Travelled with 7 other golfers/friends and had a wonderful time. Nice, clean, fun hotel and restaurant. Food is very good. Service Excellent. Bar charming. Proprietor Joan is hands on with everything. Perfect location down the street from Ballybunion golf club, and down the road from Doonbeg. The town is great with a better than expected weekend nightlife, all within walking... More

I was in Kilcooly's Country House for dinner with a few friends recently. We really enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly. It is a lovely tranquil place to go with beautiful surroundings. I will be giving Kilcooly house another visit on my next trip to Ballybunion. Would recommend highly.

If you are traveling through or staying in Ballybunion, Kilcooly's Country House has a very good restaurant, pub and veranda to enjoy a beverage and/or a bite to eat. The old hotel atmosphere is quiet and relaxed along with a wait staff that is cordial. We enjoyed the glass enclosed veranda overlooking the garden and parts of the town square.... More

Part of me does not want to write a review of here as I don’t want to spoil the secret that is Kilcoolys. I have been here on several occasions when I am looking for some peace, quiet and to recharge the batteries . The accommodation is quiet and peaceful and as it’s a small venue you feel totally relaxed... More

There is no better place in the world than Ballybunion. A large bit of this is due to the O'Connors who are the highly talented and welcoming proprietors of the Kilcooly's Inn. This was my second visit and next year when I come I will definitely stay at Kilcooly's again. The pub is everything you imagine an Irish pub to... More

We met up with old friends al Kilcooleys for Sunday lunch. We all enjoyed our meal, and the service was good. This is a lovely period house, and it is excellently run by the family. We return at every opportunity.
