McAteers The Food House is a family-friendly restaurant, gourmet food store and deli serving delicious, natural food in beautiful surroundings and at very reasonable prices, in the centre of Dundalk. We have been in the service business our entire adult lives. Service is where it all starts and ends.
We rate service as much as the produce in a shop or restaurant.
After years of working in and running other peoples’ businesses (and serving people in the air!) we opened Mash Café & Restaurant in Rathmines, Dublin. Though a very non-restaurant area, through hard work, great service and food, we gave it our all became a local success. We got some great reviews over the years with Mash, not least our favourite “The Friendliest Duo In Ireland” by The Lonely Planet Guide. We know what we like: amazing food, good craic and great people.
The Food House is a concept of old and new. Old, as in old Irish with everything under one roof. New, as in downtown New York. We not only wanted to design a relaxed and inviting spot to shop and have a bite, we also wanted to work hard on sourcing really good basic produce, fresh and local where possible with no additives but pure goodness. We barely know the taste or recognise what we are eating nowadays. This is what we are endeavoring to change with our Food House.
We have a simple but very tasty menu in our restaurant, with a huge choice of wines and beers, organic fair trade coffee and loose tea. Our desserts from our own pastry chef are a must. We also have a great choice to take home from our delicatessen. Our grocery shop stocks all your basics, plenty of gourmet treats, and some new ideas including organic vegetables and freshly-baked bread.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
