Welcome to the Boathouse
We are proud to present Cromane's very own seaside café and tourism hub !
Welcome to the Boathouse. A beautifully situated spot to grab a quality cuppa and enjoy the sights overlooking the Wild Atlantic Way.
Cromane is a quaint fishing village found just off the Ring Of Kerry. 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. From coffee breaks to watersport rental and seafood tastings we have plenty of exciting plans for the future… so bear with us and stay in the loop via social media and our site!
Did you know ...
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 !

Toni & Trish
Hi, i'm Toni the owner of the Boathouse. I'm super stoked to have my amazing partner in crime Trish (aka mom) working with me. Together we have big dreams of expanding our business from the seaside cafe to seafoods and watersport! With my degree in Marine & Natural History Photography and previous profession as a PADI Scuba diver & seafarer, my ambitions are driven by my love for the Marine environment. My mom recently retired from her profession as a Primary Head School Teacher and has a great interest in getting kids involved in creative and educational experiences at the Boathouse.
We recently moved over to Ireland from England but have very confusing South African accents!
I feel in love and married a local Cromane man and now our adventure begins here... in paradise.
