The Pollock Holes
Kilkee, Co. Clare
The Pollock Holes in Kilkee are natural sea pools and are a favourite swimming spot. Relax in the sea water and feel energised.

Located on the West End of Kilkee in Duggerna Reef, access is from the car park beside the Diamond Rocks Café.

One can walk across the flagstones to large sea pools at low tide and immerse oneself in the clear water of the Atlantic. Swim or snorkel at your leisure. The pools range from 1 to 2.5 metres deep and 20-50 metres in size.

They get their name from the small pollock who inhabit here for six months of the year. Check in advance for tide times and exercise caution on the flagstones when wet.
