Popped in for breakfast. I had the Bacon hash with scrambled instead of poached eggs. My husband had the full Irish. All the food is locally sourced and the breads are all home made. I cannot describe how tasty the bacon hash is, cubes of...potatoes, thinly sliced onion and peppers mixed with the nicest white pudding ever, topped with scrambled eggs and a drizzle of hollandaise sauce... My husbands full Irish Breakfast was also lovely, cooked to perfection. Service was great by friendly attentive staff who explained all about where the food is sourcedMore

Having read a lot of reviews we were looking forward to trying Crean's. Having phoned in advance to check if the breakfast was served all day on Sunday, we were disappointed to arrive at 1and we told that they were out of sausages and bacon....Staff were quick to point out how they were "hammered unexpectedly" in the morning. We thought it was very poor to run out of essential breakfast items. We had quite a wait for the food. It was very nice but the portions were small and not value for money.More

I never write reviews, however this place is amazing. People need to know. I have been to this place with my family and friends on numerous occasions and have yet to find a fault. The food is sooooo tasty and the selection is great all...homemade even their ketchup. The chef is obviously very passionate and creative. The choices are amazing with lots to cater for all diets/allergies. The staff are very friendly and very helpful always cheery. Will definitely be making plenty of return visits for 2020!!!More

Breakfast a Creans has to be the best. I have only experienced eggs beni in one other 5 star hotel where the meal is on par with Creans The eggs are alway done to perfection, made sure I asked the chef how he get the...cooking of the eggs just right.. although the big challenge would be get the hollandaise to taste as good. Great place for a chillout breakfast, love to hear the chef laugh every now and then, lovely atmosphere with the staff... Back for Tapas night soon and looking forward to it...More

I visited recently with a friend for breakfast and ordered the pancakes and a latte. The coffee was the only thing that saved my morning, the pancakes came out half raw so had to send them back. The second ones that came out were cooked...perfectly but they lacked flavour. Thinking we came on an 'off' day (which believe me, I know it happens as I work in the industry), we decided to give it another chance. Unfortunately on the second occasion, we again left disappointed. The staff are lovely but they need a lot of training.More

The food here is so good there is no question about that but the waiting staff are all over the place. They have no idea how to make decent coffee, or how to take an order correctly. There seems to be no head person front...of house directing the gi rtls. It's a huge let down to such wonderful food. It has really turned me off goin in there as I get so frustrated with the headless chickens running aroundMore

I recently joined family and friends at Crean’s Place restaurant in Kilcullen for their very first supper club. Delicious food. I would like to thank the chef and all the staff for their attention to detail. I’m a coeliac and at Crean’s Place they went...above and beyond to cater for my needs. I was served hot slices of their very own gluten free bread on arrival, homemade vegetable soup, for my main course I was served my very own gravy bowl and an added side of my own gluten free breadcrumbs. I was just delighted. It’s very hard to get a restaurant to cater for all your needs being a coeliac but Crean’s outdone themselves. Well done! I thought this attention to detail was a really lovely touch and because of this I cannot wait for the next supper club. I almost forgot to mention the delicious baked apple dessert which had a gluten free crumble topping and served with a homemade custard - it was to die for! It was also super value for money - especially when everything was homemade! Keep up the good work you guys!More
