Blacklion, County Cavan


MacNean House & Restaurant, Blacklion, Co. Cavan was originally opened as MacNean's Bistro in 1989 by Neven's parents, Joe and Vera Maguire. The Bistro was named after the spectacular MacNean Lakes nearby. A true family concern, Joe and Vera involved all 9 of their children in cooking and working at the restaurant.


Neven Maguire took over the restaurant in 2001. He re-opened MacNean's Bistro as MacNean House & Restaurant in 2007, doubling its seating capacity, developing 17 luxurious guest-rooms, 2 suites and 2 Courtyard Houses and offering extended menu's of his award-winning dishes and a large selection of wines from all over the world.


Neven and his wife, Amelda, took inspiration for the new décor and recipes from extensive travel and research in London, Paris, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand. The restaurant's new menu reflects Neven's continued advocacy of local and artisan producers and insistence on high quality, seasonal and traceable produce.


Neven and Amelda look forward to welcoming you to MacNean House and Restaurant.
