Mr. And Mrs. Morris run a wonderful little B & B here in Clifden. It is centrally located downtown and within a short walk of many nice restaurants and pubs. They are very helpful, and provide a great breakfast. The rooms and beds are comfortable. Beautifully decorated.

I am drawn to the west coast of Ireland like no other place I know; and though I've enjoyed staying in lovely Roundstone, I've no doubt that the capital of Connemara--Clifden--is the better location and more useful as a base from which to explore the region. And if I'm going to stay in Clifden, it will be at Ben View... More

There a a lot of places to stay in Clifden, and I have never been tempted to try another. The Ben View is centrally located, is comfortable, and our hostess, Eileen is charming and informative, and most of all welcoming. Eileen serves a beautiful breakfast, with many choices and expertly cooked. Eileen grew up in this lovely home, and is... More

A great place to visit with a warm and friendly welcome. By far the best breakfast during my stay in Ireland. (pancakes to die for and the full Irish is just as good). Cant fault it. And if you love old world charm with modern convenience then this is the place for you. One of the guests struggled with wifi... More

We stayed here for one night in mid-April, and found it to be comfortable, friendly and accommodating. The location was great: right in the middle of town, walking-distance to everything. The owners (brother and sister) were both very friendly, and made us feel immediately welcome. We had a lovely, large room with a giant, comfortable bed. In addition, my boyfriend... More

Stayed 3 nights in a single for only €35 a night; the room was average and small but was all I required and was great for the price. The common room was very comfortable with a big TV and breakfast was excellent, with several great options if you have had too many Full Irish. But what makes this Very Good... More

We arrived at night around 10.30 PM because the BnB we had previously booked near Clifden had refused us saying we were late! We have had a car problem and were exhausted. Desmond was friendly and turned our nightmare into a dream with a room and a wonderful breakfast in the morning in fine china and a lot of advices... More

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.
