This is a commercially owned B&B so more like a hotel. Very nice location across from ocean. Five minute walk to many pubs and restaurants. Good breakfast, comfy room and bed. Easy to find with good parking.

Booked this with a few friends for a few drinks, really well located on the sea front and only a short walk into Galway itself. The room was really dated and in need of modernisation. The bathroom was really claustrophobic. The woman working there was lovely and really helpful though

Stayed here for 1 night for a night out. Parking out front which is handy, and just a 5 minute taxi ride into the town centre where all the restaurants and pubs are. Room was clean, beds a bit squeaky but comfy enough, old tv, ironing board to borrow if needed would stay again if in Galway. I was concerned...

Upon arrival, I was rudely informed by an employee (no idea who she was) that I had booked a single room and we could not stay. I kindly told the woman I specifically booked a room for two people. She even pulled out her booking (appeared hand written!) that showed we only had one guest. I know what I booked....

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.

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...

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...

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...
