Stopped in after our tour of the Jameson Distillery (right around the corner). Well worth it! The food was terrific, fresh fish and many other options. Staff was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. A good find in Midleton!

The only down fall is the tables! It can be very very cramp! There is a... More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner, birthdays etc. It is constantly good, when I say consistently, I mean it, I have been coming to Finin's for over 20 years! Never a complaint yet!

We had an hour and a half to pass in Midleton so we ate here. Once you come through the front door it's like taking a step back in time. Saying that steak was very good and my friend had the seafood chowder and raved about it. The desserts were lovely as well. Nice staff and good grub.

Well priced. Very much a pub feel than a restaurant. Fabulous French onion soup. We had a steak main course and we had to try the 'corned beef'. My only experience of corned beef is from a tin so I was impressed with this version. The food was good, not haut cuisine by any stretch of the imagination, and best... More

Finin's Restaurant has been around for many many years. Food is consistently excellent and i love returning there. Took my son and niece for lunch recently and as usual the food was wonderful. I was disappointed in the attitude of staff this time, not friendly. Also i felt the bar/restaurant area needs upgrading as it was a big muggy. 5... More

We visit Finins every time we come to Midleton. So if we visit family for three days in Aghada we have at least two lunches in Finins. Reason being- atmosphere is always good and the Seafood Chowder is the best on the planet! It's a must try!

Finin O'Sullivan's thriving bar and restaurant in the centre of Midleton town has long been a popular place for locals to meet for a drink and to eat some good wholesome food. The entrance is bright and cheery, painted in pillarbox red and white, and the theme is continued inside, where black topped tables are simply set up with the basics needed for a meal. This attractive, no-nonsense place offers a wide range of popular home-made dishes, mostly based on local produce notably fresh seafood from Ballycotton and harbour steaks, also old favourites like a well-made Irish Stew; evening menus are more extensive and include some more specialities including roast duckling. Good short wine list.
