This b&b was great value for money and was perfectly located, just 15 minutes into town, right on the ocean. Our host, Sharon, was great fun and so nice! We felt so welcome and she was really helpful. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

We booked interconnecting family rooms consisting of one double and one twin room. What we got was a double room which lead to a small hallway/wardrobe area with an en suite on the right and straight ahead was clearly once a large porch but is now a tiny bedroom. The floor is still tiled, its extremely cramped and the only... More

The room was very clean and the location was excellent. Right by the ocean and a short walk to the Latin quarter in downtown Galway to the east. The neighborhood was quiet and the staff were friendly.

Had 2 nights at Ocean Crest and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in between city centre and Salthill restaurants. It's in walking distance to both and located opposite the Galway Bay. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Sharon who made myself and my parents welcome with a lovely cup of tea. Room was spacious, clean and... More

We would stay here again in a heart beat. Our hosts Sharon and Rafael were pleasant, friendly, outgoing and truly cared about our stay. Our twin room was super clean and the bathroom emaculate! Breakfast was always good with eggs,bacon, toast, yogurt and cereals. Ocean Crest is across the street from the beach and the boardwalk into city centre. It's... More

We stayed in this B&B for two nights. There is a private parking on the rear. Our room was rather small and the carpet was torn up in front of the bathroom so we had problems in opening and closing its door. The bathroom itself was small and not really "nice". The hostess did her best to be warm. Irish... More

We stayed in 10 B & B's while in Ireland for 2 weeks. Ocean Crest was our worst choice. It needs a complete renovation! The manager was nice and breakfast was fine but the rooms and amenities were below standard in every area. We would not recommend this B & B to anyone.

Stayed here for three nights in the family room on ground floor. We received a very warm welcome which is always much appreciated. The room itself was ok, its not my cup of tea decoration-wise but it has everything you need:bed, tv, kettle and tea, mirror, small table and chair,wardrobe, etc and more importantly it was clean. It did get... More

Stayed in this B&B for one night in June. It looks really modern from the outside but the bedrooms could use an update. The towels and bed linen were probably the worst I've ever come across - thread bare towels and linen from probably the 1980's. However, the hostess was really warm, welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was great. Not sure... More
