According to Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland 1845 the village had a population of 460 in 1831, and 531 in 1841. It is situated on the Shannon Estuary, about 3.75 miles (6.04 km) east of Loop Head, and about 21 miles (34 km) west of Kilrush. A small open sweep of the estuary at the place is sometimes called Kilbaha bay.
Location and transport
Kilbaha is in the parish of Cross (Kilballyowen) in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. The parish churches are Our Lady of Lourdes in Cross and the Star of the Sea church in Kilbaha (incorrectly described on the diocesan website as the Church of St John the Baptist.) The village is near the tip of the Loop Head peninsula, far away from major roads (the N67 road being the closest, 25 kilometres east of the village). The closest town is Kilkee (1,325 population), on the N67 road at the north east of Kilbaha.
