Lovely room, centrally located in Clifden. My husband & I didn't have a reservation, but we were off-season and they were very accommodating. Our host, Desmond, learned our names straight off, and greeted us warmly by name every time we saw him. Wonderful breakfast. It's a lovely town, and our stay here helped make it complete. Lovely dining room, filled with silver tea sets. You wouldn't go wrong here.

Room Tip: We payed a little less for a room up in the back (30 v.35 eur/pp).

My wife and I recently stayed at the Ben View for 2 nights as part of our tour through NW Ireland. During our 2 week-long trip we stayed exclusively in B&Bs, mostly in small villages. Our stay at the Ben View was one of the best. It is located within the main part of Clifden--so there are plenty of pubs, shops, and restaurants within easy walking distance. The room we stayed in was very nice--clean, comfortable bed and large enough to have room for our suticases, etc. Eileen was a wonderful host--she gave us great advice on places to go for a run and enjoy a beer and music at the local pubs. Breakfast was great--it was made to order every morning. Overall it was a great stay and one of the highlights of our Irish Holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our night at Ben View House, from the immediate proximity to all the action in downtown Clifden to the lovely room, to the scrumptious and magnificently appointed breakfast! The fresh pancakes were especially delicious!! Eileen and Des were entirely engaging and helpful in enabling us to find our way around town. We tavelled all around the Irish countryside this trip, and Ben View was the best B&B we came across!!

I arrived last saturday evening for a one night stay in Benview. Des met me in the lobby and I was made feel at home immediately. Delightful room with all that I needed. A breakfast that was scrumptous and freshly made pancakes too. It is so lovely to be made feel at home and to have someone welcome you, this is what being Irish is all about. Thank you for a lovely stay Des, you really know how to treat guests. Regards Enid

Everything about our stay with Eileen and Desmond in July was first-rate and fun. The exterior and the common areas are lovely. Check-in was easy and informative. Their location is perfect for exploring Clifden and is almost next door to the bike shop where we had our rentals reserved. Our room (#8) was spacious and well-laid out and the bed was by far the most comfortable on our whole trip. Our hosts went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed or could want. We actually changed our plans to stay an extra night, we were having such a terrific time.

Room Tip: We didn't see the others but were really happy with #8. Quiet, bright and well laid out.
