Clifden was one of our favorite spots on this trip - and Ocean Villa made it so relaxing! Carmel and Martin are such thoughtful hosts - they had a houseful of family and grandkids while we were there - and you would have never known! We were treated royally and our stay was very relaxing. Two nights and two great... More

If only the Sky Road was safe for pedestrians and cyclists then Ocean Villa and hosts Carmel and Martin would top of the list for a visit.The local authority must not expect what is now a narrow and busy tourist road to be shared with pedestrians and cyclists. If nothing is done there will be a tragic accident.

Brenda is the friendliest, most accommodating proprietor ever, and her son was a pleasure to talk with. Breakfast was excellent, basically anything you wanted was offered. Decor was a bit dated but all was very clean. View of water in a B&B strip outside of town. I would have easily given it 5 starts except for the queen bed. Every... More

We were well looked after in wonderful surroundings and we didn't want to leave this B&B. Accomodation was perfect and rooms very comfortable. Breakfast was too much good and I become fat. Get it booked, you will not regret it. Carmel and Martin were just superb ! Many thanks.

Driving the Sky Road is just your introduction to a magical Irish adventure. Carmel and Martin will greet you with traditional Irish humor and hospitality. Their home is rich in family history and lore. Ask Martin for a history of his youth on the island, including the "Station of the Cross." A good breakfast will start your day off right!

A few km from the charming town of Clifden along the amazing Sky Road, this b&b is in a fantastic spot, with the bay right outside. Incredibly quiet and peaceful. Great breakfasts, very friendly and helpful hosts.

I stayed in this B&B for two nights. Carmel and her husband were fantastic hosts. The breakfast was arranged for the morning before marathon. I was served everything I asked for the day before - very important before running 42km. I would highly recommend this B&B.

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
