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.

Service good. Restaurant was busy and they had to cope with lots of kids. Starters very good, mains good as well, but sauce a bit bland. Still good value for money.

Had lunch recently with some friends, very underwhelmed... Stunning location and views. Our order was taken swiftly and we relaxed and enjoyed the view and surroundings. When our starters came I had the goats cheese which was nice if a little cool. 2 had the black pudding starter which unfortunately was deep fried or had been oven cooked and left... More

First visit here and no complaints. We ordered main courses only so can only comment on that. The attention to detail was great, lovely fresh bread rolls, chilled water and white tablecloths. The surrounding, being by the sea, lends itself to a very relaxing environment. Both myself and my husband ordered fish, and it was lovely. The sides of veg... More
