Had dinner in Jacks Coastguard Restaurant on Monday 22nd August. This busy restaurant caters for all tastes. We both had fish because of the location, and were absolutely blown away with the quality, service, and attention to detail we received. The presentation was second to None and it's hard to overstate this Jewell in Cromane, Kerry. It's not surprising that... More

The pub at the front reminds me of visiting my family in Cromane as a child, the gorgeous restaurant at the back has a lovely fresh atmosphere. The giant windows looking out to the sea provide a beautiful backdrop to delicious food and fun piano music. My family were well looked after by Jack's when we visited in June.

My boyfriend treated me to a meal at Jacks to start off my visit to Ireland and I was so impressed I've already planned another visit before I go home! The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was delicious (although jacks is known for it's high quality seafood the steak also deserves a mention as it was perfectly cooked!)... More

What appears to be a small pub on entry opens out to a super restaurant behind. The food is delicious especially the seafood. Well worth a visit.

Being a fish lover I am always on the look out for freshly well cooked fish dishes and Jack's doesn't disappoint. I was spoilt for choice and so pleased that other members of our party made different choices so I could steal a little. None disappointed!! Other diners in our party stuck with the meaty options and by the look... More

We've been looking forward to dining here for a while and it didn't disappoint. The service was fantastic, staff were so attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. We ordered steak and salmon, and both dishes were beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and delicious! Creme brûlée for dessert was also incredible. The whole evening was really relaxed and...

Celebrate a birthday in Jacks recently and what a night was had! The service was efficient and very friendly but not intrusive, the food was mouth watering and just right portions sizes. JP played a lovely rendition of happy birthday for me and we spent the evening listening to JP on the piano while watching the sunset! Must visit by... More

Description
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.
