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.
They have been in the service business their entire adult lives. Service is where it all starts and ends. They 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!) they opened Mash Café & Restaurant in Rathmines, Dublin. Though a very non-restaurant area, through hard work, great service and food, they became a local success.
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. They not only wanted to design a relaxed and inviting spot to shop and have a bite, they also wanted to work hard on sourcing really good basic produce, fresh and local where possible with no additives but pure goodness. They barely know the taste or recognise what we are eating nowadays. This is what we are endeavouring to change with our Food House.
They 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. They 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 breads.
