Ben View is lovely. As soon as you walk in it is friendly and warm. Eileen and Dennis will give you a personal welcome. The room was comfortable, and the guest house is part of the centre of Clifden so you can walk to anywhere. The breakfast is one of the best I have had anywhere and sets you up...
