Im from Kilkee so have a great love of this little piece of paradise. Kilkee has that unique horseshoe beach and magnificant sunsets.
The Diamond Rocks Cafe sits almost on the cliff edge on the west end of the town. A statue of A statue of Richard Harris stands proudly outside displaying the great bon viveur in a racket ball pose.
The Cafe is run by Margaret and Kevin, two locals with Anna running the bust kitchen. They have just completed a major renovation adding a lot more table space. Diamond Rocks is exactly what a cafe should be in a holiday resort. The staff are well trained and very warm. Locals and visitors chat and the sound of laughter often rings throughout the place.
While enjoying top quality soups/mains and an eclectic cake menu, patrons can watch the Atlantic washing up on to the shore. Kids, pets, buggies all adorn the place and it is a great way to end a walk along the Cliffs.
If you visit Kilkee or are going to the Light house in Kilbaha don't miss this place.

Spent the weekend in Kilkee recently and have to say i came here everyday. Breakfast was served quickly and was top quality. Managers are always friendly and willing to help, as are the other members of staff. The cake is out of this world!! Would travel every weekend for the cake. I personally find Ireland to be a bit pricey but it seemed to be in line with the rest of Kilkee. Plus you don't mind paying when the food is that good. Coffee shop has been recently refurbished and looks great. And the views ... well you will have to see them to believe them.

The food is okay, and the service is fine too, but the prices at this cafe have to be seen to be believed. Some things are almost double the local price just because they have the location nearest the cliffs. Rip off merchants.

Had the best piece of carrot cake I've ever eaten and a fantastic mocha today. It's been totally refurbished and is much bigger. Very nice
