Based on the detective novels by Ken Bruen, Jack Taylor is an Irish drama set in the character's hometown of Galway, and chronicles the experiences of Jack Taylor, former officer of the Irish "Guardai" (police force). After being fired for assault, Taylor turns private investigator. At first he is reluctant to pursue this line of work, but soon realizes that his former police experience and wealth of both personal and professional contacts made over the years has made him well suited to it.

A heavy drinker whose own traumatic upbringing and personal demons sometimes threaten to get the better of him, Taylor's gritty, no-nonsense investigative methods sometimes push the boundaries of the law. He fields cases from his "office" in the local pub with the help of Cody Farraher, his young, idealistic assistant, and former Guardai colleague Officer Kate Noonan, with whom his relationship is more complicated than it seems.

This dark, film noir-style series stars Scottish born actor Iain Glen as Jack, whose gravely voiced, voice-over narrations and weathered face lend further depth and realism to Taylor's hard-living character.
