Located just off the Ring of Kerry, along the Wild Atlantic Way is our quaint and beautiful Boathouse. With ambitious dreams and determination, we hope to showcase the best of what Cromane has to offer, both for visiting tourists and our fellow community. 

Our Boathouse is now open and newly decorated with comfortable seating, panoramic views and a small display of local crafts. Our coastal cafe trailer is open and at your service and you can order from both inside and out. With indoor and outdoor seating available and a beach to explore, there's plenty to enjoy. Our team are always looking for new and exciting ways of engaging our customers which is why we have collaborated with local businesses to bring you unique and memorable experiences. From Guided Walks to local Craft Workshops and so much more.

Welcome to the Boathouse. It's so much more than a building or a business. It's where people come together to make memories with their loved ones and appreciate the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Ocean.

Toni and her husband Fionán are the founders of the Boathouse. After they met in Singapore whilst working on Superyachts, they soon retired to Fionán's home in Cromane where they settled into "land life" and now have a son Noah. Whilst Fionan works as a Chief Marine Engineer, Toni opened the Boathouse and runs it alongside her crew. 

This year we are truly excited to share loads of new improvements and additions. I am driven to build a business that is always working to improve the customer experience. Coming from a background of 7* hospitality, I understand that quality is key. My husband and I care deeply about the Marine environment. Our professions and hobbies revolved around the sea. I am a certified PADI Scuba Instructor, Seafarer and Marine Photographer and my husband a Marine Engineer, Seafarer  and avid fisherman and surfer. With this is mind, we take sustainable eco-tourism very seriously.

Hey, i'm Viki. I originally come from Hungary and I have lived in Cromane for the past three years. I love working for the community with our amazing Boathouse Babes. I enjoy running along the beach and passing my lovely workplace every time. I look forward to seeing you all at the Boathouse and you can be sure I will welcome you with a big smile and amazing treats.

The Boathouse Babes

The Boathouse was built in 1866 as a Coastguard Boathouse. Legend tells us of a group of locals who snuck into the Boathouse and sunk the boat TWICE ... and it was then used as a boat shed ... until now !
