Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a fantastic Dive Centre and Diving Location. I dived Kilkee for many years when I was a little (means much) younger. Hadn't dived here for yonks as I've been abroad working. Came back a few years ago and kept wanting to dive Kilkee.

Last year - I got there. I meant to review the Centre then but it somehow didn't happen. I had many dives over the summer with Jaz and Darren from the Centre. WOW it was fantastic. They knew all the dive sites - and there are a lot to know - were easy to dive with - really good humoured and friendly - and had an amazing breadth of knowledge regarding the abundant marine life both local and further afield.

This year I have been back and dived again with them both again. Really incredible. The Centre has hot showers, toilets, changing rooms, place to rinse all your gear etc. etc. all luxuries I can assure you.

I will be back for many more this year and for many to come DV. Thanks guys for such a blast and look forward to catching up soon.

Thanks to the fantastic staff at Oceanlife Dive Centre my colleagues and I spent two days diving in Kilkee and Ballyvaughan in order to carry out scientific sampling for my PhD research. As an inexperienced diver, I immediately felt at ease by the professionalism, friendliness and local knowledge of both Jas and Darren at the dive centre and as a result I felt a much more confident diver at the end of the trip. For anyone thinking of visiting West Ireland, the beautiful wild Atlantic way coastline is a must for any diver and I couldn't recommend Oceanlife dive centre enough. Thank you so much for making our trip so enjoyable!

If you are thinking of diving on the west coast of Ireland, Oceanlife is a must. My opinion, the best diving in Ireland by a long shot
