The Pantry

Welcome to the Pantry

The Pantry Café, Deli and Cookery School was established in 1982 by home economics teacher Imelda Bourke, and since then has earned a reputation as one of Kilkee’s best food emporia, right in the heart of town. The café is open from Easter to the end of September and offers breakfast from 9am, as well as lunch, soups, salads and sandwiches. All the menus feature local home-made produce and cater for coeliacs. 
At the side leading to the beach the deli caters for all your needs with cakes to die for especially the carrot cake, fish pies, Salads and Fresh Salmon, crab and healthy food for all your parties while holidaying in Kilkee. Imelda supervises all the baking where she starts every morning at 5.30 am. The Pantry is a member of Loop head Tourism and also a member of the Loophead Food Circle

Holly's Café, a unique coffee shop offering a sophisticated array of ‘to die for’ desserts created

by two chefs that have worked in Michelin star kitchens in the UK and Ireland, recently

opened by the sea in Kilkee, Co. Clare.


The café, whose eye-catching pastries, cakes, and cookies along with their scones and soda

bread are all freshly made in-house each day, it comes as no surprise that Co-Owners, Holly Kelliher’s and Jon Butler’s picture-perfect pastries are as enjoyable to eat as they are pleasing to the eye. The breakfast, brunch, and lunch menus include a wholesome selection of homemade

breakfasts, salads and sandwiches using locally sourced produce. These are served alongside

specialty coffees made using beans from the Burren-based coffee roastery, Anam Coffee.


Holly's Café is open six days a week (closed Mondays), Tuesday to Sunday, 9.30 am to

5 pm.
