We happened upon Cronins while strolling from hotel we were staying at (McKenny) and was just a short distance down the street. We enjoyed a light lunch of vegetable soup/brown bread which was excellent. As was the service.

Cronins is a lovely place to dine, the atmosphere is cosy and the food in fantastic! It’s on the medium scale for price, but I believe you get what you pay for, and this was a really great place for dinner! Thanks!

It was tasty enough and we enjoyed it as a whole. Service was good and a really friendly welcome set the tone. Food was mixed, some parts of the dish would be nice others wouldn’t. As mentioned in other reviews chips are not great. Surf...More

Popular and high scoring restaurant in central Killarney. Nice atmosphere and good service. My meal was perfectly OK, alas for me the food did not stand out. In fact, the chips (fries) were not close to what I'd expect of a restaurant. I left the...More

While on a tour we stopped in Killarney. We wanted to try one of the typical dishes. Not knowing where to go we came across Cronins, and we thought it would be a good idea. It certainly was. We ordered bacon with cabbage and potatoes....More

Great place to eat. Prices aren't too expensive, €13-18 main courses. The food is really nice, the tiger prawns are to die for, so tasty! The drinks are very nice and well poured. Staff are really friendly. Overall a great place for a dinner out!

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.
