Having just returned home from my wonderful trip to Ireland, I must comment on an incredible experience that I had at the Bay View Hotel. Upon checking in, when I was told that our room had a double bed, I was quite upset since I knew my husband and I would not sleep well in such a small bed together. When John saw how worried I was, he immediately offered to call around to see if there was a larger room available in the area for us. He said it was important that we were comfortable!! Within minutes, he found us another place to spend the night. I was SO impressed with his determination that we enjoy our evening in Kilkee and considering the late hour that we were checking in, there is a strong possibility that the room went unsold. So if you want to stay at a hotel where the management cares about you, then definitely stay at the Bay View Hotel.

We arrived one day late, and stayed one additional day due to flight cancellation in the US. Mary and John were extremely accommodating with our reservation for the adjusted stay, with no additional charge. Bar and food was delicious. Staff was professional and friendly. We loved Ireland! It exceeded our expectations! We loved our stay at the Bay View!

Hi Mary / John, Kevin We had another great week, great food, great Craic very comfortable accommodation, brilliant staff. Breakfast was great, sorry for the early starts Thank you all Hopefully we will see you in March 2020 Regards Francis Rock Bureau Veritas

This was a lovely stay ! Myself and my boyfriend stayed for one night. Lovely decor in the room. We had dinner which was really tasty and the service was impeccable. We had a tiny issue in the room and management went above and beyond for us. We really appreciated their kindness. Would highly recommend this hotel for food or to stay!

More rain than sun but obvs that's not what you come here for. Excellent food, great staff and very comfortable room, large bathroom, unfortunately, no bath, shower looked good but was very under par power wise. Enjoyed our stay, not our first and we hope to be back. D. Smyth

Stayed at The Bayview from 12th to 14th July 2019. What an absolutely fantastic experience. Everyone was so nice and helpful especially Michael, he is a credit to you. We were over for my niece's wedding in Doonbeg and we could not have been made more welcome. Mrs H. was particularly kind and very welcoming and accomodating to all of us who stayed there for the wedding and there was quite a few of us. Had a wonderful meal in the restaurant on the Friday night and it was delicious. Will certainly be returning hopeful in the not too distance future. Ruth & John.

Best hotel stay for me since Abu Dhabi in February! Says something about this family run Irish seaside hotel, a gem in Kilkee. Everything was spot on from check in to checkout and we were really looked after by the friendly staff and enjoyed the location overlooking the sea front along with some very good food. Bedroom overlooking the front with a nice seating area in the bay window, comfortable king sized bed and a well lit en suite with bath and shower over. Delighted to find a coffee machine in the room along with dressing gowns. Only negatives was the size of the TV and it's location above the wardrobe and the towel size in the bathroom. Of note was the freshly cooked breakfast in the morning and some very good food in the bar which I have reviewed separately. No dedicated car park but plenty of on street spaces covered by hotel CCTV. Have earmarked a return later in the year...

Stayed here last weeekend for 2 nites for run kilkee. Fantastic location,modern room and amazing shower. Breakfast was very good,cook to order hot breakfast and buffet continental. Staff were very nice. Have booked for next year on departure.

What a fantastic venue - we were out all day and really hungry and came to the Bay View (Hickey’s Bar) and had food in the bar at 7:30pm. From the greeting by the bar man on entry to the table service we were so well looked after. The food and service was fantastic we couldn’t have asked for better. Plenty of good food well cooked. Will definitely be back.

Had absolutely fabulous stay at the Bay View Hotel last night. Perfect place for short couples getaway. Room was spotless and very specious with a boutique feel to it plus a glorious view on the bay. Staff very friendly and helpful(including lovely accommodation ladies). Breakfast also worth mentioning served in a lovely dining room. Definitely will come back! Julita and Fernando room No.3
