I stayed here for 3 nights in May 2017. The hosts were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The room and bathroom were comfortable, clean, and spacious. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, too. I loved looking at all the photos and curios that decorate the Ben View House.

I cannot say enough about our incredible experience at Ben View House. My friend Mary and I spent three delightful nights here in Aprll 2017.

Myself and a friend stayed in Ben View for the Connemarathon. The hospitality was amazing - warm and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious and the breakfast is an experience not to be missed!

Ben View House is operated by brother and sister, Elaine and Desmond. We highly recommend Ben View. Rooms are spotless. Wifi available, Huge Irish breakfast included. Comfortable beds and attractive bedrooms. Exquisitely decorated throughout. Extremely friendly and accommodating. Knowledgeable tourist information offered by Desmond. If in Clifden don't pass this B & B. It is a first class operation.

We loved this beautiful B&B which was chock-full of family history, nick-knacks, porcelain and tea services. Our hosts were delightful, breakfast good, access perfect and parking ample. The house is old and quaint with narrow hallways and steep stairs, which add to the charm. Can't wait to go back to this beautiful little town full of music, friendly people and...

The breakfast room is a picture. And the breakfast himself is totally delicious. Desmond is a real nice host. The only downside is that the house is cold. I mean literally. That's a disappointment after experiencing outside the wilderness and tough climate of Connemara
