My Husband and I stayed one night in MacNean House recently to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We enjoyed immensely the prestige eight course tasting menu, with a selection of wines chosen to complement each course. The staff were extremely professional and courteous. The next morning, our breakfast was once again mouthwatering. One certainly does not leave MacNean House hungry. Unfortunately... More

Myself and a group of 9 friends booked to stay in MacNean House in June 2015 (it speaks volumes that we had to book 10 months in advance to get a Saturday with 5 rooms free). I had heard a lot of great things about the place and so, expectations were high. We arrived on a Saturday evening, just before... More

My wife booked this for my birthday. There's no doubt it's expensive, but it is for special occasions. The whole experience is a delight and to get the most out of it it's best to stay over at Macnean's. This is quite literally the best food we have tasted in Ireland. The tasting menu is the way to go. A... More

From start to end, our experience at MacNeans was just great. The setting, the welcome, the staff and the food, superb 😄 The menu explained to us in detail, professional service and no sense at all of being rushed off our table. Gorgeous food and a wonderful experience. Very good value for money and we'll definitely be back!

If any restaurants or hotels are finding it difficult to fill their establishments you should pay a visit to MacNean House in Blacklion, Co. Cavan and watch professionalism at work. Myself and my husband have just spent a night in MacNean House and what an experience it was. Every experience from the time we arrived was exceptional and the attention... More

I recently stayed at this hotel with my wife. My brother and his wife had booked the hotel months ago but unfortunately something's else came up and we did out duty and went in their place. We spoke with some people at the hotel who had booked months in advance. We arrived at the hotel and were met by Zara... More

We went here with 3 other couples for a one night stay and dinner. It needs to be booked very far in advance but it's absolutely worth the wait. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The bar area where we had drinks before dinner is very friendly and comfortable. But what makes the experience world class is... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner, bed and breakfast stay at MacNean's recently. Food was excellent, perhaps the best we've had in Ireland. We opted for the Prestige Menu and it did not disappoint. My favourite course was the quail breast barbequed served with stuffed ballotine leg and balsamic lentils. The scallops and pork cheek with carrot came... More

We had an amazing meal at MacNean House. It was a Saturday night and we were seated in the bar with cocktails, before Nevan himself came out and greeted everyone. He is a really lovely person. The meal itself was incredible, and the restaurant is really small and intimate. The sommelier was lovely and really knowledgeable, in fact all of... More

Booked this MONTHS ago and had been counting down the days until it came around. Myself and my husband went for the Sunday lunch and stayed for the night also. The food was brilliant, fantastic flavours and great portions. Breakfast the next day was also delicious, so much so we were sorry we hadnt booked two nights instead of one!... More
