We were here for one night in Ballyvaughan. On our way to the town, we had heard incredible things about this place and the lady who ran it - Kathleen. We arrived to a housekeeper who definitely didn't speak English and seemed unsure what to do with people arriving. This was a standard check in time, and we had a... More

We had two very nice nights at Oceanville B&B and enjoyed the sea view from the room upstairs. Sean and Kathleen are very warm hosts. The B&B is located beside a nice restaurant and only a view steps away from the pubs of Ballyvaughan - be aware that there is no cash machine in the little village, the next is... More

Stayed here in June 2014. Room was clean and a decent size. The Oceanville is located next to a restaurant (highly recommend it) and just a short walk of a few minutes to the village where there are a few pubs to have a drink. Breakfast was great and Kathleen was very friendly. Highly recommend this B & B and... More

We couldn't start a review of Oceanville without first describing the location. And the location can't be described without first describing the view. From the two wide picture windows in our room, we had an incredible view of the ocean, the rocky hills of the Burren, and the pretty flowers which adorned the entrance to the B&B. Food and fun...

Our room at Oceanville B&B on the second floor overlooking Galway Bay was the most comfortable and had the best view of any room on our entire two week stay in Ireland. It was spacious, spotlessly clean, and totally quiet for sleeping in the extremely comfortable bed. On one cloudy day, instead of moping and feeling sorry for ourselves, we... More

I was only able to stay one night here but it was very nice. I don't think you can beat the view. Just incredible to look out over Galway Bay from your bedroom. My bed was comfortable and it was a nice quiet stay. A nice short walk to the town (Just down the street) and many beautiful walks right... More

Stayed here at short notice. Kathleen gave us a wonderful welcome, warm but businesslike. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and what a view! Breakfast was fresh and generous. She chatted easily with her guests and her warmth and homely premises are what decent BnBs are all about. We will return!

The location has to be the best thing about this B&B. We had a second story bedroom with a view over Galway Bay that was stunning! The rooms are clean and well kept. The beds we had where very hard though as we have found in some B&B's particularly in the country. No tea making facilities in room but we... More

Clean, convenient, cordial... A perfect B&B. Kathleen is friendly, helpful and engaging. Great breakfast, awesome view of Galway Bay. Convenient to the small village. We enjoyed the local flavor of the 5 or 6 pubs in town. There is a great walk through woods and fields that show the local terrain, which is spectacular. The Burren is other-worldly. Highly recommend... More
