Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Stayed in this B&B on Saturday the 20th. We Called around 18.00 and it was no problem to come by have a look at the room. As soon as I stepped in I knew we had to stay here. Ben remembered my name straight away, showcased the greatest hospitality, not just accomodation. The breakfast room was maybe the best of all, silver tea and coffee pots but in very good condition; fantastic! The breakfast itself was tastefull and royal portions! Definitely the place to go in Clifden!

Recent July stay of 2 nights with my three sisters, was a dream B&B experience. Top of the tier
hospitiality, breakfast, & local knowledge was most welcome. This was my third trip to the Ben View House in twelve years, and I have loved it more each visit. Eileen is an excellent hostess, and very hands on. Beautiful flowers out front, and breafast settings & food not to be beat.
I will be back to this charming locale.

Clifden and Benview made a wonderful place to stay. Desmond and Eileen are 3rd generation owners. The B&B was started by their grandparents in 1928. They were so welcoming to us, with no reservation. The moment I saw the beautiful Victorian breakfast room, I knew we would stay there. Our room was lovely, complete with special touches like red geranium window boxes. Desmond helped us find some local cousins and recommended a few local pubs that were very friendly. He also suggested the sea view drive, which was beautiful.

Go visit Mannion's Pub and talk to Paul, the 3rd generation owner. Also visit Doogle, the bar tender at Lowry's for some real Irish charm.

My husband and I stayed in the Ben View for one night only. Great location, Eileen was so lovely and friendly. Breakfast was very enjoyable. The room was very clean, loved the shower head and also the beautiful embroidered fresh white sheets on the bed. When next in Clifden will stay there again. Edwina & Warren from Australia
