Stopped by fresh off the ferry on the way to Cliffs of Moher. Friendly service. GREAT seafood chowder. Six of us traveling as a family enjoyed a variety of dishes. Everything was good. Sea better than turf. Well worth the stop.

The food was lovely and the portions generous without being excessive. The staff were pleasant and did not mind when we altered our order. The only 'bad mark' would be that the service was a little slow, but we changed our order and the restaurant was quite busy at the time. I would actually rate it 4 and 3/4 if... More

We stopped in on our way to Kilkee and had a fabulous meal. The crab cakes were wonderful, as was the Shepherd's pie. The chef came out to check on the food and we were so impressed with his hospitality. Excellent service and beautiful traditional pub interior.

Our server Attracta was very attentive and kind enough to allow me to keep a Guinness glass! Highly recommend a trip to Kelly's if you are in the Kilrush area. Also... More

We called here on the recommendation of some 'foodie friends' on our recent visit to Co. Clare. We were well impressed with Kelly's, with its varied and extensive menu. We enjoyed two sumptuous aged steaks with sides, cooked to perfection by the Chef - who together with his wife owns and runs this friendly bar/restaurant. We enjoyed two glasses of... More

Had a nice lunch here and would go back again. The chowder was very good - as was the main course and they serve good coffee. What else can you ask for !

If ever you are passing through Kilrush, be sure and stop for a bite to eat at Kelly's. There is a fab selection to choose from & everything is so fresh. The fish is particularly good, the staff are friendly & attentive. It's a credit to its owners Ginny & Ian.
