The History of Cronin's Pub
The building itself is unique and has its origins as the town hotel. It was built in 1892 and opened by William Kennefick and opened the following year as "Kenneficks Hotel". The original glass panel door, bearing the Kennefick name, is still there as you enter the left front door.
The business remained in the Kennefick family until 1970, when Denis Cronin and his wife Jo bought it. It was Jo who started the collection of artefacts and memorabilia.
