Description: History of Cronin’s RestaurantIn 1957 Johnny and Noreen Cronin opened a small lodging house down Clover Lane. Noreen who worked as a cook for a brief period in London decided to use her talents in the kitchen serving lunches for local factory worker. At the time it was quite a small operation with Noreen and Johnny doing the cooking the serving and the wash up . As time went by the Cronin family Grew and Sisters Joan, Katherine, Helen, Norma along with their brother Pat all began to work in the lodging house. In 1977 after realising the popularity of there lunches Johnny and Noreen took the decision to buy a small thatched cottage on College street and turn it into Cronins Restaurant. In 1996 Johnny and Noreen’s son Pat took over the business full time to ensure the family tradition continued. Today much has changed has changed in the Cronins but much of the ideals which Johnny and Norreen had when they first opened in 1957 remain the same , good quality food in a friendly family atmosphere, and with their children and grandchildren still working in the restaurant these ideals shall remain the same.

After an afternoon of walking around town, we stopped in for a quick bite. The wait staff was friendly and recommended the seafood chowder. It was wonderful and very filling. The cream broth was light and the seafood was plenty. This has been the best chowder I've had during my stay in Ireland. Worth stopping in for the chowder.

My two brothers and I made a point of eating at Cronin's twice during our short stay in Killarney. All meals were delicious, beautifully presented and wait staff very friendly and courteous. We had the duck, chicken curry, fish and chips (wonderful light batter) and pork chops. We loved all of our choices and paired them with great Guinness or... More

Lovely restaurant in Killarney. The Seafood Chowder was the best I have ever eaten! A restaurant with a family feel and delicious, home cooked food. Highly recommended!

Ate as a vegetarian. The mushroom starter was outstanding. The lasagne tasteful. The salads and sautéed mushrooms on the side were full of flavour. Fresh local produce at work. The fat fries that came with everything looked yum. And they have great desserts. Very satisfying meal with warm, smiling service. I would go back.

Excellent food and good service. Very busy which is always a good sign as well. Not terribly cheap but great food. Would recommend and would return.

We were strolling and looking for a place to have dinner in Killarney. Cronin's was recommended by a young man we met. We started with some nice wine and took our time looking at the menu. There were lots of choices but we both ordered fish and chips. These were the big, crunchy, fried kind of fish and chips made... More

If you are looking for delicious, home cooked meals this is the place to go. The food was so good we went several times and were never disappointed. The staff is friendly and accommodating. SUPERB!

We left it a little late to book a table for dinner on a Saturday night in Killarney. Got a table at Cronins and didn't hold out much expectation. Well, what a surprise. Lovely cosy atmosphere and the food was absolutely excellent. Reasonably priced too. Highly recommended.
