As in my previous review, I am a long time worshipper of Neven Maguires culinary skills. Time and time again MacNeans delivers a most wonderful dining experience, from crossing the threshold to departing, with a helpful hand with your jacket, MacNeans restaurant gets it right every time in every way. The restaurant itself is beautifully presented, seating, table linens and... More

Great Sunday lunch prepared by one of Irelands top chef and served by very friendly and competent staff. Dining room well set out and very comfortable. For €35 it was very good value with a great and imaginative menu. Only downside is it is very difficult to book.

Went here on Saturday night 8th November. Booked in march for November! Was the first Saturday night 6pm booking I could get. Furnishings and decor of the restaurant are lovely. Staff very helpful and professional. I thought prior to going that €72 per person for the dinner menu was expensive but you get so much food and is worth it.... More

Had dinner and an overnight stay which was absolutely fabulous and we count ourselves extremely fortunate to have discovered such a gem! If you appreciate great food then this is the place to go. Stayed in the MacNean Suite on the top floor which was a real treat.

Yet again MacNean House surpassed all our expectations in every way possible! Everything just seems to gel together perfectly here - from the staff and the service to the atmosphere and the food - there was absolutely no aspect of our visit that I could criticise in any way. If you really want to treat yourself, then forego a few... More
