We loved this beautiful B&B which was chock-full of family history, nick-knacks, porcelain and tea services. Our hosts were delightful, breakfast good, access perfect and parking ample. The house is old and quaint with narrow hallways and steep stairs, which add to the charm. Can't wait to go back to this beautiful little town full of music, friendly people and...

I arrived to Clifden late in the evening with a friend and we were super happy to come across Ben View B&B. The room was clean and comfortable, the host extremely friendly and helpful in advising us on the continuation of our trip, breakfast was a treat. I recommend this place!

The breakfast room is a picture. And the breakfast himself is totally delicious. Desmond is a real nice host. The only downside is that the house is cold. I mean literally. That's a disappointment after experiencing outside the wilderness and tough climate of Connemara

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...
