A trip to Kilkee would never be complete without a visit to The Pollock Holes.Have been going there since I was a young child , and always remember running around , gazing into the smaller pools. Great swimming spot after the tide goes out. hem

Natural swimming pools when the tide is out and plenty of opportunities for children to explore smaller pools with their fishing nets. Lovely cafe above the rocks, just wish it was open later in the evening. Walking distance from Kilkee beach but there is parking...More

THE Pollock Holes are as good as promised. Great place for families to gather when the tide is out. Suitable for toddlers and young children with adult supervision. Great for adults for paddling. Highly recommend.

On the cliff walk in Kilkee, you will encounter the Pollock Holes. Mesmerizing. Be careful. Don't fall in!

These three Pollock holes are located at the West-end of Kilkee, just before you take your cliff walk! They are one of Nature's gifts!.. The first Pollock hole is the most shallow, therefore suitable for Children (who can swim!). The two Pollock holes further out...More
