Very friendly proprietor Des, lovely breakfast and dining room, but bedroom, although clean and warm, was like something from the 1960's, just not good enough in my opinion. Clifden itself is a long drive from anywhere, so make sure you have a good reason for going there. I was going to take photos of Kylemore Abbey so it suited me...

We did not book in advance and we circled the town main streets until we felt a connection with a place. Our first knock was where we landed. Eileen is a lovely hostess The accommodations and her warmth were just what we had hoped for on our Ireland Holiday. We were able to have 2 rooms so that we could...

The guesthouse is very neat and wonderfully decorated. We had an upstairs room with everything we needed. The breakfast was the best we have had in Ireland so far, and the dining room was special. The host, Eileen, also had great suggestions for dining, pubs, and more. We would most definitely stay there again. Parking was also very easy and...

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.

Stayed two nights in the Ben View with my husband at the end of September during the Arts Festival, to be honest we haven't stayed in a B&B or guesthouse for years but all the hotels were booked out and I looked forward to our stay with trepidation! How wrong can you be! It's a charming old worlde house full...

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,...
