We arrived in Clifden without reservations because of an uncertain travel schedule and stopped by Ben View based on Tripadvisor ratings and information from their web site. Eileen was out to "do the messages" but we decided to wait. Thank goodness we did! What a fantastic first experience with B&B accommodations. There was a bike run going on and the house was fairly well booked but Eileen was very accommodating and fit us in even though we had to shuffle to a different room each night. Great central location to walk around town hitting the shops and pubs. The house is beautifully furnished and has a nice little parlor to sit and organize your photos or thoughts. Rooms are very tidy with comfortable bedding and quiet with the exception of the typical quirks of a house (squeaky floorboard, late arriving guests...). You won't be long before meeting Desmond, one of the most gracious and talkative hosts you will likely meet. Breakfasts were absolutely amazing. Best aspect of our stay was the knowledge of the Clifden area that Eileen and Desmond shared with us. We were attempting to trace family heritage in the area and our hosts were invaluable in guiding us in the right direction. Of our six lodgings during our trip, this was by far the best.
