The Pollock holes are just at the start of Kilkee cliff walk but even if you don't want to walk the cliff just to sit around that area is so relaxing, when the tide is out you can spend time walking all around that area, walk right out to the water but be careful to check tide times, swim in the Pollock holes and after have a coffee in the cafe ,its a lovely spot you wont go wrong.....

Beautiful to swim in, three naturally occurring pools in which the locals and visitors have swam for generations and continue to do so. Diving is not recommended as rocks shift with the tides.

Great place for a few laps, or even a great swimming hole for with friends. With lots of sealife in the area, great for snorkeling or diving.

Beautiful natural swimming pools with lots for the kids to explore and discover. They swam even on a cold day! Definitely worth a visit if you in the area. Very popular cafe above was well priced too.
Be careful to check the tide times as only accessible 5hrs a day!
