I had a great stay at Ben View House. It's ideally located in the city center. Eileen was very welcoming, the room was very comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. What more could you ask for! Do not hesitate then.

We stayed there for one night. Everything was really perfect. Nice room, Free Wifi but overall the kindness of the hotelier. We also really enjoyed the breakfast, Irish or pancakes..... A good address to go and have a night.

Clifden is a beautiful town and the Ben View House is a lovely place to stay! We arrived in town without reservations and Eileen was so welcoming and charming. The room was very nice comparing to many other places we stayed while touring Ireland. Very clean, warm, and quiet keeping an antiquated feel without being outdated. After a great night... More

This cosy B&B was the best of all the B&B's we went to during our stay in Connemara. Fantastic located in the centre however very relaxed and clean, with an amazing breakfast room and much attention to detail… Thank you Eileen! Hope to be back one day.
