    I had an amazing time at Moutain View Hostel! There is so much to do and see! Larry is very accommodating and friendly. We climbed Larry's mountain and met his farm animals. Worth the drive!!

    Mountain View Hostel was an absolute haven during my cycle trip around Conamara. Clean, cosy, all the facilities you could want and it is pure charming. Nestled among picturesque rolling hills and lakes, you feel part if the environment and not like a tourist. Larry is pure sound: so helpful and accommodating (also a captivating storyteller!). I had the place to myself, it would be perfect for a group or family. Definitely would recommend and hope I get the chance to stay again sometime!

    It was a lovely weekend with at the Irish farm:) There are a house for the family and another small separated house which is hostel. Every family member was so nice and lovely that I felt like I'm hosted by nice airbnb host. Place is tidy, convenient, just one thing you may need to know is internet is very limited. However, still, it is able to catch wifi signal around the porch when you're in need. It is okay to be away from your phone in the lovely nature, I think.

    Accommodating and helpful hosts in a beautiful location. Mountain View Hostel is located amidst the most beautiful, green Clonbur mountains, peppered with sheep! The owner, Larry, offered his nearby mountain for climbing. The converted barn has a spacious sleeping area and a kitchenette that is perfect for cooking small meals. Larry even took us out to his local pub for a Guinness! So very welcoming! Be sure to visit Cong if ever you stay in this amazing little spot.

    We rented a car to drive some of the scenic coasts and Mountain view hostel just outside of Galway was perfectly positioned for that. When we arrived the proprietors were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to assist us checking in, etc. The hostel itself is 10 minutes out of the nearest town, small and clean. It is a two story cabin in good chape with 6 beds. There were no issues and I would definitely return.

    No one else booked that night so we had the place to ourselves. No internet which was a bummer. Nice country views though. Nice and clean. My only complaint is that the shower liner had mold on it. Otherwise a nice little hostel!
