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 Kedrry route. Nestled against the Atlantic Ocean, enjoy panoramic sea and mountain views while you enjoy the finest of seafood. The Station Bar and Coastguard Restaurant successfully combines 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.

Seafood was excellent and the location amazing. A little pricey, but if you are anywhere in the area and looking for good food this is the place to go. Bar in front was filled with locals enjoying themselves - a good place to stop and have a drink, but the dining room has a beautiful sunset view and has an... More

I planned to eat here on a trip to Kerry for the simple reason that my boyfriend loves seafood and they raving reviews here. Unfortunately, we were disappointed after making the drive from our base in Killarney. Maybe it was because we visited on a Wednesday and they are closed the previous day, but the staff were setting up the... More

Visited here for Sunday lunch on a cold December day.. Had been recommended but it a bit of a distance from ours but was just superb. From the views to the decor, staff and not to mention the meal it was Grade A plus! Great value and we plan to have our next family gathering there early in 2015! Well... More

We visited this restaurant for our wedding anniversary and upon booking asked for a window table which looks out to the coast. Even thought it was dark we were able to see the lights of Inch in the distance so it was somewhat romantic! The restaurant is nicely laid out and the tables are well spaced enough so that one...
