Wow! What a wonderful place. Spacious rooms with great views. Best location in Clifden!! Footsteps away from all the pubs and shops in Clifden. Eileen and Desmond are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Their breakfast is wonderful- our favorite meal of the entire trip.

We had a really great time at Eileen's. She warmly welcomed us. The breakfast was very good and generous. And a special mention to the cute decoration. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre nuit au Ben view house. La décoration de l'hôtel est trop mignonne et typique. Le petit déjeuner est très bon et copieux. On recommande !

We stayed at the Ben View House with our 6 and 9 year old sons. Our stay couldn't be more perfect! Our boys were just dazzled by the old-fashioned elegance, warmth, and hospitality Eileen and Desmond and their staff showered us with. After a long days' drive, we were pepped up with their good cheer, and showed to a cozy,...

Eileen, the owner, has taken great pride in caring for her her home/ B&B which once belonged to her grandmother and her mother before her.

Bens View B&B is exactly what you imagine an Irish B&B to be! Beautifully decorated, charming old house, fantastic full Irish breakfast with china & silver, large, comfortable rooms with private baths and an absolutely brilliant inn keeper!

I found this place to be fantastic! The lady who runs the place was awesome she prepared a fantastic breakfast for us! Our room was comfortable clean and the price was reasonable! She thought there were only two people coming and still accommodated us even though we had 3 people she went above and beyond!

We stayed at BenView for two enjoyable nights. The rooms are a good size, very clean and with all the amenities required. Breakfasts were more than sufficient to start the day. It is in a great location within a few minutes’ walk to the pubs and restaurants. While we were there, Eileen and her family were preparing for her daughter’s...
