I have to be honest this is probably the best B and B we stayed in after travelling around Ireland for two weeks. The moment you step in the kindness and helpfulness is apparent from Des and Eileen who we met. He showed us to the room and explained about breakfast etc. The room was very comfortable and immaculate; clean...

Highly recommend due perfect location and excellent breakfast. The bed s comfortable and slept very well. The hosts are so friendly and welcome us when we arrived. The breakfast s excellent and would think if we stay in hotel rather than B&B.

Ideally located, very friendly owner, nice family room, wifi only works downstairs, but lots of attention paid to details, they make you feel at home right away. Never before have I had a breakfast like this, don't miss it.

Desmond took great care of us. We walked in from the street and he showed us a cozy, comfortable attic room and handed us a key. A superb breakfast is included at a very reasonable rate, you will not be disappointed by any of the options (we tried them all). Desmond is also quite knowledgeable on things to do in...

This is a lovely B&B. Eileen and Desmond were superb hosts. The room was large and perfect for us. We stayed three nights, so I tried all three delicious breakfast offerings. Be sure to ask Eileen and Desmond about the history of the house, then look at the many historic photos and memorabilia. I highly recommend Ben View House!
