“LOCATION LOCATION”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

This hostel is in the heart of the heart of ballybunion. A group of 8 of us went down for a hen and though not gone on hostels, gave Ocean a go as one of the girls boyfriends is from there and said it was new. It was all so easy and such fun, we took three rooms so had plenty of space and everything was brand new.
Once ready to hit the town we only had to walk down the stairs and the ocean bar is great. We met the barmen Sean and Karl and they were great fun and turned out were the owners,met them in the night club later! Two nights, pretty worn out but as for places to stay, would not look further, this is it if you want to have some fun, no taxis, no soar feet, not many rules!

Stayed one night in June , well located hostel in middle of town. Owner friendly and helped with storing my surf board. Plenty of space in hostel and beside a good pub which is where I checked in. Lots of options for food nearby. Did not use the kitchen area but it looked grand, usual stuff cookers etc.

Room Tip: I took a double room towards the back of he building and it was quiet. Dorms also available.

Spent three nights here and would highly recommend. Great variety of accommodation so suits all ages. Facilities excellent. Very welcoming atmosphere with spacious common room to have breakfast, meet other hostellers or just relax. Bar downstairs bright and spacious with good variety of seating so again suiting the young and not so young like me!
