We had dinner there one night - food was great with generous portions. Drinks were good, too. The atmosphere was quite charming. It was quiet the night we were there, which was nice.

Ate here after a long drive. Very attentive staff, saw me struggling with WiFi and gave me the password without me asking. Lovely crab based meals which were reasonably priced. Would recommend. Even though they knew we were just passing through they were really friendly, just hope can visit again in the future.

My husband, children, mother and miscellaneous other family and friends join me in a weekly Lunch in Kelly's. It is homely, comfortable, relaxed and easy-going; which when you can have a gang of up 15 sometimes; is a serious bonus. We are fed well and at a reasonable price and any allergies, intolerances and the occasional fussy eater are always... More

Stayed in Kilrush for two nights and ate here both nights. The service was excellent two lovely young ladies who waited on the tables. The dishes were a good choice and reasonable in price. Food was excellent and arrived hot and tasty. Good choice to eat if in town.

Very busy when we arrived but we were greeted and seated by one of the waitresses almost immediately. My husband and I both chose to have Seafood as the menu stated Fresh Crab Cakes and Wild Atlantic Crab Claws. Delicious. Portions were generous . We had 2 lovely Irish coffees instead of dessert. Great atmosphere. Hope to return to Kilrush... More
