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 Weekend Special of a Meal for Two (plus a bottle of quality house wine) @ €59 has set the standard locally for fine food at an affordable price.Market House Menu The Abbey Hotel Donegal

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” James White, the owner told the Times.

“We applied the same concept for the adjoining Coffee House and we’re very pleased with that also.”

The Early Bird option available from 5pm to 9pm is ideal for anyone on a budget or who simply likes to eat early. “Our chef has created an excellent three course menu for only €22” Ann Boyle, manager of the restaurant said. “The local trade is very important to us. We support local businesses and our fresh produce is sourced locally”.

The presentation and choice of food for the Sunday Carvery is very impressive. For €22, you can eat as much as you want and it’s available from 12 noon to 4pm.

For those on the move or need a quick bite, the restaurant offers a Carvery lunch for just €10.95 from 12 noon to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.

The Market House Restaurant has received an important nomination for its excellence in food and service by the prestigious Restaurants Association of Ireland.

Reviews on Trip Advisor have been most favourable from both locals and visitors alike.

The Market House restaurant will feature prominently once again at the forthcoming Donegal Town Food Festival.

“We’re delighted to be associated with it and wish it every success” Ann Boyle said. “This month the Market House Restaurant is 10 years in business and on behalf of everyone involved in its success, we thank you for your custom”.
