The Ben View House was very welcoming to travelers arriving late in the day and in an off season. Offering a nice room for the night. Custom breakfast in the morning was delicious. Well worth the travel to the Connemara coast.

Best place to stay in Clifden! Comfortable, spacious and clean room, perfect location, and the breakfast was excellent! Desmond and Eileen are so kind and welcoming. With no hesitation they immediately mailed our clothing and items that we left behind. We can't thank them enough. We felt so at home at the Ben View House. Don't miss out. This is...

The Morris Family is wonderful! My husband and I stayed here on our trip through the west and not only was the room comfortable, the Morris' took it upon themselves to give us insider information about beautiful drives and sites in the area. They serve a wonderful breakfast and are so friendly and welcoming. I would definitely book with them...

The room was very nice. The Morris' were great hosts. Breakfast was amazing. The B&B is right in the middle of town so its an easy walk to the pubs and shops. It also a short drive out to Clifden Castle.

I cannot say enough good things about Ben View House. From the warm hosts, Eileen and Desmond, to the incredible breakfast, you cannot find a better B&B in Clifden. The house was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and would not hesitate to stay again.

I had a reasonably priced single, small room. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely--so many dishes, plates, silverware,etc. I didn't know where to put things. There were so many choices of toast, jams, fruit, and cooked breakfast, it was hard to know what to eat. Great value.

Traveling from New York, my family and I had really an amazing stay at the Ben View. I work in hospitality in NYC and Desmond and Eileen could not be accommodating. This truly is the best place to stay in Clifden. You are right in the heart of town and close to all the best pubs and restaurants. Desmond and...

Great hosts offering comfortable rooms and an exquisite breakfast experience. The BnB feels homey and the hosts will go out of their way to welcome you. Clifden is a lovely town in the heart of Connemara. Great Pubs offering live music at early hours.
