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.

Great Shepard's Pie. Do I need to say more? An upscale pub/restaurant cross over. Always busy, but worth going for an early dinner or waiting for. Attentive staff, good nosh.

Everything about Killarney was a good experience for us. One of the many pleasant surprises on my trip through Ireland was this cozy restaurant. The waitress was very welcoming. I would hardly look at something in the vegetarian section of a menu but one item stuck out. I asked about the Nut Roast. Never heard of it before. The waitress described it and asked if i was feeling adventurous. I cautiously said yes. I don't know how something called a nut roast could taste that good but it had this blend of spices that almost tasted mediterranean to me. It looked similar to a thick sliced loaf, meat or bread. But somehow they mashed these nuts in there and along with the hot tomato sauce that comes with it which we poured on top, this just blew me away. So good. Recommend the dish, recommend the restaurant. Oh, and I mentioned this experience after to the host of my B&B and she said that this place is where the locals enjoy going for dining.

I really enjoyed the salmon and the shepherd's pie. My dad loved the lamb. We had a nice, relaxing dinner here and the food was memorable compared to other restaurants.
