All and all a very fine place. O, and breakfast now that is another treat... More

Everything about our stay was faultless. The staff were friendly efficient and helpful. Dinner was a great experience for any food lover and breakfast the following morning was wonderful. We got to see the cookery school in action with Nevin at the helm. He was very welcoming to wards everyone Fresh milk was provided along with full tea/coffee facilities plus... More

My friend booked this restaurant a long time ago as there is a waiting list. We arrived , 3 couples and all I can say it was fabulous from start to finish. The service was impeccable without being too OTT. Perfect balance. The food was amazing and probably the best dining experience ever. The icing on the cake (pardon the... More

Dinner was without doubt the best I have ever had in Ireland - and the breakfast was delicious ( try the porridge - with honey cream and irish mist). We had... More

I am a big fan of Neven Maguire and had been hoping to try his restaurant for a long time. I was delighted to receive a voucher last year. However, when I phoned to book last June I was told that they were fully booked at weekends for the rest of 2014. I could understand that the restaurant had limited... More

The food here is indeed awesome. It is fine dining on a grand scale. Have wanted to visit for many years and we were not disappointed. We went for the taster menu with wines and were very impressed with the combination of dishes. The ingredients were fresh and honest and the wines perfectly matched to the food. The staff were...

MacNean House is excellent. The evening meal was simply superb, we elected to have the Prestige Menu which proved to be a great choice - an opportunity to try so many of Neven's dishes. The bedroom was to the highest standards, and the biscuits a lovely addition. Breakfast was as good as you could wish for. Overall a fantastic experience... More

I consider myself as an experienced cook,... More
