Booked a group of 15 in here last week and have to say we were looked after superbly. were given a private room upstairs whcih suited us perfectly as it was a family get together and we could enjoy each others company without disturbing other diners. The meal was great value and everyone left satisfied. keep up the good work.

Stopped in after our tour of the Jameson Distillery (right around the corner). Well worth it! The food was terrific, fresh fish and many other options. Staff was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. A good find in Midleton!

We had an hour and a half to pass in Midleton so we ate here. Once you come through the front door it's like taking a step back in time. Saying that steak was very good and my friend had the seafood chowder and raved about it. The desserts were lovely as well. Nice staff and good grub.

Finin O'Sullivan's thriving bar and restaurant in the centre of Midleton town has long been a popular place for locals to meet for a drink and to eat some good wholesome food. The entrance is bright and cheery, painted in pillarbox red and white, and the theme is continued inside, where black topped tables are simply set up with the basics needed for a meal. This attractive, no-nonsense place offers a wide range of popular home-made dishes, mostly based on local produce notably fresh seafood from Ballycotton and harbour steaks, also old favourites like a well-made Irish Stew; evening menus are more extensive and include some more specialities including roast duckling. Good short wine list.
