We visited this pub early in the day, around 11am. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners and some of the regulars. They were very nice and quite informative on their viewpoints of the troubles. It was a great experience for us, including the trip to Milltown Cemetary, which was across the street. We would have loved to stay longer and have a couple more pints! This is a must stop for any traveler in Belfast!

tried to leave a review on trip advisor but could not trace McEnaneys on it. I was on the premises for the first time on Easter Sunday and as you can imagine there were a gazillion visitors that day but your staff coped greatly and what I noticed a lot was that our table was regularly cleaned and cleared of empty bottles /dirty glassses which was greatly appreciated so well done to all staff

McEnaneys Bar

A personal view

The meteoric rise in one short year of McEnaneys back to its rightful place as one of the most popular bars in West Belfast is nothing short of astounding - this is in no small part is down to the dedication and attention to detail by husband and wife team Terrance (Sambo) and Ursula McNaughton , along with Gerard Holden and Margaret this management team have managed to revive McEnaneys to its former glory.

Of course not everything is perfect, such is the world... a web site is essential nowadays as is social media.... with just over 2,000 friends their Facebook page needs work.

And then there is Macs notorious blind spot, most new visitors to the bar would see the entrance at the bus depot side as the main entrance however because of the shape of the bar you can at times be completely unnoticed and have to travel round the bar to find service - a strategically placed mirror or monitor should elevate this problem.

But I nitpick, with continued careful management I can see McEnaneys not only as a favourite with locals but as a tourist attraction to rival the Crown Bar in Belfast City centre.

I am glad to see a marked improvement since my last visit. Food top class at unbeatable prices. Vast selection of wine and the staffing issues most importantly seem to be resolved. Well done Manuel and management team.

wise up paul its always has soap and the toilets are never dirty. its the best bar in the west.

Submitted by bug on 19 February 2011

I read all these great reviews but must say I experienced quite the opposite the other evening. The food was average and the attitude of the waitress didnt help. Worst of all was the state of the toilet areas. Not only do they need cleaned, they need basics like soap, hot water and toilet paper!

Submitted by Paul Mc S. on 06 January 2011

again i have been left disappointed at the fact that there was no red wine last night. How do u run a bar/restaurant without the basics. sort it out lads.

Brilliant Bar! Great Staff which I think need a pay rise! Though! Tooooo Many staff on when NOT bissy and 1 bar staff on when packed!!! Not fare on the bar staff! WHO ever manages that place should wake up and get it right. Nobody wants to go into the bar and wait FOREVER on a drink! The more ther merrier and that means staff too. See ya's Sunday

Was at a christening party at mceaneys on sunday was ab fab. Me and my sis cudnt wait for the buffet and snook down for a quick bite to eat and im glad we did. Wot a hidden gem we found, friendly staff prompt food that was of a very high quality and for only ten pound per head for three courses, could not fault it maybe smaller portions ha ha. all in all well done and will see you soon

Went to Sunday lunch with my fiance. I wasn't expecting much but got 3 (half decent) courses for �£10 each! The ribs to start were a bit stringy. The garlic mushrooms were average (very watery after first bite). The two chicken main courses were good value. Deserts weren't bad.

Food on the set menu was average / good value.

All in all not a bad wee place.
