We stayed in the Kilkee Bay Hotel back in August with our then 10 month old baby. While the hotel is no 5 star luxury establishment (nor does it claim to be) it was the perfect location for us with a baby. From the minute we checked in and until our check out 4 days later the staff were so...

I stayed in the hotel with my partner for a wedding recently. We got the room for ridiculously cheap and including breakfast. The hotel could do with a bit of love with the rooms being dated and needing a serious renovation. Everything was clean and there was hot water in the taps so no complaints. The breakfast was surprisingly good...

Stayed Friday to Sunday. Arrived just before 9 pm to a closed restaurant, an empty bar , and food finished (despite it saying 9:30 in the room guide) - we spoke to a pleasant young man in reception who told us he thought the only food we'd get in Kilkee was chipper that late, and proceeded to direct us to...

We booked this hotel on Dealrush and I have to say it was the worst hotel we ever stayed in and I doubt if there is one near as bad in Ireland. On entering the hotel the reception lacked in every way, first the carpet was so stained with chair covering equally stained to match. We instantly got a bad...

I purched a voucher for the Kilkee Bay Hotel for an overnight stay. We decided to use it on Sunday night the 28th August. I read up the tripadvisor reviews before I went. They were not very assuring. But to our surprise the hotel was not as bad a portrayed at all. Definitely it does need TLC and a lick...

Absolutely horrific, Lorna the receptionist was this hotels saving grace. Rooms awful, two beds had no headboard, shower weak, TV small and ancient and room furniture mixed and matched from the 80s. Food in bar sent back as chicken was cold. Manager refused to speak with us. If you decide to go to kilkee pick somewhere else...anywhere else to save...

Stayed here for two nights with two young kids. After reading the reviews I was worried about staying if I'm honest. Hotel badly needs some TLC, the carpet on the corridor and stairs is shocking ( so dirty) , wallpaper peeling off the walls. Rooms are basic but absolutely fine for the money I paid. TV very small but again...

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. The dirty stained carpet on the stairs up to the second floor sent out alarm bells straightaway. The room was very basic. There was a black stain on the curtains and the carpet was also stained. Even the windows were in bad need of a clean. The grouting around the bath was...
