“Perfect in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2011

I had my wedding here in April, and I have to say the whole experience from booking, organising, the day itself, the food, the bar and paying for the whole thing was perfect. The staff and managment were all unbelievably good to us. The day was made all the better due to the fact that we got lucky with the weather, and this made the views from the bar and the funcion room all the better. Every single guest raved about the food which was both delicious and generous. I had the presidential suite for the night and it was huge and really well decorated, I was in both the normal rooms and the apartments as well and they were teriffic.

My kids want to go there for our summer holidays this year and I have no hesitation in recomending the hotel for weddings or for a holiday.

Mark, Teresa and staff, thank you very much!!

We had our wedding in the Ocean Sands hotel in October 2010.
From our first meeting with Teresa, she and the staff were very helpful.
They provided us with loads of ideas and were a great help in setting up our day. The room was beautifully decorated and we got rave reviews on the food from all the tables.
The staff were so helpful on the day keeping us totally at ease and well looked after.
Lovely view of the ocean right outside the window.
Good Dance Floor.
We were very happy we went with the Ocean Sands for our wedding.
Thank you!

We had our daughters christening here and they catered for 30 adults and 15 children so we weren't the easiest crowd to serve. However the waiting staff, bar staff, receptionist, owner and manager etc. couldnt do enough for us. The play area downstairs was supervised and fantastic to give the kids a run around. The rooms were spotless and we had a fabulous view of the pier. The food was just fabulous, huge portions and excellent quality (even the cauliflower was crunchy, not soggy like in a usual group meal!). There was a lovely atmosphere and no task seemed too big for the staff. I actually left my camera behind and only rang 2 wks later and they had it held in reception for me, such honesty! If you are coming to Enniscrone please stay here, you will not be disappointed....

I stayed in this Hotel for 2 nites for my Sisters Hen party. On arrival we checked into out room to be greeted by a bottle of Champgane and box of chocolates and a card from the hotel wishing us all the best for our stay. We knew it was the start of a good weekend. From the beginning of making this booking everyone i spoke to was so helpful. There was a total of 30 of us for the weekend and everyone had an excellent experience. We had fab bar food on the fri nite and everyone was very happy. We had a meal included in our price but we saved that for the sat nite. The meal on sat nite was in the REstaurant. We had a set menu arranged with the hotel and they did not disappoint. Everybody was raving about the food. If i had a complaint it would be that there was too much of it but i dont see that really as a complaint!!! When we arrived back to teh hotel after out nite on the town we hit the front bar where they were happy to let us sing away and even arrived out to us with a couple of trays of Sambos. For a weekend away this hotel is a must. The beach within walking distance is a must!!

Came with friends for a girly weekend away, had 2 rooms next to each other. Staff on reception were very pleasent and checked us in straight away. The rooms were lovely, clean bedding, toiletries etc. We had breakfast and evening meal and both were very tasty and plentiful. We felt the hotel was great value for money and we have already booked up again for next year.

Had a recent one night stay and found the hotel just ok for the €90.00 rate.Got a very nice welcome at reception and were given directions to the underground car park which is very convenient & welcome on a rainy day.
Requested a sea view room when we booked and in fairness were allocated one when we arrived.The rooms are fairly sparse & finished in neutral colors with nice clean linens on the double & single bed in our room.
After a while in the room you can notice that the fixtures and fittings in the room and bathroom are basic and cheap and are already showing signs of wear and tear for a new hotel.You get the impression that the hotel was opened after one lick of paint and without the finishing touches.
Breakfast is standard fare & what we had was tasty but choices were limited .Here again the hotel let itself down with the carpet in the breakfast room really badly stained & torn .
The hotel is right in the center of the wonderful Enniscrone and could be good 3 star if they really concentrate on maintenance issues.

I stayed with some friends in this hotel in mid october in which we attended a wedding. The hotel itself is located in a fabulous location and the quality of the food is fabulous. The hotel was clean and the room I was given had amazing sea views with the room being spacious and bright. I really could not fault anything with this hotel, the staff were friendly and courtous. My friends stayed in the apartments and the views from these are simply amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants great food in a fantastic location!!
