We've been to McGovern's quite a few times now and we've never been disappointed! The food is amazing and the staff is really nice. They have a special "Lunch menu" which is very affordable, but I mostly go for the "Cajun Chicken Wrap" which is about 10€, and you get loads! We usually walk from Portmarnock to Malahide, and get...

Misleading display led us to believe that the lunch menu was available ( it was Sunday 1:30pm , stated lunch was from 12-5 everyday ).However after we were seated we were informed that only a la carte was available . Signage on window needs to be accurate and indeed staff need to seem a little more attentive to customers desires... More

It was noisy, busy, the tables were not very clean - so like a real pub. The food was great - we took bream and fish and chips; cheescake and Irish coffee. All was of excellent quality - the cheescake was stunning.

No one asked if we wanted coffee but did collect our plates, we were then left with our drinks for a half hour until after two times we got up and approached the waiter in order... More

Once again we visited McGovern's with friends and were not disappointed. We shared starters, both came with bread and, on request they brought plenty. Our main course consisted of two stakes and two fish. I must say the steak was excellent and our friend enjoyed the fish.....so its not just a "steak house". We were disappointed they have discontinued the... More

With my girlfriends we came to eat in this restaurant, everything was fine until the dessert where when we order with a friend of mine we bring a dessert we say then that it is maybe that the locker did not understand Because we are French and we have trouble pronouncing. But the waiter answers us not your other dessert... More

Visited here as part of a group with children. Staff were really friendly and great with the kids. Menu was varied and prices reasonable. Food was delicious. I will definitely be back again!

The location is very nice right on the corner of town with car parking all down the street. There is lots of choice on the menu and is reasonably priced. Lunch is served from 12pm to 5pm so it's great for people that want a late lunch/early dinner. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere is very nice and cosy and... More
