MacNean House & Restaurant

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Neven Maguire is the news. When the media want a reaction story to Brexit, they call Mr Maguire in his restaurant, MacNean House, in Blacklion, County Cavan. His family life is meat and drink for media profiles. His television presence is permanent. His radio slots are enduring, his cookery demos are a rollercoaster event, coming soon to a town near you. His fame is so total that it’s sobering to remember that all this is built on the basis of excellent modern cooking, served in a small restaurant with rooms, in a remote country village in the Irish borderlands. But once you taste Maguire’s food – the scallops with pork cheeks; the braised feather blade with oxtail; the Thornhill duck with quinoa; the halibut with basil risotto – you realise that what has made him famous is the unalloyed generosity of his cooking: he wants to please everyone, every time
