Three of us stayed here in April. I requested that my dad have a ground floor room, and myself and my daughter shared a room on the first floor. (Rooms 16 and 17) Our room was enormous! 2 double beds and a single, plus armchairs in the bay windows to enjoy the lovely views towards the beach across the road.

The décor in the reception areas and in the breakfast rooms were lavish and we enjoyed the lovely lamps, chandeliers and ornaments. I would be worried if I had small children!

Breakfast was excellent. A great menu with plenty to choose from. Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs was a favourite, whilst my dad favoured the traditional Irish Breakfast. My daughter was happy with cereal, toast and mixed fruit.

Hickies bar was welcoming and we were able to sit in the side bar with my daughter as the main bar was for adults after 7 pm. The live music in the bar did not disturb our sleep at all. The locals were welcoming and the staff very helpful.

We certainly hope to return.

Dear Jaq41,
Thank you for taking the time to review us here at the Bay View so glowingly, it genuinely means a lot to us! I'm glad that you found the décor in-house to be tasteful, the small kids usually can't reach the chandelier so that's okay! I'm also delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed your breakfast with us, the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is always a favourite! I'm happy that we could accommodate your daughter in the back bar.

Thank you once again for your custom and your recommendation, I look forward to having the pleasure of welcoming you again in future!

Kind Regards,
John Hickie

Had dinner Sunday night at the new "Pier View Restaurant" and will definitely be back. The staff, food and over all experience was second to none. Fresh local menu in ideal setting overlooking Kilkee bay this new restaurant is a big plus to Kilkee. Complimentary fresh home cooked bread was wholesome brown and a white with hints of tomatoe, delicious!!! The fish cake starters and accompanying salad and dressing were presented beautifully and tasted superb. Mains were ordered from the specials for the night, melody of fresh fish and again top marks for presentation, taste and cooked to perfection. Sides were fresh boiled baby potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots, again all fresh and superb.
Beautiful range of fresh home made desserts and being able to order from the bar is a real plus too. Definitely worth a visit, this family run local bar and restaurant will be a real hit. Great service and value for money, cant wait to go back!!!

Only opened on 11th April 2014 The Pier Restaurant at Bay View B&B in Kilkee is a fantastic new place to eat in Kilkee. The Menu is excellent and very good value for money. The décor is very relaxing and clean and nothing is too much trouble for the owners and staff alike. I can not recommend it highly enough. Thank you for the excellent service. As resident of Kilkee I did not stay at the B&B.

We stayed for two nights and didn't expect the high quality. We had the two family rooms and they were actually suites. Beautiful white sheets and quality furniture . Beautiful views. Excellent for families. Great breakfast with great staff. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going back. Thank you .

Stayed here in February and found it to be a wonderful place with great food and friendly people.

Even though there had been some strong storms that effected the town the staff maintain excellence throughout our stay here.

I would love to return in the summer and would find it an ideal place to stay again .
