Description: 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 decor. The Market House name originated from the old historical Market Hall which was located in the current building. The perfect place to stop and dine along the Wild Atlantic Way. The Early Bird option available from 5.00 Pm to 9.00 Pm 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 €24.95 Or two course for €20.00. The local trade is very important use local businesses for fresh produce that is sourced locally. The Sunday Carvery is very impressive three course meal for only €22.00,And it's available from 12 noon to 4.00 Pm. For those on the move or need a quick bite, the restaurant offers a Carvery Lunch from €7.00 From 12.00 Noon to 4.00 Pm, Monday to Saturday.

There was music and dancing and drinking. The Market House Restaurant was in a perfect... More
