Kilkee, Co.Clare, was the terminus of the 1892 built narrow gauge West Clare Railway, which ran from Ennis to Kilkee and Kilrush on the Shannon Estuary. Despite modernisation, the West Clare line was closed in 1961 by CIE, and was the last surviving narrow gauge line in the country. The station building at Kilkee is similar to that of Kilrush, although not built in brick. The station also retains its WCR style canopy and platform, which has been filled in. The goods and engine sheds have been demolished however. The West Clare Railway company plan to reopen the line from Moyasta Junction to here, as most of the trackbed of the former line has been preserved.
