MacNean House & Restaurant was originally opened as MacNean’s Bistro in 1989. The Bistro was named after the spectacular MacNean Lakes nearby. Neven Maguire took over the restaurant in 2003 and re-opened it as MacNean House & Restaurant (from his parents) in 2007, doubling its seating capacity, developing 10 luxurious guest-rooms and offering an extended menu featuring his award-winning dishes.

MacNean house offers a dining experience of the highest order. During our visit there we were presented with dishes that were such works of art it was almost a shame to eat them!

There is an €85 (€125 inc wine selection) tasting menu or €70 dinner menu which is what we ordered. I had a starter of rabbit prepared three (or possibly four) different ways. Each one tasted more divine than the next one. Others in our group had scallops, duck and seafood starters. And there was no sharing because all of us loved our dishes too much to give samples away!

There was an in between course offering a choice of pumpkin soup, salad or passion fruit jelly. Three of us opted for the delicious soup and our salad eater said the dressing on the leaves was like nothing she’d ever tasted before.

We ordered main courses of lamb and sea bass. This was bad planning on our part as we did not get to experience the full menu (visually only due to our new ‘no sharing’ policy). But I can say that the lamb was out of this world. It was served four ways and even included a tiny shepherd’s pie which was nothing like what I used to get in boarding school.

Desserts, of course, were delightful little trios on a theme of say raspberries, mango, chocolate… and the cheeseboard also won approval.

I might add that there was also an amuse bouche, a sorbet and petit fours - two mini dishes of three sweeties …which we thought was odd as there were four of us dining! This resulted in blatant grabbing for the last two!

We stayed overnight and the accommodation was excellent but I think Americans might moan about the room sizes. But for a weekend, or an overnight, the rooms were adequate. Breakfast at MacNean’s is another experience altogether and porridge will never be the same again. Ours came served with cream, honey and enough Irish Mist to register on the breathalyser.
