reminded me of visits to my Midwestern cousins. Their B & B is spotless, with comfortable beds, crisp...

Terrific location and views directly on the river and easy walking distance to town center. Wonderful hosts, great breakfast overlooking the river and grounds. We were given a great recommendation for dinner and lots of good advice about touring the Ring of Kerry.
