Kelly's was the perfect place to feed our hungry group of four. I loved the king scampi--the best meal I had during my two week trip. We were lucky enough to have a long chat with Ginny, one of the owners. The food was excellent!

I have travelled to the west cost of Ireland many many times. I have to admit that good food is hard to find and at times, just not good at all. Kelly's bar and steak/seafood restaurant is very good indeed and already had a trip advisor badge displayed, which I spotted as I entered. The fresh fish chowder soup and... More

We chose Kelly's based on their Trip Advisor #1 ranking.... and we were not disappointed! We like early dining as we avoid crowds and get the opportunity sample the kitchen and services at their best. We also sometimes get to talk with owners and management to learn their stories. Such was the case for our 17:00 dinner @ Kelly's with... More

If you have read any of my other reviews, you are likely tired of me talking how great and friendly the waitstaff is, how ample the portions are and how no one hurried us as we plated a family game if Euchre (mid west American card game), but Kelly's was a perfect stop. We had left Quin, near Ennis, middle... More

What a warm, welcoming bar and restaurant. Great atmosphere. We had seafood chowder and crab cakes, and they were both amazing. We talked with the owner for about an hour, and we ended up wanting to move to Kilrush. Nice, nice people.
