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.

Food was mostly good. Nothing special but reasonably priced. Not the greatest atmosphere in the world.

Very small place with nice staff and decent food. They are willing to make changes (ie grilled instead of fried). My service was quick and friendly.

Good Irish food at very reasonable prices with large portions. The seafood chowder is tasty & daily specials are delicious . Small place where locals dine.

I live in Killarney & have started to eat here once a week usually for my dinner between 1-2pm, the food is top quality & very cheap for what you get, they are coeliac friendly & the staff are very helpful & friendly even to the point where they noticed that I didn't usually finish my dinner as portions are huge so they insisted that I order half portion for €7.50 now that's good value & great service.

My girlfriend and I ate here recently, the menu selection was poor, we shared Garlic Bread to start which was nice, if small, however we then had to wait nearly forty five minutes for our main courses to arrive. We had ordered a chicken curry and lasagne, the chicken curry was bland the lasagne was good. They had no draught beers (weird for a bar/restaurant). the service was very slow and too, the waitress was not very nice and offered no explanation to the delay in the food, so was it worth the wait? Not really!
