We stayed at Bayview again on our recent visit to Kilkee. It is a large B&B with rooms on the ground & 1st floor. Some of the rooms have a view of the bay others look onto the street on either side & can be a bit hit & miss. Bayview is a long established B&B in Kilkee, very traditional... More

We had room number 11 - the worst room in the hotel. The room was nicely decorated with a good size bathroom but the temperature of the room was much higher than the other bedrooms and the heating was not switched on. Nor were they air-conditioned. When we opened the double glazed window, to our surprise we had to confront... More

Lovely, clean rooms and a lovely welcome! We had a four day stay here in two rooms. The family room for my daughter, son-in-law and two girls was enormous with a great view of the sea. Our room, also with a sea view was really nice. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. There is a pub downstairs which... More

A central location with a one minute walk to the promenade and the beach. The room was recently renovated and very clean and fresh. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very clean. Breakfast 8/10. Quite good but not the best Irish breakfast I have ever had. A lovely large pot of tea with the breakfast was most welcome for... More

After being at another nearby restaurant which wouldn't cater for vegetarians it was great to find this place, the staff were so friendly and made an effort to offer us vegetarian dishes that weren't even on the menu. Food was also great and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and looking over the lovely kilkee bay

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend and the Bayview were very accommodating to us. We had left it very late to look for accommodation and managed to find us a room in their hotel for our break. The room was gorgeous, comfy bed and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was also delicious and a good selection of hot food to... More

We had a lovely stay at Mary Hickey's small family run hotel in the centre of Kilkee. It has charming rooms overlooking the ocean to the front. Our breakfast was lovely and we ate in the small conservatory (again with sea views) and watched as outside our window, the local catch of the day was sold fresh on the street... More

Immaculate twin rooms overlooking the beautiful beach of Kilkee. A warm welcome by the landlady and a fine Irish breakfast the following morning. A real luxurious stay - felt like a hotel!! At 40pp for bed and breakfast I was immensely happy with the service we received and the standard of the rooms. The bathroom was a bit small but... More
