Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great spot for a dip, however they are deep and only swimmers should enter! Would ensure to wear flop flops/ crocs as rocks are sore on the feet!

The pollock holes is a fantastic place to visit if in Co Clare. It is so beautiful to to walk around the holes and have a swim in all three. The water is cold but so refreshing. There is something so calming about these holes. Lovely to see the locals coming down in their dressing gowns for a daily dip.

It was extraordinarily cold, but it was fun, there was lots of space for multiple groups, it's just really cold

The beauty of this coastline never fails to take my breath away. If you haven't been here before you will be missing out if you don't

Swimming here is a fantastic experience. Water isn't too cold and on a sunny day it is amazing. Great to have the Diamond Rocks cafe nearby for a coffee/ lunch.

Parking and cafe there. Bring a towel and swimwear and have a lovely refreshing natural seaweed bath or without the seaweed, it's your choice, go for it!

As a keen wild swimmer I was really looking forward to this and I was not disappointed ... several holes to swim in and don’t get put off by the seaweed .. lots of people but still very special but keep an eye on the tides!

I watched the local Kilkee 20-Something’s swimming on an overcast day.

Looks like fun

These are not hot springs. The pools are filled with seawater after the tide goes out. Be prepared for a very refreshing swim.

Kilkee will never disappoint the outdoor enthusiast. My family could spend the entire day climbing on the rocks, searching the tidal pools and hitting the pollock holes if the tide is right. For the brave try the two diving boards for a dip in the bay.

We went out to swim here on a cold , wet day ... be sure to sit for the tide to drop very low as it was a bit confusing to see where you had to go... quite a long trek o er sloppy rocks but the swim was so worth it! We didn’t see any fish but water was so clear it was amazing looking underneath you! It was a cold , wet walk back to the car and it would have been nice to wash off wetsuits etc but there was no facility to do this .. had a warming cuppa in adjacent cafe which was nice.. would highly recommend having a swim here.
