Situated on the cliffs over looking the famous Pollock Holes.....Diamond Rocks is an excellent place for lunch or a quick coffee after having a swim in the beautiful clear waters around Kilkee.

We stopped in to have a nice hot chocolate and a coffee. Excellent views, great variety on the menu and superb staff. Prices are very good and this is a nice place to stop once you hike around the cliffs.

We stopped at Diamond Head Cafe after a few hours at Kilkee Cliff Walk (North side of the Bay). We were quite exhausted but needed a latte and some snacks.

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.
