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.

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.

Food was excellent, and freshly cooked, room was comfortable and warm.The location is perfect right in the middle of Clifden, convenient to all restaurants and bars.

Ben View is in a very convenient location for touring Connemara National park and all the nature the region has to offer. We enjoyed the central location in town, which made it easy to walk around to all the restaurant options. Breakfast was made to order and was the best we had in Ireland.
