We had a wonderful family reunion and visit to Clifden. Benbaun is a great place to stay. We were a group of 28 adults and children of all ages. It catered for all our needs. A great place to stay.

About the neighborhood
Built around 1810 by Clifden’s founder John D’Arcy, it was once his residence. A walk to Clifden Castle is essential. It is approached through a beautiful entrance arch and gothic walls along a winding avenue edged with a series of 5 standing stones (only one is original). Clifden Castle is now a romantic ruin overlooking Clifden Bay. Follow the signs from The Square towards Sky Road.
