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, Gary, will look after you. The Bella Vista B&B is within walking distance across the bridge in Belcoo, overlook a lake. It is run by Fran who will treat you like Royalty. It is beautifully positioned overlooking lough McNean

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!

My wife and I have just returned from a one night stay at MacNean House. We received a very nice welcome and there was a lot of attention to detail in the room and bathroom including locally sourced toiletries. The food was superb from start to finish and the hospitality from the staff was excellent - not too intrusive but very attentive.

We stayed in a super deluxe room which was lovely. The only problem was that there was a young child in the room below us who decided to run around the room shouting the next morning at 8am for approximately an hour. After having the late sitting meal the night before which concluded at 1am, it was rather unfortunate to have our leisurely morning disrupted. Maybe Nevin might consider making his establishment adults only. This was only a minor blip on a rather wonderful evening.
