Had my 30th birthday party here because of the pubs great reputation in kilkee and I couldn't fault a thing. The staff were so nice to deal with especially John who helped me organise it. The food was fab and the music was brill. We danced all night. Love this bar and would highly recommend it.

Had a great time there. Family run with great people. Great view and ideally located. Would go back in the morning. Food was great and the fact that there was a pub attached to it made it better. Both nights had entertainment. Excellent place.

There is a bar part of the B&B and there was great entertainment both nights with loads of tourists and locals. Breakfast was superb. Mary and all her staff were very friendly and... More

The room was large and had a bay window with seats to enjoy the bay from (over the road). It was directly above the pub, but the noise was not intrusive and stopped at 11, it was Monday though. In fact the guest snoring next door was louder. We were very comfortable and had a hearty breakfast before doing a... More

The highlights of our stay was the view from our room and the wonderful breakfast. An extensive choice, marvellous service and a beautiful ambiance. Thanks for the way you looked after us at breakfast.

Upon arrival my husband and I were rushed into a room without given any price information. Afterwards, we were pushed into eating dinner at the establishment. Although the facility is beautiful, the food is far from adequate. If you do choose to stay here go straight to your room, ignore everyone, do NOT eat the food, and do not expect... More

This B&B is also a busy pub which has live music every Saturday night from 10pm until 1am. It is extremely noisy in the bedrooms at this time and impossible to sleep. I really mean impossible to sleep. The pub did not empty until 2am and our room which was over the bar was very noisy until then.

We stayed here for two nights and it was beautiful. The reception area is so light and welcoming and the rooms spacious and clean with great views of the beach. The staff who we dealt with (the assistant manager Kevin) was superb he genuinely could not do any more for us and because he was a local could give us... More
