What Our Customers Say

"Excellent service. Delicious food. We had dinner twice at this restaurant. Our waitress was warm and friendly. She made excellent recommendations. The interior was very nice. Not like a pub and the owner was at the door to greet us and to thank us when we left. If you are in Killarney go there!"

"We stopped by Cronin's Restaurant on our last night in Killarney. All of us had the Shepard's Pie and it was outstanding. Our meal was only surpassed by the service we had. Great place to eat!"

Co. Kilkenny

"My wife and I visited this superb restaurant in Killarney, Co Kerry. The service was professional yet friendly, and the food perfect. We had the Kerry Roast Leg of Lamb and the Crispy Duck and neither could be faulted at all - sizeable, perfectly cooked dishes.
Highly recommended... just make sure you book to avoid disappointment."
