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.

“Dining Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

When in Killarney and you are looking for a meal that will fill the void we call our tummy, then go to Cronins on College street.Be guaranteed you will not be disappointed, with both the choice of menu and quality of food, not to mention service. On my last visit we had a party of 10, 6 Canadians, 4 Irish and every one were impressed with their chosen dishes, Lamb, Fish, Stew etc all at affordable prices, oh tell them Paddy the Hat sent you.

“Traditional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We did have to wait for a table but this well worth the wait. Food and services was excellent. Staff very helpful with wine selection and recommendations from the menu. This is a very traditional style of restaurant simply food well cooked and presented. You will not leave hungry

“Home made food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is not a fancy restaurant but the food is very good. The service was excellent and if you like home cooked food this is the place to go.
