Breakfast was exceptionally great. Eileen and Desmond are great hosts. Room was clean and neat, we recommend they install a wifi repeater though as the internet connection was not stable in our room. Great location in the city center

Stayed at Ben View guest house for two nights and absolutely enjoyed our stay. Eileen and Desmond were so welcoming and couldn't have done more for us. The breakfast was delicious, big portions with great choice. I can't say enough good things about Ben View.....can't wait to go back there ! Very clean, very comfortable but the friendliness of all...

The treatment was very good. The breakfast was sooooo delicious. I highly recommend this place because location is so good and room was clean. We stayed there three nights. Very nice B&B! Besides the town is worth seeing.

Eileen and Ben are really friendly and lovely persons who are doing everything to let you feel comfortable. Me and my girlfriend were in room 5, unfortunately the WiFi wasn't working very well but this isn't a point to give a negative rating. The room was very clean. The breakfast was incredible. My girl had pancakes with fresh fruits and...

We were made welcome immediately. The breakfast is super delicious and of great selection. I recommend the salmon and scramble eggs.

I'll keep it short this time. When I'm in Clifden I simply wouldn't stay anywhere else. The accommodation has its own charms and they in themselves would bring us back.... but what really sets this place apart from the average are the people ......Eileen and Desmond. They couldn't be more helpful and friendly and their staff are the same. All...

I booked a room in the Ben View based on positive ratings on Trip Advisor and I really was not mislead in any way, this guesthouse is sublime. Clifden is a great little town and the Ben View is smack bang right in the middle of things. The house looks small from the outside but everything is quite a surprise...

This is a wonderful B and B in beautiful Clifden. We received a warm welcome from the owner who went out of his way to make all of his guests feel welcome. The room was spacious and clean with everything you could ask for. Breakfast was superb and the dining room beautifully furnished.
