The Espresso Bar Of Kilkee, Co. Clare, Moves Into Larger Premises

The Espresso Bar café of Kilkee, Co. Clare, has moved into larger premises.

The Espresso Bar was originally set up by its owner, Judi Kinnane, in the summer of 2018 for an initial three month trial period before becoming a permanent fixture as part of the Oceanlife Dive Centre, and it caters to everyone from beach-going families to walkers to sea swimmers and local scuba divers.

The business's new premises is a newly refurbished unit with added outdoor seating beside its previous premises, and overlooks Kilkee's pier and the bay.

Kinnane Statement

Kinnane, stated, "We are delighted with the new space. With a team behind the scenes working through the winter and with great support from suppliers and the local community, we have pulled it off.  It has been great fun creating the new menu in this gorgeous space with the beautiful view and we are thrilled with the reaction from our customers."

Cleaning Products, Produce And Opening Hours

The Espresso Bar uses completely chemical-free products to clean its premises, and, where possible, sources its produce as locally as it can to help support other small businesses.


During the last few days of July and throughout August, the Espresso Bar will be open Monday to Thursday from 9am until 6pm and Friday to Sunday from 9am until 8pm, with services from 6pm until 8pm being from its hatch only.
