My husband, son and I had a wonderful meal at Cronin's while stating in Killarney. Everything was fresh and the portions were generous. The fish was wonderful and not overcooked. We would definitely return to this spot.

Very good food and service for the price, which is slightly more than other places in town, but worth it. Would eat there again if we go back to Killarney.

We visited during lunch on June 13, 2018 and the food was wonderful. We had just finished a long hike at the Torc Waterfalls and this was a welcome break in our day. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Cronins Restaurant is in the heart of Killarney. The service is friendly and attentive. I had a wonderful crispy duck dinner. It is a very popular place, so it is advisable to make a reservation for dinner.

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.
