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.

Reviewed October 17, 2013

We had an enjoyable meal at Cronin's. The man on the front door was very helpful in reserving us a table on our way past earlier in the evening, and it was ready to go when we arrived later. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, and the service was friendly all evening. A lovely night all round!

“Very good food at reasonable prices.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Had the Kerry lamb for a main meal and it was well-cooked, tasty and plentiful. Nice vegetables and a delicious Baileys cheesecake for dessert. Good service and nice atmosphere in the downstairs bar where we ate.

“Ok place to eat”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Killarney is such a busy tourist town. There are no early bird specials on Fri/Sat/Sun. Food prices are a bit high but so is the rest of Killarney. Service was ok and the place filled up fast right after 6:30. Food was pretty standard fare
