Booked a 2 night stay in this lovely hotel in Kilkee. Everything was great from location, atmosphere and friendly and attentive staff. A special mention for Aidan, Caitlin, Kevin and Maggie at reception. I will certainly visit again in the future and would highly recommend.

We stayed at the Bay View Hotel and it was excellent. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We chose to have dinner in the bar, the food and the attention from the owner and staff was fantastic. We had breakfast in the restaurant the following morning and it was very nice and leisurely. All in all the Bay View was exceptional. We’ll definitely be back for another visit.

Being a seasoned traveller for 40 plus years both Business and Social the West Clare area is very familiar to me. Recently I was fortunate enough to secure accommodation in the Bay View Hotel owned and managed by the Hickey Family along with a wonderful helpful crew. To say the overall experience was great would be an understatement, it was Just Excellent in every way, Welcoming Staff, Magnificient Room overlooking the beautiful Kilkee Bay and Evening Meals to suit the most varied and discerning Palate with a Breakfast freshly cooked and beautifully presented while enjoying the views out to the Wild Atlantic. The Bay View does Irish Tourism and the Hospitality industry a great service and with the Pandemic hopefully on the wane it’s great to know we have these super places to stay in and enjoy. Staying in Kilkee offers you the opportunity to visit with great ease one of the most beautiful areas in all of Europe, Kilkee Cliff Walk, Bridges of Ross, Loop Head, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and the Burren, you will be so eager to return I assure you… Very well done to all in the Bay View Hotel and it’s adjoining Hickies Bar…

Stayed just for one night on recommendation of two friends. Really enjoyable. Young staff, from reception to restaurant but very well trained and professional. Chose to eat in bar , rather than restaurant. Really excellent food, beautifully presented. Heartily recommend the Bayview.
