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.

The quality of food was excellent, but you wouldn't think it with the appearance of the place. Lots of locals always a good sign and Mary the waitress was very friendly, top class chef named john, only criticism would be that the decor does not do the food justice. Don't let it put you off though as the food was great .

Excellent food and not expensive. Lovely staff. Also seating area upstairs, we noticed people looking in and leaving when they thought it was full, make sure you come in and ask, you will be directed upstairs to an equally as nice area. Curry was really tasty. Shame we visited on our last night in Killarney, would have loved to have gone for dinner/lunch again

I went to Killarney on a weekday and our train arrived at around 9pm. Cronins was pretty much one of the 2 restaurants still open when we went out to get some food, and what a great surprise!
The portions were really big, the food was absolutely delicious. The owners/staff were super friendly and were ridiculously busy, taking really good care of everyone. Definitely recommended!

Went here two nights running whilst in Killarney as we enjoyed the first night so much. Food and drink were very reasonably priced especially compared to others in the area and was excellent quality. We both had starters and main one night and different mains and dessert the second and couldn't fault any of it. Service was also exceptional. If you visit, note there is also upstairs dining which is generally quieter (not that downstairs is noisy) as fewer people realise its there.
