The first church at Kilkishen was probably built very early in the 19th century. It is mentioned in an 1811 report of a dispute that led to violence over who should sit nearest to the altar. Major renovation or reconstruction of the church of St Senan's was completed in 1865.
The village contains the ruins of Kilkishen Church (Church of Ireland), which was built in 1811 and repaired in 1834, but later abandoned. The outer structure is all that remains today.[needs update]
Kilkishen GAA was a hurling team that is now defunct. The team won the Clare Senior Hurling Championship in 1923 and 1932 and were finalists in 1938. The village has a junior level camogie club.
