Over the last 10 years, the Market House restaurant on the Diamond, Donegal Town, has built up an enviable reputation for quality food at affordable prices. Fronting onto the Diamond’s iconic monument, the interior is spacious and traditional with a clever twist of modern décor. The Market House name originated from the old historical Market Hall which was located in the current building.

The Christmas Dine & Wine (plus a bottle of quality house wine) for €59 has set the standard locally for fine food at an affordable price.Abbey Hotel Christmas Dine for €59 2014

While the Market House restaurant is part of the Abbey Hotel, management has successfully created a stand-alone eatery on par with anything around. We changed the name, appointed a manager and hired a top quality chef. Our staff are highly trained and all live locally.
