Mountain View accommodation has been lovingly converted to create a tasteful combination of traditional character and contemporary style. The 18th Century pigeon house on the gable end of the stable building testifies to its historical origin, and the wealth of original features make our home a memorable place to stay.
From your arrival to your final departure, we will endeavour to make each and every guests’ stay more comfortable. Our resident cat and dog will be pleased to greet you. In the morning, our generous breakfasts will set you up for the day, ready to explore the delights of our county. You are always welcome to use the breakfast room during your stay to spread out your maps and plan routes and walks.
We endeavour to make every guest’s stay at Mountain View as enjoyable as possible. Here you can choose just how you want to spend your time – enjoy the slower pace of life in our unspoilt county, or burn off some energy in the great range of activities available throughout the area. Whether you want to walk, cycle, hike, play golf, go bird-watching or horse-riding, or simply relax and enjoy the scenery, you’re certain of a genuine welcome. Mountain View offers perfect accommodation for both relaxing and activity holidays.
The village of Ballylooby nestles in the heart of South Tipperary, the largest county in Ireland, right in the centre of the ‘sunny South East’. We are less than 60 minutes away from Cork city centre, and just two and a half hours from Dublin, depending of course on traffic. This is a haven you will want to return to, again and again. Leave your car in our private car park, or stash your bike in one of our barns, and indulge, relax and unwind a little. Then return to your beautiful accommodation at Mountain View.
In our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, we use locally sourced and fair-trade foods wherever possible, and all our food is vegetarian. We actively recycle all we are able to, and strive to make the most efficient use of water. Wherever possible we have fitted low energy light bulbs to help lower the electricity used, and our composter in the garden enables us to recycle all biodegradable waste. We use mainly wood for our heating, which is a carbon neutral method, and when we renovated the house recently, we used eco-friendly insulation.
Our garden has been a real pleasure to develop over the years. When we first came to Mountain View, there was an old apple orchard, and we have expanded this with native woodland planting – oak, ash, beech, walnut, rowan, birch, and hazel. The garden has an informal cottage garden style, with curving borders and paths edged with driftwood and planted with lavender. Flowers compete with herbs and vegetables, and create a riot of colours, and the natural woodland at the back of the property is a haven for all kinds of bird life. It has been our aim to have colour all year around in the borders, and this is a challenge we have almost achieved. See if you can spot all the miniature sculptures dotted around the garden. We hope our guests will enjoy our garden as much as we do. It is a work in progress and like all proper gardens will never be finished! Our home is full of natural beauty, and we hope it’s an attractive and comfortable spot for our guests, where a warm greeting awaits you at any time of year.
