We stayed with Claire and Brian for two nights and would have been happy to stay longer! This was definitely our best stay during our holiday in Ireland/Northern Ireland. We came for the Irish Open Golf and was welcomed by Claire after a rather long day at the golf course. She offered to make some calls to secure us dinner... More

We stayed here for the Irish Open and have to say we couldn't have asked for a better place. Brian & Claire couldn't have been nicer, always on hand to give a lift or a fresh pot of tea. Breakfast was superb, house was immaculate. Stay here and you won't regret it.

The Mountain View B&B was a lovely experience, from the road it looks unimposing, but once Brian and Claire take you round into the garden and to the rooms it is fab.
