Have heard great things about Jack's during recent visits to Kerry and decided to try it out on our last holiday. And for sure the food and service did not disappoint. The crab claws were finger licking, and there were no complaints for the chowder or scallops. For mains we had the black sole, Cromane salmon and steak (don't ask!)... More

We visited Jack's this week to celebrate my birthday. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome by the friendly staff. We got a window table with a breath taking view of the sea. The food was absolutely superb. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. The resident pianist was not on duty but not to worry as Brian the... More

My husband and I walked into the bar where the finals of the Euro soccer was was on the television - I noticed somebody eating at one of the bar tables in the middle of he crowd.... More

Recently had a get together meal to celebrate a 60th Birthday. Wonderful setting and meal and service was excellent and good value. John P on the Piano made the night even more special - what a talent! It is a wonderful, friendly place well worth a visit

We recently had our daughter's christening meal at Jacks. We have been there on a number of occasions, and this restaurant never fails to deliver. We requested a few additions to the Sunday lunch menu, and nothing was an issue. The food was perfect - everything was served fresh and hot. The service provided by Brian and his team was... More

We brought a large party of English and Irish people to Jack's for my birthday last Saturday and quite simply the whole experience was superb. The attention to detail, service and food was all exemplary to the extent that this group were able to order on the night with a choice of 5 starters and main courses. Drinks were quickly... More

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. 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.
