Naughton’s Steak and Seafood, Kilkee.
Naughton’s is a sensitively-modernised 1870s pub and restaurant owned by Elaine Haugh and her husband, chef Robert Hayes.
Styled a Fish and Steak Bar, the accent is on seafood, and on simplicity, with seven starters and seven seafood choices offered, plus five meat dishes, and more seafood specials each night. There’s a children’s menu and a small but carefully chosen wine selection. Food is served from 5.30pm, and the restaurant is open for lunch in the high season. Fully wheelchair accessible.
