“Great view”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Arrived yesterday afternoon. Greeted with warm welcome. All staff seem well trained and will do anything for you. Seaweed baths within walking distance-a must for everyone. Horseriding 5miles up the road. Take part in a lesson, go for a hack or gallop on beach(weather permitting). Again, very nice people and great time had!!
If you want to stay put, there are many walking opportunities, play park/indoor play area for the kids. Plenty to do.
Only downside(and this is me being picky)tv in room poor, only 4channels and room temp difficult to control even with our own thermostat. Found hotel a bit chilly at times.
But really. An enjoyable weekend, maybe come back in the summer with the kids!
Oh by the way-get a meal in Gilroys(next door to hotel). Fantastic atmosphere, staff and food. Five stars for that!!

We stayed at the Ocean Sands hotel on 17th & 18th January the hotel is a nice warm friendly one with great staff but we were very dissapointed with our evening meal on Friday night in the bar (resturant was closed) the food was not good however we have to say breakfast on both mornings was good. Went for a long refreshing walk along the beach and spent a few hours in Ballina a quaint little town nearby. The Resturant beside the hotel and the little pub up the street were highly recommend for food so we opted for the pub on our second night as you had to book the resturant. After having to wait a short while for a table we were treated to a very tasty meal all made from scratch in the points kitchen. Will hopefully get back again sometime.

We stayed here on the 17th and 18th of Jan 2014. Its just such a fab hotel you just dont want to come home again. This was our second time to stay here all staff, food and welcome that you get just makes you relax rightaway. The walks are fantastic on the beach you can walk for miles if you want. Hope to get back here soon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view it is just beautiful to wkke up and look out at the sea.

We recently bought a living social media for the ocean sands, and buoy (excuse the pun) were we in for a treat.

a lovely welcome drink, great barman giving me tips on where to go in the area.

An amazing long beach to blow the cobwebs away, great food, and a play area for kids from 6-8 so adults can eat, how fab is that.

I would really recommend the hotel, the rooms were spacious, family room was very clean, large and light.

looking forward to our next trip there

Room Tip: one overlooking the sea would be a bonus

We stayed at the Ocean Sands Hotel on the 27th and 28th of December. From the minute we arrived the atmosphere was electric. Staff so helpful and friendly. Myself and PJ have stayed at this hotel quiet a number of times also over the Christmas period. If your planning a trip to Enniscrone try to reserve room at the Ocean Sands. Mark and Theresa are brilliant owners and have a great relationship with their staff which really comes across to the customer. Thanks a gain folks down there for all your help great staff. Ann and PJ

Room Tip: Look for ocean view it's amazing with the waves thrashing against the shore line. Mighty nights...

I decided to book a two night stay at the ocean sands for my husbands birthday. On arrival in our room we were met by a bottle of champagne on ice and a lovely greeting for his birthday, this was so unexpected and very much appreciated by both of us. The hotel is in such a beautiful location, the rooms are spacious very clean and comfortable. The food is absolutely delicious with a wide ranging menu and last but not least the management and staff are so friendly helpful and they are always smiling and polite, I would recommend this hotel to anyone, we have stayed in quite a lot of hotels but this family run hotel definately is our favourite and gets 10/10 everytime!
