We were made welcome immediately. The breakfast is super delicious and of great selection. I recommend the salmon and scramble eggs. Unfortunately WiFi is zero, even downstairs (a tip about wifi is when you go to griffin's pub, just ask and they will give you their loggin information to use in the pub, that you can try to use in...

I'll keep it short this time. When I'm in Clifden I simply wouldn't stay anywhere else. The accommodation has its own charms and they in themselves would bring us back.... but what really sets this place apart from the average are the people ......Eileen and Desmond. They couldn't be more helpful and friendly and their staff are the same. All...

I booked a room in the Ben View based on positive ratings on Trip Advisor and I really was not mislead in any way, this guesthouse is sublime. Clifden is a great little town and the Ben View is smack bang right in the middle of things. The house looks small from the outside but everything is quite a surprise...

This is a wonderful B and B in beautiful Clifden. We received a warm welcome from the owner who went out of his way to make all of his guests feel welcome. The room was spacious and clean with everything you could ask for. Breakfast was superb and the dining room beautifully furnished.

Eileen is a fantastic host, and all the staff is helpful and kind. The house is charming and comfortable, very well located in town. The room just perfect. Delicious home made full Irish breakfast. Definitely recommend, book early since it seems to be very busy.

My Mum and I had a wonderful stay in Ben View House. The room was spacious and very clean. Not only was the breakfast deliciously cooked, also it was really creative. We had a great time visiting Connemara and love to return as soon as possible.

The sister and brother who manage the Ben View could not have been more friendly and accommodating. They welcomed my wife and me and explained the history of the place and the breakfast choices available. Breakfast was wonderful - scrambled eggs with local salmon and fine breads and toasts. More importantly, you find yourself a five minute drive from the...
