Bens View B&B is exactly what you imagine an Irish B&B to be! Beautifully decorated, charming old house, fantastic full Irish breakfast with china & silver, large, comfortable rooms with private baths and an absolutely brilliant inn keeper!

I found this place to be fantastic! The lady who runs the place was awesome she prepared a fantastic breakfast for us! Our room was comfortable clean and the price was reasonable! She thought there were only two people coming and still accommodated us even though we had 3 people she went above and beyond!

We stayed one night during our WAW road trip. This charming BandB right in the town centre has it all. Cosy rooms. Very nice host and superb breakfast. Pancakes with bacon and fruit was a welcome change from traditional Irish breakfast. Highly recommended
