This is a great hotel. We were able to park right outside and were welcomed by staff. Our room was spacious, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom decent. After a long day travelling it was so good to be able to eat in the delightful restuarant - we both had surf and turf (the lobster and steak were delicious).... More

The building itself is very well set up with a lovely view and a nice range of fine drinks in the bar for a nice sit in out of the weather. The staff themselves look very nervous but try their hardest and are good company. The food is nice, not enough of it though for the arm and leg you... More

Arrived at 3, room wasn't ready but no problem there as guests do check out late which has a knock on effect on arrivals, Liz at reception was so warm and welcoming, a true lady. Stayed in room 15 on the 2nd floor, which offered a view of the sea and the room was spotless including our huge bath! Food... More

As soon as we walked through the doors of this hotel, we felt right at home. From the friendly bar/wait service to the quality of food served. Then we were taken to our booked room. It was lovely, more modern than expected from this old quaint hotel. The room was very clean and well appointed. We were told we may... More

Friendly staff, we had a very spacious room with great view over the bay and a very good bed. The hotel has a few nice areas to relax: the lounge room next to the reception with fireplace, the conservatory for breakfast with view over the street and bay, the bar for a drink or game of pool in the evening....

I have been to this Restaurant on numerous occasions and it has never disappointed me in it's food fare or friendliness of the staff. Situated at the top of O'Curry St. with magnificent views of the bay and West End area, which can be had from it's closed Veranda type restaurant at the front of this hotel. In Kilkee you... More

We have visited the Stella Maris twice. In May, it was a joy to stay with great accomdations and food. However, in June they start a music program that resonates through the building. Last night it was through 1 am and tonight, Sunday, it is again loud. Their only solution is to offer earplugs, which are ineffective. I would recommend... More

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way from Donegal to Killarney and were disappointed. From the reviews, I expected more. The room and bathroom were clean, which is always a plus, but the bedroom felt worn and needed updating. When we arrived there was no one at the front desk and my husband had to go... More

The Stella Maris was a nice little hotel to stay in for a few nights. The rooms were fresh, clean and specious which isn't maybe what you would expect from down stairs,the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was poor.
