This was our 1st time visiting Cronin’s and it didn’t disappoint. We were greeted at the door by a nice chatty gentleman who checked our Covid certs. We were seated upstairs which was cosy and a lovely atmosphere. Our waitress Mary was very helpful and...obliging very easy person to talk too. Our meal was beautiful really really nice and pipping hot. The salmon was outstanding. We will most definitely be back. A+More

We arrived for a long weekend in Killarney and booked a table here as we didn’t want to be left wanting food on our first night. We were greeted by a friendly gentleman at the main door who completed Covid checks and showed us to...our table in the upstairs area. A lovely lady served us drinks and took our order swiftly. We skipped starters and had beautiful homemade lasagne and very tasty Kerry lamb for mains. We were stuffed after this so unable to sample desserts. This restaurant has a lovely friendly homely feel to it.More

One of the nicest meals to be had in Killarney. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Food was excellent and would definitely warrant a return visit to Killarney just to taste that lasagne again.

We are just back from a 6 night stay in Killarney, our first stop for food was Cronins, as we had ate there when we visited Killarney with our children a number of years ago, and we have have to say yet again we were...so happy with the service and the quality of the menu. After so many years we were also delighted to see Helen , who had served us on our previous visit ,so great is the food and service that were ate there for 3 of the 6 nights. The food and service is exceptional. Can't highly recommend Cronin's enough. It's a must visit when you are Killarney , thanks to John, Helen and all the staff ,More

Found Cronins by accident searching online on a busy Saturday. We couldn’t have been more fortunate with our choice. Easy booking by phone. Arrived on time and shown to a table for two upstairs. A lovely happy family vibe. Mary looked after us so well....Food was delicious. Wine perfect and affordable. All the staff were just so warm and friendly. Toilet facilities were spotless. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Killarney. Highly recommend!More

We went to Cronin’s midweek. They were busy so we popped next door for a drink while we waited for a table. The food was absolutely excellent. Nice selection of drinks. We were bowled over by the reasonable price. Such lovely staff!

Our group of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and service at Cronin’s. Everyone loved their meals - we especially loved the fried Brie and the shepherds pie. The service was fantastic from the time we made our reservations to when we finished with our meal.

We visited Cronins after reading Trip Advisor reviews and were not dissapointed. A warm welcome awaited us . I ordered the lasagne, my favourite dish.M y partner ordered lamb shank. We were both very happy with our meals. Both tasty and well cooked. The atmosphere...was good and we were happy to receive travel advice from the lady who helped us to plan our next day drive around the ring of Kerry. Thankyou. We will be back. Jean and Dave .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
