I can honestly say my husband and I had a fantastic stay at MacNean House. Our room was beautiful, the staff in both MacNean House and the restaurant were friendly and informative, they really went out of their way to be accommodating. The food was amazing, best meal we have ever had. I 100% recommend this place. If you are considering it you won't be disappointed

We had been here before and we loved it so much that we decided to make a return visit. The way we were treated from the time we arrived until we left was very good. The food was fine dining at its best and the way it was presented was excellent. As we were staying over we had the breakfast which was very good and the presentation was as well done as the dinner. Neven Amelda and all the staff do a brilliant job. All the staff are very friendly and great to deal with. We met Neven and he greeted us like friends not like paying customers. Would be very pleased to recommend this place. Neven Amelda and the great team they have deserve every success in the future

I was fortunate enough to spend a night here in April. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. Staff were so friendly and knowledgeable. We opted for the Junior Suite and it was simply beautiful. For dinner we chose the Prestige Menu consisting of 9 courses, everything was absolutely amazing. The level of detail was exceptional. If I am lucky enough to visit again I will go for the 5 course menu though, there was just too much! Breakfast the following morning was just as delicious. We were introduced to Neven and shown around his cookery school before we checked out which really topped it all off. A fantastic place to spend a special occasion!

Room Tip: As a previous reviewer says, opt for a suite - they are really worth it!

Not really being a foodie I must say I was bowled over by my experience in McNean's. Truly wonderful experience. The rooms were very classical in style and extremely clean. Age profile midweek bit older. Perhaps weekend attracts younger crowd . Will be back.

Myself & my husband have just returned home from celebrating his birthday at MacNean House & Restaurant. This was our third visit here over the years and we really enjoyed it as we previously did. We were welcomed by Neven himself, he is a very friendly, warm & polite person as he always comes across when you would see him on tv. All the staff are very professional, polite & friendly. Our accommodation was lovely, our bed was very comfortable, the place was spotless. Now the important part, our food was AMAZING!! OMG, it was delicious, very tasty. We had the prestige menu, we savoured every moment, food just melts in your mouth. Again, breakfast is also part of the experience, absolutely gorgeous and so much choice, great to have so much locally sourced and fresh Irish produce. We are completely full, probably won't eat for a week. Thank you for another very enjoyable & memorable experience. We will be back!

It had taken us quite a while to get to McNean House but are we glad we did so! It was the most wonderful dining experience, probably the best we have ever had. The bar area is lovely and comfortable and the staff greeting is as you would expect from those who work with Neven Maguire, with his attention to detail and friendliness. Our dinner was exceptional. To say that we had, amongst other dishes, scallops, John Dory, lamb four ways, banana dessert, is such an understatement as to be laughable. The additions and flavours were truly exceptional. We had a lovely Vouvray from the Loire which was very reasonably priced. In fact all the wines are very reasonable and there is no ridiculous mark-up like you get in many restaurants. The drink prices correspond to local bar prices-€4 for a pint of lager!! Where would you get it??

The decor is really lovely, the service is superb and to cap it all the head waiter, Raymond, drove us back to our B&B in nearby Belcoo. What service!! It was our first time and we fervently pray that it will not be our last. Very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Before or after your meal drop in to The Bush Bar across the street. Very chatty young barman there...

Booked our stay last year & was not disappointed! The staff make McNean House an even more memorable experience. Our room was the McNean Suite, it was fresh & spacious. Our dining experience was the best we have ever experienced & it stretched over 3 hours of pure bliss. Once again breakfast was another delight!! Thank you for a great time-will stay with us forever! Book & enjoy!! Hope to return.

Room Tip: McNean Suite was on the top floor-spacious & comfortable!
