My partner Mary and I are regular visitors to Kinvara although this is the first time we stayed at Mountain View. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and found the apt. well aired and heated. It is very well insulated and although there is very effective central heating there is also a fire place for those who like us enjoy the look of a real flame from time to time. The apt. has wi-fi and terrestrial TV stations. The adjoining house is also the owners main residence although they also cater for B & B guests also. If you're fortunate enough (and we were)) you'll meet with the most delightful children and their dog spot who also live at the main residence.
There is so much to do in this area which is within a short drive of the National Park in the Burren and the apt. is an ideal base from which to set out. We will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for those who prefer to go self catering.

I stayed at the chalet with my husband and young baby in September. The place was just what we needed- quiet and compact with all the necessary amenities. The family who own the place live in the B&B adjacent. They bent over backwards to meet all our needs and even baked us fresh scones for breakfast on the day we were travelling home. We drove through parts of the Burren, visited Connemara and Galway city- so it's a great base to start from. Kinvara itself is a lovely little place. Our favourite place to eat was the Gentian- it's worth a visit.
We can't imagine better value or a better location for roaming about western Ireland. This apartment proved to be a very reasonably priced and well-appointed base from which to make day trips all over — we went to the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, Bunratty Castle, Limerick, and more.
And the owners were very pleasant and helpful — they brought over hot oatmeal one morning and homemade biscuits another morning, even though food wasn't officially part of the apartment's amenities.
