I was one of 6 people on a 1,200 plus mile charity ride around the coast of the Island of Ireland, in aid of the Kerry Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. At the end of day 4, with almost 1,000 miles ridden, we arrived in Clifden, Co. Galway and pulled into a petrol station. Across the road was the Ben View House B&B. It looked really good from the outside so we said we would see if there were any rooms available (fortunately it was a sunday evening so our chances were increased). What a pleasant surprise when we got inside.....The place was more like a good quality hotel than a B&B! Not all modern and sterile looking, this place is classy with beautiful old world style and furnishings. Eileen, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful even to the point of providing a locked garage for our motorcycles! The Rooms were great and most importantly on a long motorcycle run, the beds really comfortable. Now then, the breakfast, what can I say? well, we knew it was going to be good ever before we got it. The dining room is stunning and the condiments in proper containers not tear open sachets and squeezy bottles lol. The breakfast was magnificent......and huge.....even I struggled to finish and believe me I have an appetite! Fair Play Eileen, we will be back, we are already planning a trip to the blues club in Clifden and you can be sure we will be staying at the Ben View !!
