The Mountain View B&B was a great place to stay. It was very near the village of Oughterard, outside Galway. Patricia, the host, was extremely friendly and accommodating. The full Irish fry-up was an amazing breakfast, and there were cereals, breads, and juice as well. Rooms were clean, as were the en suite bathrooms. We especially liked the countryside setting,...

We received a very warm welcome from Patricia, the owner, whose hospitality and hard work in making guests comfortable is what warrants this score of 4. Our room was impeccably clean and the extra pillows I requested were on our bed. The room was certainly adequate, though a bit "tired". The delicious breakfast was served from 8-10am and helped us...

We stayed one night during a motorcycle tour. Very welcoming proprietors who couldn't do enough. They recommended a local pub for the evening, and gave us a lift there. The recommendation was excellent. The room was ideal, and the breakfast was exceptional. All in all, it was a superb experience with excellent value for money. I would have no hesitation... More
