From entering MacNean House, we felt special. The staff were welcoming and informative. It was lovely to be transported back to friendly chatty staff. We were shown our room. Luxury was old-style and I loved the key on a key-ring for our door. It feels so much more personal than a key card. Complimentary fruit (apple, blueberries, grapes & raspberries)...

We were so lucky, we managed to get a cancellation on a Saturday night after a hopeful phone call. We had heard so much about from lots of people over the past year and it certainly lived up to all expectations from the moment we stepped through the door, the food ( eight courses !) was simply the best eating...

First time there and overall a great night. Service, food and the room were all great. We did the wine pairings with dinner and I was very impressed with the choice. If you weren't planning to stay up for the live music, perhaps best to ask for a room not directly over the bar.

Stayed in MacNean House & Restaurant with 6 friends for dinner and B&B. From the moment we checked in, I knew it was going to be something special.

I went for tasting menu with wine pairings....

If you want fantastic food in a relaxed dining environment then you have to go. You will have to book well in advance and even further in your calendar for a weekend. It's worth the wait.....stay overnight.....have a few drinks after your meal and enjoy. I could go on at length on the tasting nine course menu but suffice to...

All in all a wonderful experience, well trained staff very capable, efficient and pleasant. Food of the very highest standard and flavour to ignite the taste buds. Now I know why one has to book weeks if not months in advance. Why not join the waiting list!

McNean's in Blacklion in Co. Cavan is wonderful. Upon arrival we were shown to our room which was large and beautifully decorated with very, very comfortable beds and great linens. The bathroom was large and had a great shower, the shampoo, shower gel etc were from Voya a wonderful Irish company. Score room 9/10 - please replace 'coffee' with real...
