Eileen is an incredible host, she treated us like old friends, from the moment we asked for a room one evening last summer. We took the last one available, I think the less desirable, upstairs, comfortable but dark and cramped. And with no wifi signal. But our stay was remarkable, the breakfast room has a great atmosphere with other guests,... More

Big and light and proper bedrooms, rich breakfast in a nostalgic dining room, decored with much love to details. Near to the center of clifden and only a few kilometer from the connemara national park.

I stayed at the Ben View for one night with my family and had a very good experience. The owner was extremely jolly and friendly and was very happy to help. The beds were very comfortable and the room and en-suite were a decent size. And the breakfast was delicious. I had the full Irish which was lovely and my... More

Desmond and Eileen are a great tag team . They are superb hosts. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The breakfast room is something to behold. Like being wrapped in a cosy blanket. I didn't have a cooked breakfast but the otherhalf had pancakes and they were delicious. Fluffy and light. The whole experience was so professional and personal. It... More

Ben View House by far the best place we stayed touring Ireland. We stayed there beginning of July and felt welcome right from the first moment. Take your time and talk to Eileen about Clifden and the history of the house. You will be surprised. Breakfast is being served in a lovely decorated room which once hosted the town's station...

Best b&b ever. Beautiful people, lovely home. Breakfast is wonderful. Can't praise it enough. 10 out of 10. Even catered for gluten free diet, going out of their way to provide bread and sausages. Will definitely be back.

I stayed at the Ben View House and it was so wonderful! Mrs. Morris is very nice and her staff is wonderful too. The rooms are beautiful and very well kept. Also she makes the best pancakes EVER. When I first arrived she suggested I go to the sky road and a fabulous place for dinner. Both were excellent suggestions.... More

This is a charming old fashioned type of B&B. The family who runs this place has been in business since the 1920's. Our room had a double bed and a single bed- and we all slept really well and found the mattresses quite comfortable. The bathroom had a nice modern shower with good water pressure. The breakfast is in a... More
