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.

My wife and I visited this restaurant as we strolled around the town looking for dinner. Hit jackpot as the food was wonderful. My wife ordered the pork chop and it was lovely. I ordered a shepherd pie and it was tasty and not over salty. Overall a great place and great foods for average price.

Attentive friendly staff. Tasty homely food. Crab claws let it down at 9eur for 6. Otherwise recommend after a long day on the road

“Value and choice”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

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”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

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
