My mum did me the honour of being her guest with a voucher she received Christmas 2015, we really wanted to enjoy her March 2016 birthday here but bookings were insanely unavailable until week into 16 so we booked for her 17 bday! The food was gorgeous, so interesting & different, while also being beautifully presented. The staff were local...

Let's be honest - me and my wife went for the Food experience and not the Hotel...and were not let down. 7 course Dinner for €85 is excellent value for amazing cuisine. And the breakfast was excellent too. I do think though that the room we were in - albeit the Standard room - was more like an average B&B...

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...
