This is a lovely B&B. Eileen and Desmond were superb hosts. The room was large and perfect for us. We stayed three nights, so I tried all three delicious breakfast offerings. Be sure to ask Eileen and Desmond about the history of the house, then look at the many historic photos and memorabilia. I highly recommend Ben View House!

We spent two days visiting family in Clifden, and spent both nights at the Ben View House. Such warm, friendly, accommodating people. The breakfast is fabulous! Rooms are well decorated with antiques, and very clean. Easy access to fabulous, picturesque Irish town. Free wifi.

We stayed for 2nights at BenView and absolutely loved it. Clean rooms, delicious breakfast, warm welcoming. They provided us with a crib for our 6months old daughter which was really helpful. Big Thanks to Eileen and Desmond we definitely recommend to stay at BenView if you are around Connemara.

Breakfast was exceptionally great. Eileen and Desmond are great hosts. Room was clean and neat, we recommend they install a wifi repeater though as the internet connection was not stable in our room. Great location in the city center
