There are of course many beachside hotels and resorts, but if you want something cozier and all your own, you can’t miss this list of Airbnb vacation rentals in Kilkee.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 20, 2024.
