Abbey House Apartment Hotel is one of the few and is perhaps the best situated of all being close to West Kirby Station, the Shops, the Marine lake and beach.

The name West Kirby is of Viking origin, originally Kirkjubyr, meaning 'village with a church'.

West Kirby is located on the north west corner of the coast of the Wirral Peninsula, Merseyside, England, at the mouth of the River Dee across from the Point of Ayr in North Wales. To the north east of the town is Hoylake, with the suburbs of Grange and Newton to the east, and the village of Caldy to the south east. As of the 2001 Census, the population of West Kirby was 7,680, and as part of the West Kirby & Thurstaston Ward, its population in 2001 was 12,869.

Windsurfing, sailing and kayaking are all popular local sports. In October 1991, the World Windsurfing Speed Record was set on the West Kirby Marine Lake at 42.16 knots. It was held for 2 years until it was beaten in Australia.

There is also an RNLI Lifeboat Station near West Kirby Sailing Club.

The Royal Liverpool Golf Club, a links course sited between West Kirby and Hoylake, hosted the 2006 British Open.
