Five years ago I was the winner of a prize from Dunnes Stores of a meal to be cooked and served in my house by Neven Maguire personally with his team. It was a night to remember being held on my 45th birthday and I used it as a fund raiser for a charity ARC House whose services I had utilised while being treated for breast cancer. Myself and my twelve guests had a wonderful night.
It was my 50th birthday in March and to mark it I wanted to go to McNean House and restaurant as part of my celebrations. We booked last September and as we wanted to stay over the nearest date to my birthday was Friday April 13th thankfully neither myself or my three friends are superstitious.
We were greeted warmly at reception, assigned a lovely spacious room beautiful decor and we eat the delicious homemade cookies. The welcome card in the room a lovely touch.
We booked the 9.30pm dinner setting and chose from the dinner menu while sitting in the cozy lounge area and what a choice. Nevin himself greeted us and the other diners in the lounge and explained the menu to us.
The restaurant is lovely and the food superb and there is suprises served in between the courses. The service is excellent with the staff explaining the selections served. We finished our dining experience at 12.45am and adjourned to the lounge.
I was delighted we had decided to book the overnight accomadation as the next morning we had another culinary delight breakfast. Another great selection to choose from and you must definitely try the porridge, every guest having breakfast was trying same I will not ruin the suprise. The service excellent again.
It may have taken me five years to visit McNean House and Restaurant but it will not take another five for me to make a return visit.
