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

Our greeting from Eileen was warm and gracious. Breakfast service was pleasant and the food excellent. Our room was spacious and did not face the street so was very quiet. Wifi only available on main floor would be only minor negative.

The house has been a B&B or lodging house for many , many years in the same family and the tradition is carried on with pride by Des and his Sister Eileen. They could not be more welcoming,... More

A wonderfull welcome from Eileen, to a lovely old world guest house. Best sleep and breakfast of our week's break in the West. Eileen proved to be a most welcoming and helpfull hostess. Her pancake breakfast is superb, and was matched only by the charming antique filled dining room in which it was served. An experience not to be missed... More

We drove into Clifden unexpectedly and went looking for a room. We were welcomed by Mr. Morris, the owner, who was pleasant and accommodating immediately. He showed us a great room, toward the back of the house, so as not to be disturbed, with a large bed sunken down a step or two inside the room, like in to a... More
