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

Had food here on Saturday with my partner and child, absolutely fantastic and very safe regarding social distancing and cleanliness, the wait time for our food was kept to a minimum and the food itself was absolutely delicious, could not fault Cronins one bit and...will definitely be back on our return to Killarney, also I would highly recommend the sticky toffee pudding for dessert!More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here and it’s was beautiful! Originally, we couldn’t get a table until 8:45pm on a Saturday which we initially though was too late but after trying to find somewhere else and realising everywhere was full, we rang back and...were able to get in again for 8:45pm. A table became available before this and the restaurant called us to come in whenever we were ready - we arrived embarrassed for turning the table down initially but were met with the loveliest and friendliest staff - felt like we knew them! Food was impeccable and you could tell was homemade with pride. Even with the covid restrictions, it was still the loveliest experience. Will definitely be back if ever in Killarney again!!More

Arrived and the staff were friendly. Food was lovely now along with the pints had with the food. Had the tempura prawns and they were lovely followed by the duck which was equally as nice now. Only little fault I had was a little rushed...as we booked for half 7 and had the starters and mains and out the place within 40 mins. But food was lovely and is a nice little spotMore

The food was top class. I had the trio of fish with prawns on top. Absolutely delicious with a beautiful Sauv Blanc. My wife had the duck With a plum sauce and that was Excellent. The veg was steamed and freshly prepared. No wonder it’s...difficult to get a table there. You need to book the day before. This is the best restaurant in Killarney and the staff are courteous and professional. Thanks to you all for a fabulous evening. Ger & TrishMore

We ate here on a Tuesday evening. It was quiet so we got seated and served in good time. I got the soup and a large serving of lovely homemade bread. My wife got a chicken and bacon salad which was again a large portion....For mains I got the lasagne which was very tasty. My wife got the chargrilled chicken. Again the quality was very good and portions generous. For dessert we got a chocolate brownie and sticky toffee pudding. Very tasty. I would be more of a quantity over quality person but this place ticked both boxes. The menu wasn't as extensive as other places but was still decent. The server was pleasant too. The room we were in was quite small but had a nice traditional feel to it We would eat here again.More

Two of us had lunch and dinner in Cronin's Restaurant. Easy to find. Staff are exceptionally friendly, very hygiene-conscious, staff wearing masks. Suggested vegetarian options for me that were not on the menu, possible to have a pint with the meal, very economical, deserts are...home-made and all meals were beautifully presented. No hesitation in recommending a visit to Cronin's at any time of the day and for all ages. Staff make everyone feel welcome, are super friendly and very accommodating. Keep up the great work.More

Hi Jamie, My best advice would be to contact Cronin's themselves as they would be the best placed to answer this question especially as it is a serious issue if there was any type of cross contamination. To be fair they are... More
