Jacks’ Station Bar is a traditional pub steeped in history, originally The Coastguard Station – this historic building was owned by the late Jack Sugrue, who opened its doors as a public bar on the 8th December 1961 and still to this day retains his name fondly. Since then Jacks’ has gone from strength to strength as a traditional Irish pub and award winning seafood restaurant now owned and managed by Brian and Grainne Keary since 2006.

Location, Location, Location!

Located within a stones throw Cromane Beach, our Station Bar is a hub for locals and visitors alike where a casual and friendly atmosphere awaits you!

The pints are always flowing & craic is always mighty no matter what time of the day or night you call in.

“Once you step through the cosy, friendly old style bar where the locals congregate to chat over a few pints you know that this is some place special.”

The best pint of Guinness in Kerry!

Just order yourself a pint of Guinness or a coffee and tuck into one of the dimly lit corners in the bar, absorb the atmosphere of this unchanged Irish pub and let our friendly and attentive staff take care of you.

“Best pub ever. Have been going for years! Great for sun-downers in the summer too.”

A Sunday session in Jacks’ is a must!

From mid March to September, live traditional music kicks off on Sunday evenings. Get stuck into a post GAA match analysis, a game of darts or if you’re lucky, a sing song with the locals in our traditional Irish pub to the front of the restaurant.

If you get a bit peckish, you can always enjoy a bowl of our famous seafood chowder or whatever else takes your fancy on our menu.

“Walking through the pub, we stopped to listen to the local music for a few minutes. I wish we could have stayed longer. Try to set aside some time in your schedule for a stay in the pub here. The music was some of the best of the entire trip.”
