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!

I stayed in Ocean Villa in august for my second time and was made fell most
welcome. while I was there i meet a couple who had been coming there for 10
years and said that with each time it gets better. I was given the room to the
front of the house which was by no means noisy but a luxury to stay in. it was
so close to the water you could almost fish from the bed. Carmel the host was
brilliant she made us feel that we a part of the family, She invited us in to
her sitting room where she made us tea and treated us like old time friends. I found the house spotless and could not fault it in any way. Breakfast was huge!
Carmels cooking was that of no other we experineced in Ireland.
I cant wait for next summer when we will return to Ocean Villa!!

We booked rather last minute for our room in Clifden as part of our visit to the Connemara region. While the Ocean Villa's website shows a clean and picturesque B&B, this property is anything but. We have visited several B&B's throughout Ireland and by comparison, this property was run-down, dirty, and very loud if you're staying in the front room with the view of the bay.

Our tea pot had rust flakes and moths hung from the curtains. The bed was very, very old and did not provide a good night's sleep for either one of us. Lastly, the location is quite far from the village, requiring driving if you want to go to town for dinner.

The owner, Carmel, was friendly but in the end, the property was simply not well cared-for or comfortable in any way. Please book ahead in this popular area because Clifden is a lovely town and the trip could have been so much more enjoyable.
