I'm just back to base after a few days in MacNean House and restaurant in Blacklion, Co Cavan. This was a truly fabulous experience. It started with a genuinely warm welcome on arrival - to a totally dedicated team who give a level of customer service which I would suggest is impossible to surpass! The accommodation is lovely and cosy...

I've only waited years to get to nevin's! And while everything about the place is beautiful and fantastic I was disappointed to learn that the only menu now is the 'tasting' menu. It's a very Michelin star production line and doesn't reflect for me what nevin would often refer to on his tv programmes as ' when we serve this...

Just back from my 6th trip over the years to MacNean house and it was good but not as good as it used to be. This was my 6th trip and the last 3 there was no Neven. I understand he can't be there all the time but it was disappointing for it to happen again. There was also a...

Stayed over in MacNean house on 2nd March 2017, having stayed before I knew it would be good but you always worry the second time might not be as good as the first. Well there was no need to worry, from the moment we arrived every detail was excellent. The dinner was out of this world, every course perfectly judged...

Visited in September 2016. It had been a number of years since I had visited, in fact this was my first time in the refurbished restaurant. We had a 9.30 sitting and we're staying 5 mins away in Belcoo. We enjoyed a pre dinner drink in the bar and a look at the menus. Staff were very friendly and showed...

Service very good and friendly , long menu but interesting , great breakfast in the morning. Wonderful place to visit for a meal and wouldn't help your waistline but the odd visit would...

My wife and I have been dying to try Nevan's restaurant forever. Finally got to go last night and stay in the house too. All I can say is WOW ! The restaurant is fabulous. Best food I think I've ever eaten. A total culinary experience from start to finish. Could not fault anything. The house itself is gorgeous. A...

From entering MacNean House, we felt special. The staff were welcoming and informative. It was lovely to be transported back to friendly chatty staff. We were shown our room. Luxury was old-style and I loved the key on a key-ring for our door. It feels so much more personal than a key card. Complimentary fruit (apple, blueberries, grapes & raspberries)...

We were so lucky, we managed to get a cancellation on a Saturday night after a hopeful phone call. We had heard so much about from lots of people over the past year and it certainly lived up to all expectations from the moment we stepped through the door, the food ( eight courses !) was simply the best eating...
