The Strand restaurant has the best views in Kilkee overlooking Kilkee Bay. Magnificent when the sun is setting. Request a table by the window. The food is good, particularly the fish. Great specials. Prices are comparative to other Kilkee restaurants of the same caliber.

The barman was rude when I asked where would we sit as some... More

I never got to stay, I tried 3 times tonight for a room and gave all my details only for the system going down when I had given all my details (3times and there was a room available). I called and met the rudest man, when I tried to explain my situation all he said is we have no rooms... More

I went there recently with a couple of friends and my son, the food was lovely and very reasonably priced, it's overlooking the sea, the view is amazing. The staff were really lovely and couldn't be more accommodating, I can't wait to try their evening menu.

We visited The Strand for lunch on Monday 6th July we chose to sit outside to get full advantage if the beautiful scenery. We were more than satisfied with the amazing and friendly service. All the food was delicious especially the seafood chowder. Last year we were disappointed by the service but this year more than made up for it.... More
