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.
On behalf of all the team at McAteers,

We regularly order food from Mc Ateers The food House. We have found it to be outstanding, well priced and always on time. We try to order well in advance but from time to time with unexpected clients calling and meetings that have run overtime, we may need food unexpectedly and in a hurry. Mc Ateers have always help us out and do their best to get lunch to us ASAP. Their delivery service is excellent. Their range of daily lunch specials suits out needs and our visitors have often commented on the quality and freshness of their food. All this helps the ethos of the company. I would have no problem recommending Mc Ateers The food House to others, and would like to thank them for all their supportANORD / .
I was delighted when McAteers The Food House opened up in the centre of Dundalk. Their foods are fantastic and for some years now I have placed significant orders on the run up to Christmas for their Festive Hampers which I have given as corporate gifts to valued customers. McAteers have got the balance right in their restaurant and food shop – there’s always something that you will want to buy and the staff are really helpful and friendly. It’s a great place to have in Dundalk, conveniently located on Clanbrassil Street and I’d often pop in for a dependably delicious breakfast or lunch if I’m out and about with the kids at the weekend. Well worth a visit if you’re looking for a tasty treat or a kitsch gift for someone specialVIDA Living /
