We only had fish and chips, beer and whiskey, and some food samples, but the food was great, really surprisingly (for a tourist) good. Unfortunately, you have to put up with those damn members! (Just kidding, the club members were great company!)

I have never had lunch or dinner here so can't comment on the food but have been several times over the last few years for coffee and scones (which are home made and delicious). There are several reasons I really like it. Firstly the views; stunning, you are up on a height looking over the sea and back at kilkee,... More

The golf club sits on the edge of the Atlantic and is a real... More

I heard the food was amazing at Lir and was very excited to try it when I visited Kilkee. The food was most definitely delicious! The first day I tried the beef brisket sandwich which was an absolute delight. The potions were big which was surprising considering the quality of the food. I went back the next day and had...

Another beautiful dinner at Lir. My partner had a mouthwatering steak and lobster while I had the turbot. Sides were lovely with chunky chips and lovely roasted potato and veg. Beautiful chocolate truffle cake and a lovely plum and hazelnut tart. Wine was also very reasonable, starting at only €21.50. We came back for breakfast the following morning and had... More

The food at Lir is way above average, in fact it's excellent... It's a little bit pricey but for that special occasion, it's hard to beat in Kilkee. Added to the food you have very friendly staff and an Atlantic view to hold your attention between courses. All in all, highly recommended.

The food here is really excellent. To start my partner and I had mussels and chicken wings. The mussels were some of the best I had ever eaten and they had been cooked with chorizo which gave them a slight spicy taste. The chicken wings were cooked in a barbecue sauce and were very tasty. For main course we had... More

This is a golf club so one has to bear that in mind regarding ambiance- it can be full of golfers! However the restaurant has specials every day, really fresh fish and a varied menu to suit those snacking or those wanting a full dinner experience. Very nice, enthusiastic young staff and pleasant maitre D. Casual setting with wonderful sunset... More
