Stella Maris Hotel Information


Welcome to The Stella Maris Hotel in Kilkee, Co. Clare, a privately owned hotel which has been run by Ann and Martin Haugh since 1997. The Hotel was built in 1880 and combines old style elegance with a unique location. It offers a spectacular setting in the centre of Kilkee town and overlooks one of the finest beaches in Clare. The Hotel provides fantastic Coastal access to the Loop Head Peninsula part of the Wild Atlantic Way, an area renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and voted “One of the Best Places to Holiday in Ireland” by the Irish Times. The Stella Maris rooms are designed to be warm and welcoming, and many have partial views across the bay and of the town. You will love dining in our sunny veranda which overlooks the beach and there is nothing like a coffee and a view to start your day. When you are ready to sample fresh local produce, our restaurant and bar offer a variety of tasty food lovingly prepared with a little pinch of Irish charm. Best of all get in some people watching from our sunny, sunken patio garden. We pride ourselves on offering a unique location, fresh local produce prepared with care and a friendly and helpful staff. If you are ready to explore the incredible coastal paths and the breath-taking cliff scenery or relax and watch incredible sunsets, give us a call. The Stella Maris Hotel is the ideal location as there really is something for everyone here.

Ann and Martin Haugh, the owners, have lived and worked in Kilkee for most of their lives. They know the area and understand what guests want to experience from their stay at the Stella Maris Hotel. Until recently Martin had a butcher shop in Kilkee so his expertise in finding just the right cuts of meat helps make the food at the Stella Maris even more enjoyable.
