Here’s the excerpt from LonelyPlanet’s EBook Secret Europe – 50 Truly Unforgettable Experiences
Detour to Solitude
Location: Cromane Peninsula, Ireland
Driving around the Ring of Kerry is an unforgettable experience in itself, but you don’t need to limit yourself to the main route.
Hidden off the N70, the Cromane Peninsula is a five-minute drive from both Killorglin and Glenbeigh.
The peninsula’s tiny namesake village sits at the base of a narrow shingle spit, with open fields giving way to spectacular water vistas and multihued sunsets.
Cromane’s exceptional Jack’s Coastguard Restaurant is a local secret and justifies the trip.
Entering this 1866-built coastguard station feels like arriving at a low-key village pub.
But a narrow doorway at the back of the bar
leads to a striking, whitewashed contemporary space with lights glittering from midnight-blue ceiling panels, a pianist, and windows overlooking the water.”
