Carmel & Martin have to be the most loveliest hosts ever! So welcoming & can't do enough for you! The breakfast was top class. We had access to a private tv room also. Everywhere was immaculate but I do think they should take up the old fashion carpet & replace it to give the place a more modern feel. The... More

Just come back from staying three nights, would have liked more.... Carmel and Martin are just great. Pleasant and so very helpful. Good breakfast my other half loved the salmon!! I have stayed at many hotels B&B al over the world and this is so friendly with out being gushing or OTT. I wouldn't say it was five star comfort... More

I spent 4 nights in Ocean Villa B&B due to working locally in the area for the week. I was taken to a lovely room, I was staying on my own and was big enough for 2 people. The room was immaculate, it was en-suite and facing the lake. It was a real breath-taking view especially on nice days! Carmel,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in August and I have to say it was one of the most beautiful locations I had ever seen, and trust me I have travelled!!! From the minute we arrived to the minute we left everything was just fabulous. We were greeted by Carmel and her husband Martin and we felt... More

This is a true Irish B&B. One that was first a family home, and now embraces visitors. Before the rise of purpose built B&Bs, Ireland was populated with this type of lodging; the Irish welcoming visitors into their homes. So while you may not find the newest and shiniest of objects here, what you will find is true Irish hospitality... More

Stayed in Ocean Villa and loved it!! It's an 8km drive from Clifden, so not in town, but the drive has some of the best views in the country! The view from the house is fabulous too, with the sea practically at the doorstep! The owners, Carmel and Martin, made us feel at home from the moment we arrived, inviting... More

We stayed at the Ocean Villa B&B for five nights and enjoyed the experience. The B&B is an older style establishment that doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of its 5 star counterparts. What is does have is magnificent views, being perfectly situated on the Sky Road, warm hospitality and great breakfasts. Our hosts Carmel and Martin were very... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ocean Villa B&B for six nights in August 2010 and we absolutely loved it! Martin and Carmel are among the nicest people you'll ever meet and were always ready to give advice about trips, attractions, shopping and dining opportunities in the area. We had the front room with a fantastic scenic view and... More

The property is located a few hundred meters away from the northern side of the Sky Road loop. Clearly marked from the northern entrance of this loop road. Hard to find if you come from the southern side of this loop road, the side that offers the real spectacular views. The rooms are very clean and with new furniture and... More
