Play on the sand or swim. The Creek is tidal so for the young you should go to the beach at low water when they can swim, splash and play in shallow water. There is also a nice sandy beach at low water.
Swimming from the pier is quite safe there is no undertow, just be aware that the tide forms a current as it flows and ebbs and do not try to fight it, look at the flow before you jump in and go with it. on the (website hidden) "Querrin sailing" there is a link to a tide (website hidden) kids spend every evening of their holidays jumping off the pier and swimming around.

The Peace, the quiet at night, looking at the stars from the patio after a BBQ. Walking the cliffs in the morning, bringing the kids crab fishing from the pier.
Fresh baked bread and coffee looking out over the sea. The fire and a bottle of wine at night (with the kids happy in the playroom).
You Must have a Car.
Go See the Cliffs of Moher by all means they are wonderful, but drive south from Kilkee (6 KM away approx) towards Loop head on the Cliff road if you want to experience miles of awesome cliffs, seastacks, rolling waves and the most wonderful sunsets you can imagine. Like me you may prefer them.
Fantastic place to stay - really a home away from home, warm and inviting and a really well supplied kitchen if you plan to cook for a few or for the family. If you are looking for a great place to relax then look no further - a wonderful balance of peace and tranquility at Querrin Creek and the buzz, music and restaurants of Kilkee and Kilrush. The lay out of the house is terrific with plenty of space for the family to get together or for parents and kids to do their own thing. Although we didn't need the open fire it would have been a great fire to relax in front of in the evening!! Instead we took advantage of the good weather and sat out on the patio and used the large outdoor table for evening meals. The secure garden was terrific for our kids who enjoyed playing badminton (rackets in the shed) and water games!! One highlight for our kids was jumping off the pier, a 2 minute walk away, and every high tide they wanted to be down there whether it was to jump into the water, fish for crabs or play tennis in the hand ball court (rackets also at the house). Tim was a fabulous host providing lots of great recommendations to make our stay a wonderful success...we would definitely return again one day!!
