I stayed at the Bay View for 2 nights. The room was very small but well appointed and clean. It is above a pub and there was a lot of music at night but reception had warned me about this on booking so I'm not displeased about it. There were two main elements I wasn't happy with. First was the... More

This B & B is well finished and the room we had was very well decorated, clean and lovely to relax in. A short hop skip to the beach and the hiking trails along the Cliffs of Kilkee. Breakfast was very good. The pub was a little disappointing as there wasn't any trad Irish music offered. Felt like one could... More

Just returned home from our fantastic holiday in Ireland - touring!! Our last stop off was in the Bay View Hotel, and what a fabulous short break it was. The room was room 10 and it was so comfortable and spacious, it was one of the best nights sleep we have had while in Ireland. We cannot fault anything, the... More

We hit Kilkee just after tourist season. I think this town exists mostly for the Irish as it seldom shows up in the guide books. From our room we could see the bay from a nice little alcove jutting out above the street. A very good and filling breakfast is included. The B&B is also a small restaurant with a... More

A nice place with a perfect view over the bay in Kilkee. We travelde in a group of four, sharing 2 rooms. Our room was base level, which means that our window pointed directly to the street. The blinds were closed 24/7, as we felt like being part of a shop window. Also, hot water was a bit tight -... More

Beautiful rooms with nice view, in a very good location - just a few meters from the seaside in Kilkee. Friendly and helpful staff, good Irish breakfast, a nice restaurant serving good food and a lively pub on the same building - offering lovely week-end live music sessions. All in all, you have access to everything without leaving the facility!... More

The finest B&B I have ever stayed in. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and luxurious. The staff were second to none for their friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency. Where else would you or could you stay in Kilkee? The breakfast was mouthwatering, best of local produce and cooked to perfection. This is truly a model business. Well done to Mary... More

We stayed here for one night last Saturday. There was a band playing that night and we were forewarned by Mary that It would be loud. We like live music so that wasn't an issue with us. We had dinner at the restaurant in the Bay View. I had the lamb and my husband had the steak. My lamb was... More

Based on the numerous ratings we expected a lot more. Correct but far from a warm welcome, average breakfast, noisy pub underneath our window, inefficient and inattentive staff during breakfast, buffet nearly empty at mid of breakfast time and replenished piece by piece only after guest remarks, etc
