We have eaten and stayed a few times at MacNean House and have never yet been anything other than impressed. The food was mouthwatering, with breakfast being as much of a treat as dinner. So if you haven't yet stayed over and experienced the breakfast then do so, you will not be disappointed

We visited MacNean House for dinner and an overnight stay and I have nothing but praise for the whole experience. The food was sublime but then again we expected no less. However as well as the food, what makes MacNean House so special is the staff, who are brilliant. We had a great chat with the barman who was so... More

We have tried to book this a number of times for different occasions and eventually we made our way to Blacklion last week. From the moment we walked in the door the experience started. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming - and not in an overly sweet way. We were seated and a drinks order taken before a lovely Waitress... More

Had a family meal for four.By far the best meal we have ever had in a restaurant. Would describe it as an EXPERIENCE rather than a meal. I had been there before and wanted to bring family back to show what can be achieved by an outstanding restaurant. We all agreed food was top class. Staff were something else. Everything... More

It's fair to say that MacNean Restaurant has become something of a legend, driven by the capabilities of the clearly talented highly energetic young Chef, Neven Maguire, and for more years than we care to remember, we've been trying to get a dinner booking here, matched with an overnight accommodation booking. Finally, with considerable effort, my "Better Half" M, managed... More

I am running out of superlatives to describe the wonderful food and flavours McNean and Nevin Maguire bring to the diner. Supported by a wonderful team in the kitchen, knowledgable friendly dining room staff, genial barman Raymond and accommodation staff make this the must have special treat and event in Ireland. Every time I head north I wonder can it... More

Had dinner there a couple of weeks ago. The only time available was for the 9.30 sitting, I prefer to eat earlier. Went down to the dining room at 9.25 and was ushered into bar, did not get to sit at dining table until after ten. As a result was still being served up until almost one in the morning,... More

We've been to MacNean House a few times. Each time, it meets and exceeds our expectations. We had the pre-set dinner menu and Sunday lunches there. The dishes were all exquisit as well as their service. Local fresh ingredients and the magic touches of the chefs behind the scene creates the 'WOW' factor in even the simpliest home cooking dishes!... More
