Chippie (our hostess) should have been an interior designer. The whole place is beautifully quirky bordering on eccentric. Massive rooms with superb sea views. Great breakfast and a friendly welcome. The stairs could be a bit of a struggle with a suitcase. If we were younger and thinking of moving to Ireland we would love to buy this as our... More

We arrived by cycle to the B & B. Chippie immediately directed us to a safe place to put the bikes overnight. When we got inside she'd made tea and cookies for us. She showed us to our rooms which were up several flights of stairs (but offered great views of the harbor) and showed us around, asking if there... More

I stayed here for four nights in May and I can't imagine a better choice. Chippie greeted me by name when I walked in the door, and I felt like family from then on. The house is stunning, full of soaring spaces and lovely antiques. The rooms (all with ocean views) are airy, spotless, and cozy. Sleeping with the window... More

This review is long overdue. Stayed here last year (June 2014) for 4 nights. The owner, Chippy was most welcoming without being intrusive. On arrival, my sister & I were brought into the beautiful lounge and treated to a very welcome tray of tea & biscuits. The twin room we had was beautifully decorated and had a large en suite....

We stayed here mid September. What a fabulous place as well as hostess. This B&B is quite modest from the outside but its like walking into a palace when that front door is opened by a very smiling hostess known as "Chippy". There is quite simply nothing to fault this excellent house designed by her! The bedroom and bathroom (v... More

We stayed in a variety of hotels, guest houses and B&Bs while touring Ireland in Sep '14 (all of them good or better): Dublin, along the south coast and up the west coast to Galway. The Waters Edge B&B in Kilkee was our best overall accommodation experience. Our room was hugely spacious with a light decor, airy ambiance and big... More

We have just returned from 2 nights in Kilkee where we stayed at the Waters Edge B&B and it was such a treat. The house is furnished to a very high quality, spotlessly clean with break taking views, and the breakfast was spot on, as was the service. Needless to say that when in Kilkee again we will definitely stay... More

This B and B is a great place to stay. Fantastically big room facing the sea with a gorgeous colour scheme. The lady of the house, Patricia, is lovely and very helpful. The breakfast was beautiful both mornings and they offer real filter coffee too. The location is really good too. The whole house is very spacious, scrupulously clean and... More

The owner chippy is a very friendly lady who has a big welcome for you. Our room was fantastic. It is a bit like a dolls house with an amazing view over looking the bay. The breakfast is excellent and I would certainly recommend here. It's only ten minutes walk to the town with the beach on route
