Eileen warmly welcomed us & showed us to our luxurious & homely ensuite room. We were overwhelmed by the ornate dining room set for breakfast- real silver teapots! Breakfast=first class!! Didn't want to leave!! Desmond was a wealth of information on the area and a proper Irish gentleman.

My daughters (ages 10 and 13) had the great pleasure to stay at Ben View House on our recent trip to Ireland. It was fabulous. The owner was engaging and helpful and made a wonderful breakfast for all of us. The prices were very reasonable and the B & B a half of block from the main street of town.... More

Ben View House is situated right in the center of Clifden, convenient to cozy restaurants and excellent walking routes through the beautiful Connemara countryside. Our room was comfortable and homey, and the breakfast (full Irish) was well-prepared and available late into the morning (very nice when you just need to sleep in). But the best thing about this B&B was... More

Nice clean rooms and a great place. We arrived without a reservation, but the landlady was very accommodating, even though we were checking other places around. Good breakfast, with lovely pancakes. Like others have said, skip the hotels.

What a great find. Modern large, clean bright rooms. Best shower I had in Ireland. An amazing breakfast the next day - the pancakes are amazing. We travelled with a young baby and the owner couldn't have been more accommodating - just a shame we couldn't stay longer.

My wife and child and I just spent three weeks in Ireland and we stayed in several B&Bs while there. Though warm Irish hospitality was found wherever we stayed, our stay in Clifden will always be fondly remembered because of the Ben View House! Aileen & Desmond really know how to run a beautiful B&B! Also, the pancakes & honey... More

I recommend you this adress. We had past an excellent trip, this B&B is very clean, authentic, warm welcoming, good advice, well situated with an amazing breakfast (pancakes pictures enclosed). I hope you will have the possibility to stop in this establishment. For the dinner, we went in "Guys" (Pub Restaurant) very nice as well !
