My daughter and I had a wonderful rest at Bens house with a most delicious breakfast this morning before heading to Dublin. The room was very clean with lots of space. The beds were cozy and welcoming.

From the first time we walked in, we'd were made to feel at home. Rooms were shown to us right away before we agreed to stay. The rooms are great and have everything you need. And the location is second to none. It's right in the City Center where you want to be. The breakfast was just as grand. It's... More

My wife and I pulled in late one nite to be invited in by Wes and shown a room that was perfect. Guy restaurant was suggested and it was the best and definitely made an impression. Wes and Eileen made a great breakfast and we enjoyed talking with the two of them. Suzanne and I will most definitely return.

My husband and I, our two small children, and our parents were lucky enough to find Ben View in Clifden. The host was absolutely down to earth and lovely. The B and B was centrally located in Clifden and close to the Kylemore Abbey in beautiful Connemara. Great service and a very quaint place that makes you feel as if... More

What a find! We were so pleased to be at the Ben View House during the slower November season. We loved chatting with Eileen and her brother, Wes. They were so friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious with big bright windows overlooking the corner street. We were warm and the heat can be adjusted. The breakfast was delicious and... More

Immeditately Eileen felt like family, hostess with the mostest! This b&b was the nicest, cleanest, most-comfortable & friendliest b&b we've ever stayed in. My brand-new finace and I were driving around for hours trying to find the perfect b&b & town to stay. Earlier in the day we had heard the news my younger brother had passed, and we were... More

My family of four had a great two night stay at the Ben View. I'm sure there are many nice places in this adorable town, but I would chose to stay at the Ben View again. Why? Eileen and the warm welcome she gave us! She made us feel so comfortable in her sweet home. My kids loved her pancakes... More

This just has to be the best value in Clifden., We were given the warmest of welcomes. Nice room with en suite and a sumptuous breakfast beautifully served. The house is conveniently situated in the town and is full of interest and antiques. All for an extremely reasonable price. Could not have been better

We enjoyed a triple room for two days in Sept. Desmond and Eileen were delightful. We felt so welcomed and well taken care of. I was ill, and Desmond expresses a his concern to my family. He then recommended a medicine from the pharmacy. It worked like a charm. The breakfast was wonderful and tea is so much better when... More

A very charming and superior B&B. The best! Fantastic breakfast and breakfast room. And, not surprisingly, the room we had was very clean and with new quality furniture. Forgot one pair of jeans, and Desmond and Eileen were so kind to send them to me all the way in Sweden. As you can see from reading this, when in Clifden... More
