The Diamond Rocks cafe is by far the best place in Kilkee to enjoy a wonderful Breakfast while taking in the views of the waves crashing over the rocks at the at the Pollock Holes and across the to Georges Head. Excellent menu and our food was served up quickly. We will be back.

I stopped over for a tea. The view was amazing. The place was very nice too and their selection of food and beverages was great. It is just by the cliffs in kilkee so it is a perfect stop over to enjoy the nice view or to warm up and have a snack after your hike!

Great food, great service and a great location. I have visited the Diamond Rocks many times and I have never been disappointed. A real treat after a lovely walk around the cliffs.

Absolutely, never left down at the Diamond Rocks. Certainly not called Diamond Rocks for nothing. I always make a visit anytime I or when I'm with friends and family. I saw a wedding being set up there once. Wow is all i can say.....

Thank Carmel M
