Clifden is a beautilful place to stay but don't stay in this B&B !!! The shower was very dirty and the toilet bowl they forgot to clean it .... "I THINK".
There was a little brown boat travelling in the toilet bowl !!! We slept that night with our clothes on and also the bed was very old ! The coffee cup in my room had some rust flakes . Don't take your shoes off in the room because the carpet is full of dust !
The only positive thing in this B&B is the view ! The Ocean villla has a very very very beautilful view !!!!!!! The owner,Carmel, is a nice person but she asked us 40 euro for a ensuite without a view . For that price on the sky road of Cliden you could find a four or a five stars B&B. I'm very sorry to write negative of this B&B but it's the truth !
BELIEVE ME !!!!!!!!!!!

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 the room standard was well within our expectations. And even if our room was a little exposed to the driveway we barely noticed any noise from the other guests. It is true that the Ocean Villa shows signs of use, but that just adds to the authenticity of the experience.

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 a comfortable bed. Good and and tasty breakfast. The welcoming hostess accommodated our tastes. Nice views over a gulf. For dinner or supplies you have to travel to Clifden.

While Ocean Villa was located some ways outside of Clifden my husband and I found that the view more than made up for that fact. We enjoyed being right on the waterfront, away from the town but close enough that we were still able to explore. Like other reviewers, we also stayed in the room toward the front of the house. While it was small and the bed a bit used, it was still comfortable in our opinion. Carmel is a great hostess--very friendly and easy to talk to. Accomodations were fairly clean and it is obvious the home has been well used but in an inviting and cozy sort of way (kind of like going to grandmas!). She allowed us to use her phone and internet and there is a common room toward the front of the home with a TV, etc. as well as a lovely sun room to relax in.

I cant believe how lucky we were to find oceanvilla, it is a little gem located in the west of Ireland with the Atlantic coast right at your doorstep. I cant wait to go back this summer, the service was that of no other that i have experienced in the world and believe me I've travelled. The hosts carmel and martin could be nicer and more friendlier. it was like we had known them for years. The room was beautiful and spacious with a sea view. I'm counting down the days to our return already!
