There's something particularly comforting about Finin's restaurant...the food is old school but really heart warming (think Irish stew or lamb shank, turkey and ham all year round), and always well cooked. The wine list is good, the staff are fab, overall a lovely experience. Not the cheapest in town, but reliable. My fav is the beef curry, melt in the... More

I've found their lunches and dinners to be good quality (a step above the usual pub food) but at reasonable prices.

After a tour of Jamison Distillery, starving and walking in pouring rain, we happened onto this gem! We were very surprised with the quality of the food and would recommend this place to everyone! The staff was very nice too! Loved talking to the friendly locals and getting lots of information.

My husband and I had a meal in Finin's last night. We hadn't booked and arrived at approx 8.30pm - we got the last table! Thank god we did. From start to finish our meals were fabulous. The waitress was very friendly and nothing was a problem. I couldn't recommend this restaurant enough.

Listening to people tell me about this restaurant for years I can't understand why I only visited here recently. All indications were that I would be in for a treat. Booked a table for around 830 an a Saturday night expecting the place to be buzzing but unexpectedly the downstairs bar/restaurant was quite with only a few customer's. We were... More

Each of us got either the vegetable soup or seafood chowder to start and then each got an entree. Only two of us got a glass of wine (Cabernet, it was... More

We started with the soup and Irish coffees and ended up just getting more soup, it's that good!!! Service was ok, our server's shift came to an end during our meal and no one came to check on us so I went up to the bar to ask for more soup and our bill.

I was passing through Midleton on a Tuesday evening and stopped in for dinner, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were so friendly, with more than enough people on duty to keep everyone happy. The food was excellent - roast lamb followed by home-made apple pie - and there was a lovely atmosphere, with a mix of people just... More
