We had a group night out in Jack's of Cromane recently. I've been before, and loved it, but wondered whether the experience would be as good with larger numbers. It most certainly was. The food was as scrumptious as ever, and the staff really couldn't have been nicer. Owner Brian seemed to be everywhere at once, making sure everyone was... More

JP on the piano is incredible, such a talented guy. His playing really adds to the enjoyment of eating in Jack's. Staff all very chatty and friendly. Will definitely return. Have waited a long...

Try the wild salmon or the monk or the cod and the crab. You won't ever go cholesterol again. There are more fish in the sea and there's always an old hake. There's no hake like an old hake.

Jacks Coastguard Restaurant is a landmark building overlooking Rossbeigh and Inch Peninsula in the seaside village of Cromane between Kilorglin & Glenbeigh on the Ring of Kerry route. Nestled against the Atlantic Ocean, enjoy panoramic sea and mountain views in one of Kerrys Top Restaurants recently named Best Seafood Restaurant in Ireland by well respected foodie Georgina Campbell as well as listings with Bridgestone & Michelin Guides. The Station Bar and Coastguard Restaurant successfully combine old world charm with modern elegance.Guests can linger over a drink in the bustling Station Bar or enjoy the soft tones of the piano through the restaurant by our resident pianist JP Murphy. Only the finest and freshest of seafood is used to create dishes that would rival the most discerning of palate. Signature dishes such a Cromane Mussels, Tiger Prawns or perfectly seared Scallops should not be missed. For the unwilling seafood diner, our succulent Fillet of Beef should suffice nicely.
