I can only say how amazing the Prestige Menu was on our visit and we opted for the wine accompaniment to savour the experience which did not disappoint. I can also confirm that rumours of the breakfast outdoing the previous evening are unfounded. Top class food and welcoming staff.

My girlfriend and I visited here recently as part of a getaway break in Cavan. We were lucky to get a table as the waiting list very long (so be sure to book well in advance!). The staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. The restaurant beautifully decorated and the food was exquisite. The appetisers which included candied nuts, curried popcorn... More

Had been looking forward to our visit for months and we were not disappointed. We were given a warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. Our townhouse was perfect for our group. The food was superb and afterwards Neven came into the bar and was the perfect host. It was an amazing experience. Can't wait to return

Neven never fails to impress but sometimes everything just seems to come together to provide a truly memorable experience. There seem to have been a few little adjustments since our last visit and although minor they have made things even better. The main course seems a little smaller and there is now one side dish of potatoes - this is... More

we had Sunday lunch here last weekend at 12.30. When we arrived we were brought straight to our table. Other people were sitting in the casual bar area with menus. We arrived at 12.25 and at 12.55 we still hadn't ordered, meanwhile all the people from the bar had arrived to their tables and had their order taken. We felt... More

Would highly recommend McNean house for a really special experience. We came and stayed for a special occasion in a deluxe room and had the dinner menu at the 6pm sitting. The food was beautiful, room lovely and after dinner we moved to the relaxing bar area to enjoy some music and then Nevin came round to speak to guests... More

We decided to return for a second visit. Yes, the booking process really makes you feel like you have earned your reservation, but only because this place is so popular. Food was great. We met Neven this time and him and the team couldn't have been more accommodating of the slightly restricted dietary requirements of my pregnant wife. We stayed... More
