I was here last week with friends to get some dinner. I ordered the BBQ chicken wings for starter and they were amazing. Was given a bowl of water and lemon to wash hands after. I then had the chicken burger and was very pleased with what i got as i am a fussy eater. My friend ordered the steak... More

Spent a couple of days in Malahide tracing our family history. We had a fantastic dinner here which really surpassed expectations and was the best food I ate while in Ireland. I diverted from steak and had the hake dish which really was exquisite and very well priced. Would definitely recommend!

We'd been in Dublin for the night and were looking something tasty, you know the thing, maybe you might have been over doing it the night before, were a bit tired and needed food but the sort that satisfied your craving but didn't add to the guilt of the over indulgence of the previous evening. Well McGoverns ticks that box.... More

Recently dropped by for a quick(ish) lunchtime meal. Their special was a homemade hamburger. It was really tasteful and was good value. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

My wife and I each had a burger - we have been in ireland for 9 days and wanted something regular - our burgers were really good and the thin fries are good as well. This is a busy place. Might be hard to just walk in

Myself and my girlfriend came here for food after a nice cycle in Malahide castle and gardens which is nearby. We both got cokes. My girlfriend ordered fish and chips and I ordered Roast Chicken supreme. Our food was very tasty and the service was good. Staff are nice and efficient. Price wasn't too bad either, just over €40.

I went for an early dinner today with family and after recommending it to everyone I was extremely disappointed. I used to go quite a lot and the food never disappoints but today the service was just awful and it wasn't even busy! My sister asked 3 separate times until she finally got a drink and after mains we asked... More

The worst service I have experienced in years. Trying to get the staff who were not very busy to come to ur table was an experience in itself. If u didn't order everything together the meal was finished before u got a soft drink.
