“Consistently Good Food”
Review of Stella Maris Hotel

Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 December 2017

I revisited Stella Maris restaurant recently because on previous visits the food was very good. On this occasion I had smoked duck salad to start then I had fillet steak for main course. My dining companion had fried brie to start and hake fish for main course. All were excellent. I was told that the owner owned a butcher shop so it is not surprising that the meat was top quality. Why is a small hotel restaurant able to satisfy so many diners? Firstly, the prices are not expensive. The management seems to have sourced top quality wines from Italy, Spain and Portugal which are not big name wineries but are very reasonably priced. The restaurant is open every day of the year (except Christmas day) so this leads to consistency in the quality of food and the experience of the well-trained staff. Long may it continue.

This is a great place for Sunday lunch. Delicious food and always a welcome from staff. Great views of Kilkee Bay if you are lucky enough to be seated in the front veranda.

A regular stop on my way round the Wild Atlantic way. Consistently great service & fantastic food. Prices are reasonable, compared to pub prices. My favorite their lamb cutlets.

Off Season, a room in this hotel with a king size bed and a full Irish Breakfast is less than $100! The room was well appointed, with a tub. The hotel feels more like an inn. There is a nice sitting area downstairs, a bar with a pool table, a restaurant and an eating area off the bar, like a glassed front porch, but not the least bit drafty. We had a wonderful breakfast which included a buffet of juice, croissant, yogurt, seeds and dried fruit and a raspberry compote. After you help yourself, the waitress will take your order for a hot breakfast which can include eggs any way, meats, porridge. Everything was great.

The best lobster in Kilkee, and a great seafood chowder too. It is the only restaurant in Kilkee that accepted us for dinner at 8:30PM, thanks again :)
