This is one of our favorite restaurants in Ireland! Our B and B host recommended it. Lots of locals eat here. Great dinner specials which included appetizers (Fried Brie was great!), entree and dessert. Everything was exceptional! We enjoyed the seafood chowder, lamb, and potatoes!

Four of us visited here for tea. We had fish and chips, shepherds pie and chicken curry . All the meals were lovely and I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

The athmosphere is quite nice, small dining room, very cosy! The food is ok, but nothing special! Sides were prety boring and without imagination. In comparison to other irish dinging spots it was also a bit more expensive for lesser quality.

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

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.
