Had a wonderful stay in Ben View recently. Desmond, our host couldn't have been more helpful. Food was excellent, and freshly cooked, room was comfortable and warm.The location is perfect right in the middle of Clifden, convenient to all restaurants and bars. It is also very convenient for travelling to Killary Harbour and Killarney National Park among other places.

Ben View is in a very convenient location for touring Connemara National park and all the nature the region has to offer. We enjoyed the central location in town, which made it easy to walk around to all the restaurant options. Breakfast was made to order and was the best we had in Ireland.

Took a last minute decision to visit Clifden for a night during August. Following good reviews on TA decided to give them a call and luckily they had a room. The house is 100 years in the same family and is a pretty old house surrounded by blooming flowers. Des provided a warm welcome and the rate was very reasonable....

Best breakfast in Ireland without a doubt. The dining room was exceptionally beautiful. Extremely comfortable accommodation and perfect position. The hostess Eileen is warm, inviting, informative and without comparison.

A highlight of our Irish adventure, this B and B should not be missed. From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome and at home by Eileen and Des. The old world charm was amazing and the dining room was filled with antiques, china and beautiful sterling serving pieces. Our room was spotlessly clean, spacious and very comfortable. The...
