Video of Kilkee, County Clare, Republic of Ireland

Kilkee (Irish: Cill Chaoi, meaning "Church of Chaoineadh Ita - lamentation for Ita") is a small coastal town in County Clare, Ireland. It is located midway between Kilrush and Doonbeg on the N67 road. The town, one of the most famous resorts in Ireland, is particularly popular as a seaside resort with people from Limerick City. It has been a resort since the early 19th century when it was featured on the front page of the Illustrated London News as the premier bathing spot in what was then the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

The town retains some of its 19th-century Victorian feel, and also features many modern amenities. The horseshoe bay is protected from the Atlantic Ocean weather by the Duggerna Reef. Kilkee has regularly been awarded the Blue Flag by the European Commission. In 2006, a statue of Richard Harris was unveiled in Kilkee by actor Russell Crowe who spoke very highly of the town saying it had some of the best public walks in the world. Summer holidays in 1950s Kilkee are evocatively described in Homan Potterton's memoir, Rathcormick (2001).

In 2007, Kilkee hosted Cois Fharraige. The festival was held over 3 days from September 7 - 9 and consisted of live music and water sport events including a surf competition In Spanish Point. Although Cois Fharraige was a new event it managed to attract some well-known bands such as Republic of Loose, Fun Lovin Criminals, The Blizzards, Ham Sandwich, Ocean Colour Scene and Delorentos.

The town is undergoing considerable expansion with the development of hotels, estates and other forms of housing. During the peak tourist season the beach or "horse shoe" bay is crowded as the population expands to 25,000 during the summer months. The town's main source of income is the tourist industry, so many recreational places have been established, including restaurants, pubs and cafés.

Kilkee is known for its many walking routes which lead out of the town over the cliffs in both directions.

Kilkee is also a mecca for divers. Jacques Cousteau declared that it was the best diving spot in Europe. The Kilkee Dive Centre, Kilkee [1] is a fully equipped SCUBA diving centre which caters to both beginners and experts. Divers can go to depths from 10 metres (32 feet) to 45 metres (147 feet). The diverse marine life attracts divers from around the world.
