Food is delicious!! And the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Warm and cosy by the fire, I was treated to a lovely meal and excellent coffee!! The WiFi was fast too! It was such a lovely treat and the perfect setting for my friends and I to have our catch up!

My three children and I are regular visitors to Kelly's Restaurant in Kilrush and to me it is definitely one of the best places to eat in the town and one of my personal favourites in Co Clare. They have a good selection on the menu and we dine out every weekend and it is one of the best places... More

We visited Kelly's of Kilrush on two previous occasions, last being in July 2012. We were always very pleased with both the food and service here in the past, but this time, it was very disappointing. We ordered Seafood Chowder, Soup, Tea, bread and butter. Waitress brought us a very small pot of tea with a single teabag in it.... More

I am writing in reply to your recent visit at Kelly’s as you put it “very disappointing”. You were seated right next to our open fire, one of our first tables in. The waitress greeted you with menus less than 30 seconds of your arrival. In less than 4 min you had your order taken. In addition to your chowder... More

Was just passing through the area and happened upon this hidden gem. Great place for evening meal. Easy to see that owners take care of their clientele and food was to sigh for.

I was looking for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and decided to try Kelly's pub based on the reviews. I had a 3 course Sunday lunch for under 20€ with a coffee. I started with the mini crab cakes followed by the Shepard's pie and finished apple pie. The food was absolutely delicious especially the crab cakes. Highly recommend! Fantastic... More
