seating was tight. Kind of not what we were expecting but the food was amazing. Also the chef came out and talk to the customers. It was a cozy experience

Finin's is not really a pub and not really a restaurant, it's something inbetween with the atmosphere of a canteen and food to match. I can't really talk about the upstairs restaurant but the downstairs "pub" was not great. Our table was cramped and we...More

We visited this pub/restaurant as we were holidaying in the area and it gets such good reviews. We booked a table in the pub, as there was nothing available in the restaurant. The pub is small and pokey, but this would not be my main...More

Finins offers typical Irish pub food. The chowder is probably the best dish but everything else is quite plain and a bit boring.

Had a great lunch here one Saturday we where in Midleton. Excellent fish chowder and vegetable curry. Great service also. You'd know it was family run by the exceptional attention to detail. Il be back!!

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.
