This guest house is in a central area in a beautiful town. Room had 2 beds which were comfortable, bathroom small and decor can only be described as quaint but it was lovely and reasonably priced. Owner was very nice and friendly and breakfast was good. Would stay again if in the area.

We spent the night at the Ben View B&B and it was just perfect. We had stayed once before 23 years ago and it's the same charming place. It's wonderful that the same family has run this beautiful house since 1926. It was a very chilly evening, but the room was toasty warm, the room was lovely and so comfortable....

Located right in Clifden, The Ben View House is a lovely place. The owner Desmond was very helpful, hospitable and all around as the Irish say "good craic." He and his sister served a fantastic full Irish breakfast with pancakes that rival no other. If you want to make most of your time in this lovely corner of the country...

A beautiful B&B with spacious rooms and gracious hosts! Perfectly located to roam and wander. DO not miss their breakfast...we loved this place! Our host and hostess went above and beyond to welcome us and were full of where to go and what to do. We will definitely return!

We had a lovely night in Ben View. Comfy bed and rooms,loads of charm. Stay were really nice and a fabulous breakfast in the great dining room. The nearest thing to a complaint is I thought the breakfast room was a little chilly,but that was the smallest of things. Highly highly recommend!

I recently booked the Ben View B&B for a large group of friends celebrating New Years Eve in beautiful Cliften and couldn't recommend this guests house enough. From booking straight through to departure my experience here has been wonderful. I booked in 15 of my friends and Des, the owner, couldn't of been more helpful and even remembered everyone's name-...

Great room in the heart of downtown Clifden. The full Irish breakfast, both the meat and the vegetarian, was delicious and a beautiful presentation. Our hosts gave us excellent directions to the Sky Road, Kylemore Abbey, saving us time and making the most of our four days in Clifden and around.

The Ben View House was very welcoming to travelers arriving late in the day and in an off season. Offering a nice room for the night. Custom breakfast in the morning was delicious. Well worth the travel to the Connemara coast.
