We booked accommodation and food here 8 months in advance as we had tried to book here a few years before but couldn't make it happen at a date to suit us then! So be sure to book well in advance! As expected the food was really superb and we enjoyed every part of it. We both felt that while the service was excellent, the servers were a little too brisk giving us a description of the dishes, a minor issue! We stayed here also and the accommodation was really nice, though while we felt the restaurant was well priced, the b&b cost was very steep, comparable with 5 star hotel prices. However we both agreed that the overall experience of dinner, bed and breakfast at the McNean House is a special thing and not to be missed!

WOW! The food here was amazing. My wife bought this for me for my birthday and it was a real treat. Every bite of food was full of flavour and freshness. No matter how big or small the dish was they all packed very subtle while extremely tasty bites. I could not fault the service from any member of staff from front of house to bar person and waitress they were all exceptional. This place is a real credit to Belcoo. Neven even took the time to attend peoples tables and talk to them for a bit and he is a really pleasant and humble guy to chat with. Well Done!

We walked in to MacNean House one damp Tuesday evening in February not really sure what to expect and were blown away by the welcoming ambience. The place was packed, 60 + covers on a Tuesday evening, incredible! The tasting menu was sublime, staff attentive and professional with Neven himself meeting and greeting his customers. We are real foodies and fortunate to have eaten in some incredible places over the years, this is most definitely up there as one of the best. The man is a genius with a terrific team behind him.

We had the most wonderful experience here when we gathered for a special anniversary. It's was a perfect location as our group were travelling from Fublin, Donegal, Sligo and Galway. From the moment we arrived we were all treated so well-you feel truly spoiled by the warmth and helpfulness of the staff.The food here is well renowned and we can atest to this. This was an all round fantastic experience...can't wait to go back, Sandra

This restaurant is ahead of its game and customer satisfaction is its aim. Nothing could be faulted, ambiance, staff and food, especially the food, out of this world. You go to some restaurants and say to yourself, yea that was nice but come out of MacNean’s and say to yourself “what just happened, that was a WOW meal that leaves a lasting memory. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the staff are so polite and knowledgeable. I could go on but you should try the experience for yourself.

It is so rare these days to visit a restarant where the welcome, service and food are simply exceptional. We had a fantastic evening which was made so special by the care we received from Neven; Charlie, Christopher and the front of house team. This is first time I have ever seen my wife so relaxed when she was being served lactose and egg free options. On many previous occasions in other high class restaurants, she has suffered badly when the food was not truly as it was stated. The team dealt with her needs superbly without any fuss. The food was simply delicious and we left feeling truly blessed by the whole experience. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have booked to come back to Ireland from England in early 2024 and this time to stay in the lovely rooms. Keep up the good work. I hope you receive greater awards in due course. (Michelin take note!). As a footnote, our car would not start when we left the restarant and the person closing up the garage provided us with a jump start (in the pouring rain) gave us his leads and would not take any money. If anybody in the restarant knows who he is please tell him that his act of kindness was amazing.

The food was fantastic and varied. The staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. Attention to detail was evident everywhere, from the unobtrusive but gentle music choice to the china tea cups for tea! This is a detail often missed by many restaurants but an important one. Nevin himself also took the time to meet all the guests and was a gentleman. Definitely be back.

I booked our reservation at MacNean House eight months in advance and I looked forward to it with great anticipation. All of my expectations were exceeded and i had the culinary experience of my life! The staff were lovely at every encounter from booking to payment. Service was exceptional and seamless—staff were friendly, warm and without an iota of pretension. We started with a cocktail in the lounge and then were brought into the beautiful dining area that was both elegant and comfortable. There were three in our party and we were seated at a plush semi-circular booth in the center of the room—I think it was the best table in the house! We were treated to their nine course tasting menu with choices for starter, main and dessert. We opted to not get the wine pairing and were delighted with the wine selected. The well-paced service left us wanting for nothing. The food was absolutely divine and was beautifully and artfully presented. We could not have felt more pampered and our palates were tantalized with every bite! After dinner, we had the surprise opportunity to have a glimpse of the gardens. I just cannot express how amazing the whole experience was and days later we are still on a high from it! If you have the opportunity to go, take it—absolutely worth the wait! We felt like VIPs at every turn and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had!

We went here for a birthday celebration dinner and what a treat it was. By far the BEST meal we've ever eaten. We had the Prestige taster menu and it was sensational from start to finish. We were so lucky that Nevin was there himself and he went around to every table at the restaurant and spoke with everyone there. An absolute gentleman. The staff were amazing, so polite and knowledgeable about everything they were serving. You could tell they all enjoyed what they did. I had booked this month's in advance, which you do need to do, but don't let that put you off. My goodness it's worth it. Kerina and Niall from Kerry

My wife and I spent a wonderful 24 hours in this wonderful establishment. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we were in the hands of a wonderful team led by a maestro. We had the tasting menu with paired wines and it was a delight. Wonderful Irish food paired with beautiful wines served by friendly professional staff was a real treat. Every member of staff is a credit to the business and provide a memorable experience for customers in a friendly and professional manner. We also loved the outdoor space which was recently introduced as a Covid measure. It is delightful. The bedrooms were excellent and were exceptionally well maintained. 10 out of 10 for the whole experience!!

Wonderful. We tried to book 9 months ago for our wedding anniversary. Only to be told they were booked for the next 2 years (on a Friday)! We were asked if we wanted to go on the cancellation list, and we were glad we did. Last week, we were informed there was an opening. We drove from Dublin to Blacklion. The village is a bit remote, which is why we booked a night in the house as well. We got the best room at the top of the house ( a lot of steps!). The room was big, the bed comfortable, and the bathroom luxurious. We are also given a complimentary half bottle of champagne and some chocolates. Before dinner we had a cocktail in the beautifully appointed lounge. Dinner started at 18.30, and consisted of 7 delicious and perfectly presented courses. We took the wine paring, and apart from one wine which I did not like, all others went very well with the food course. We finished off the evening with a digestif in the lounge. But we were not done yet, as they next morning we were presented with a great 2 course breakfast. The porridge was wonderful, as was the eggs benedict and French toast. All staff - in the hotel, lounge, and restaurant were very professional and welcoming. This is absolutely a fabulous treat. Obviously an expensive one, but we thought it was worth it.

An excellent dining experience. We went for the tasting menu and not one in our party of six was disappointed. Every little touch was magnificent. From the excellent staff to the presentation of the food was 100%. The rooms were spotlessly clean and Covid guidelines were strictly followed. A special mention to the staff having to work in such difficult circumstances but every one was enjoying their job👋

I can’t recommend this place enough. Already planning my next visit! Every course was exceptional. Nevan greats each and every table and not just a fleeting visit, he is really engaging and will talk you through your meal. I can’t wait to go back. The staff in Mac Nean House are a credit to it and need a special mention

Visited this hotel and restaurant recently, what a fab stay, hotel is spotless and fabulous decorated. Bed was so comfortable and the room was so nicely laid out. Definitely 5stars from me. We were greeted by Imelda who spotted us passing the door and came out and directed us, she told us everything we needed to know and brought us to our room, this was a nice touch. Well done. We booked for 6.30 and the meal was fabulous, again served by Imelda who did a brilliant job along with Georgia who was fab and the 2 lads Gary and Christopher who were very polite and funny. The service was excellent. On check out we met with Blairthin who was so kind and polite. Top marks Mcnean house.

The food and service was absolutely delicious. I had the vegetarian menu and it was wonderful. You can pick and choose from both menus if you like. A lovely relaxing atmosphere and we throughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you to the staff for being so attentive.
