We spent one night in early February as the tempest was roaring. Great accommodation all around. Very nice breakfast, charming decor and very friendly host. Central and charming. Would recommend it warmly.

The guesthouse is very neat and wonderfully decorated. We had an upstairs room with everything we needed. The breakfast was the best we have had in Ireland so far, and the dining room was special. The host, Eileen, also had great suggestions for dining, pubs, and more. We would most definitely stay there again. Parking was also very easy and... More

Wow! What a wonderful place. Spacious rooms with great views. Best location in Clifden!! Footsteps away from all the pubs and shops in Clifden. Eileen and Desmond are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Their breakfast is wonderful- our favorite meal of the entire trip.

We had a really great time at Eileen's. She warmly welcomed us. The breakfast was very good and generous. And a special mention to the cute decoration. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre nuit au Ben view house. La décoration de l'hôtel est trop mignonne et typique. Le petit déjeuner est très bon et copieux. On recommande !

Our boys were just dazzled by the old-fashioned elegance, warmth, and hospitality Eileen and Desmond and their staff showered us with. After a long days' drive, we were pepped up with their good cheer, and showed to a cozy,... More

She is accommodating, welcoming, warm spirited, and full of local knowledge about the tight-knit community. Our stay (my mom and... More

Bens View B&B is exactly what you imagine an Irish B&B to be! Beautifully decorated, charming old house, fantastic full Irish breakfast with china & silver, large, comfortable rooms with private baths and an absolutely brilliant inn keeper!
