Spent two nights in Stella Maris Hotel in the small town of Kilkee and every part of the stay was perfectly fine and adequate. The Stella Maris is an old hotel but clearly has had a nice refurbishment. The downstairs area had a lovely seating area with a roaring fireplace, veranda where breakfast and dinner is served and a bar area. We were warmly greeted and made to feel right at home.
The room (number 2) consisted of two double beds separate by a wall. Each side of the room had its own TV and desk. The windows were also padded for seating, which is probably very nice during spring and summer months. There was also WiFi in the room.
On the whole, the room was perfectly fine, clean and spacious. There are only two downsides to the room. The bathtub is in desperate need of replacing. I would also question the height of the complimentary hand wash and lotion near the sink (very minor niggle). Otherwise, no real complaints
The second downside is that number 2 is located directly above the bar area. Although we were not greatly disturbed by the noise it could be heard once the TV was turned off. However, this did not impede or disrupt sleep. Nonetheless, during the busy high season months or during a function, I see can this being a problem.
There is no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The food served in the restaurant (lunch and dinner) was also good, as well as breakfast. No complaints about the quality (or quantity) of food.
A special note is that during our stay the west coast of Ireland was experiencing the worst winter storms for a very long time. The staff provided me with regular updates on the road conditions and flooding in the area. All advice was much appreciated!
