“Very acceptable.”
Reviewed 19 August 2007

Very helpful and friendly staff. We(my wife and I) arrived looking for somewhere to stay on a Sunday evening. The hotel was very busy but the manageress took time out to show us the room and make us welcome.The room was comfortable and clean.

The bar was packed and we ate in the conservatory at the front, but the food was very ordinary. If we had it to do again, we would go out to a restaurant in the town.

Yes, I would stay here again.

Stayed August 2007

Reviewed 18 May 2007

My wife and I were here 2 nights on our honeymoon and they put us in special 3rd floor room with view of the gorgeous horseshoe bay. For an older structure, everything appeared to be quite clean and refurbished (nice tiled bath area). Kilkee is quite small, but the Stella Maris was located ideally to a deli and the superb Naughton's restaurant. Very slow pace here in Kilkee so I would use this as a day or two break during your Western Ireland exploration. Stella Maris also has a pub (occasional live music) and patio seating where you can dine or relax with a Guinness or Irish coffee enjoying an Irish sunset. Thanks to the friendly staff for making our stay here so enjoyable!

Reviewed 22 October 2006

Stayed one night in this hotel - recommended by Lonely Planet. Maybe its high rating in this book is because it could be the only hotel open in the approaching winter season, but in hindsight, I think I would of checked around beforehand.
To be honest, the room was clean, huge bed, modern and updated...but in the new and fantastic bathroom there was a sign saying we could not use the shower as the water was leaking into the bedroom downstairs....so please use the hand held bath nossel!
Downstairs the hotel is old and in the light of day - dirty and tired. Chairs in the breakfast come lunch/dinner area were really grubby and the floor needed a good clean.
So it seems the refurbishment hasn't been extended to the whole hotel.
My suggestion is to shop around - or check your room before handing over your credit card.
Dinner for that one night was in a new restaurant over the road, Murphy Blacks. Friendly service, but food was served piping hot - like it was microwaved then crunched up in the oven, nearly burning our mouths!
Beach is just down the road and was pleasant to go for an after dinner stroll. Take the Loop head road for scenic sights - well worth it!
