A truly amazing house with views that cannot be believed. Having spent many fun family vacations in Kilkee as a child I wanted to bring my husband to see it for himself. Mary was very understanding when it took much longer than planned to arrive due to confusing roads etc. From the outside the cottage looks like nothing special but once inside you are immediately blown away by the beauty of the Atlantic right in front of you and the impressive decor and design of the cottage.

Understated, but with every comfort you need. Well stocked in respect to kitchenware/towels/outdoor furniture etc. Mary kindly left a bottle of wine to welcome us. After a quick tour of the house explaining a few quirks like how the locks worked we were left to enjoy the next few days. The weather we experienced was unusually nice so we were lucky. Kilkee not yet open for season so not too many dining options so was nice to be able to eat at house. Great location for discovering nearby spots like Cliffs of Moher on day trips. Easy walking distance to centre of town. Will be back.

Such a relaxing stay in a most beautifully restored period cottage on the water’s edge. Every comfort, beautiful views and Mary could not have been more attentive and accommodating. Looking forward to returning again sometime again in the future.

This is my 3rd stay at Cliff Cottage, so good I keep coming back! My family and I love this property, the views are exceptional, the quality of the  accommodation is second to none. Mary has thought of absolutely every need one could have. Booking and subsequent communication was easy and very efficient. Looking forward to our next visit!!

Enjoyed a very relaxing week in Cliff Cottage Kilkee. Beautifully appointed with incredible sea views from all the rooms. Very comfortable, clean and
stylish. Everything that one would want was provided and more. Lots of books to read and board games to play. A gorgeous warm stove for the
chillier evenings. Hot water whenever we needed it. So close to the beach that you could walk down in your swimwear. Would definitely recommend.

It’s rare to get the perfect combination of magical location, pitch-perfect renovated accommodations, and gracious and attentive host. This is it. We would have stayed a month just watching the tides roll in and out from that glorious deck and living room if we could have. Alas, we had to leave. Americans, shutting off plugs will be a new experience and one that makes so much sense. All tea kettles will feel slow after this one. And I bet your next Airbnb won’t furnish booties in a variety of sizes. Sigh. Mary’s cottage is The Best.
