We were really pleased with the location and the ease of on road parking despite the busy weekend, We arrived early and were allowed to check in early. We had a down stairs room which was very clean if a little dated (small old fashioned TV on top of the wardrobe) and there was a family with small children above... More

We all got the warmest of welcomes by the friendliest owner and her staff, all provided with lovely rooms,... More

On a recent visit had lunch in their restaurant. Lovely food, very well presented and the staff so pleasant. Attention to detail is very evident in the dining room. Beautifully decorated and overall a very delightful experience. Would like to return and stay a night sometime. MARY O TIPPERARY

Breakfast was perfect, Uncle JJ's homemade sausages were top notch. Throw in the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen(not normally into that sort of thing!!!). Thanks... More

As Cork people, we had visited most places in our own county and in neighbouring Kerry, but we can still remember our first glimpse of Kilkee as we rounded the corner by the Bayview. There before us was a perfect horseshoe bay with little boats bobbing up and down. We were immediately drawn to this special place! And have been... More

Stayed one night room clean and service was very welcoming. The food however was remarkable. We ate from the early bird menu and we're so impressed..for a couple of fussy London foodies... it was some of the best we've had. All products locally sourced and presentation was faultless.

Dear Cazzertrip, I'm happy to hear that we could satisfy your "fussy London foodie" palettes with our food at The Pier Restaurant! We pride ourselves on sourcing local, homegrown produce, which is as fresh on the plate as it was in the field or sea. Kind Regards, John Hickie More
