WELCOME to The Daily Click, where we put the spotlight on businesses in County Clare with an online shop.

The Clare Echo is asking local people to get behind Clare businesses, and to think local before visiting international shopping websites. Today, we are showcasing the wonderful seaside town of Kilkee. Known for its thriving summer trade, Kilkee and its surrounding areas have some hidden gems when it comes to online shopping. Go ahead, give them a click and pamper yourself by making a purchase.

This series is part of The Clare Echo’s #clickforclare initiative, supported by Local Enterprise Office Clare.
