Description: Hugh McCann’s is family business that has been on the go for almost 40 years, the building is around 200 years old and has been sympathetically restored to preserve old world charm, yet with all modern comforts and fabulous design taking advantage of the stunning situation.The building nestles between the mountains and the sea. The restaurant looks onto the promenade and out to sea, the bar area, beer garden and wedding function room have views of the Mourne mountains. Ample parking for coaches is available nearby. Conference facilities include breathtaking 'breakout' areas, and fabulous opportunities for team building activities such as a walk in the hills or volunteering at a local national nature reserve.

Wow! From the day we booked our wedding to the special day Hugh McCanns staff really did out do themselves!
Our wedding party was a large party and not once was is it an issue, everything we wanted we got and we couldn't have pictured our day any other way. The staff where amazing, the venue was amazing, the food was amazing and of course the prices where even better for our guests! A good drink for a decent price My partner and I would be quite particular and that never mattered as what we wanted we got even if I was particular many times, I really can't express how amazing our day was from start to finish! Of course everyone is still talking about it! Might just have to book a party for our year anniversary

Recommend Hugh McCanns to anyone who wants somewhere relaxed, fun, organised and romantic for a wedding and of course the next day get together!

Amazing two days! Thank you for everything

We had our wedding here on 10th August 2017. Can't thank everyone at McCanns enough for the best few days. I can't stress enough how great Donna, Niall, Brenda, Marc, Cormac, Ryan and the rest of the staff were. They went above and beyond not just for myself and Megan but all of our guests at the wedding. So many little touches behind the scenes and plenty of craic along with it from them. We also had a BBQ the next day in the secret garden and outside terrace, this was just as good as our wedding day with our guests loving the setting, venue and again the food was top class. Would highly recommend McCanns to anyone considering their venues. Thanks again.

Got married on Thursday 10th August here and cannot rate it high enough. Venue and food perfect and as for the staff they lierally couldn't do enough for us and gave us the perfect wedding, Marc, Ryan, Cormac, Donna and Brenda to mention a few. It was the little touches behind the scenes that made it such a special day. For anyone thinking of booking their wedding here definately do it! We had a bbq the day after the wedding aswell and there was so much food and it was all soo tasty. The setting, decor and attention to detail made it brilliant and I cant speak highly enough for this place. Our guests have also all been raving as to how good the venue was over the two days. Cant wait to come back and visit. Thank you all soo much for making our wedding so special

Amazing staff. Amazing venue. Amazing food.

I honestly can't put everything in to words to how perfect this place is. My husband and I just had our wedding with Hugh McCanns on Friday 28th July. From planning the wedding to the actual day of the wedding, everything went as smoothly and stress free as it could have went. The staff are just incredible, on the day of our wedding, it was so relaxed for our guests, nobody was rushed, everyone at the wedding kept giving me numerous compliments about the venue and staff. The customer service that was given was outstanding. The staff met each and everyone, of everybody's individual needs, which we gratefully appreciate.
On behalf of the new Mr and Mrs O'Rourke, we would just like to say a huge, huge thank you for absolutely every little thing that each staff member did, on the days leading up to our wedding and the day of our wedding. We honestly could not have booked a better place.
We will be recommending Hugh McCanns to anyone seeking a venue or even just an amazing meal. We wish that we could rate this a lot more than 5 star!

Attended a family wedding recently and found Hugh McCanns to be a lovely venue that catered for all. The food hit the spot, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the venue was spacious and well proportioned with plenty of space for all the guests.
