Market Place Brasserie

Liam and Cathy Corbett’s smart neighbourhood restaurant overlooks the old market square and has a few tables outside - a nice spot to enjoy coffee and a cake in the sun.


The decor is classy modern, with an uncluttered scheme (high back chairs and bare topped tables seen against dark warm neutrals), that enhances the recently extended space and works equally well for an informal lunch or evening dining.


Very nice, welcoming staff get a meal here off to a good start and, although the cooking style is international, there are plenty of local - or at least Irish - ingredients in the mix. You’ll probably spot Bluebell Falls goats cheese from nearby Co Clare, Silverhill duck from Monaghan and Slaney Valley lamb, on the menu for example, and possibly many more as the stated policy is to buy locally.


There’s also a flexibility about the menu that’s very customer-friendly; everything is made from scratch, so most dishes can be adapted for customers with special dietary needs, notably coeliacs.


Simple things are done well (a flavoursome potato and mushroom soup, for example) and, while you’ll find quite a few Mediterranean and spicy Asian style dishes, there are also classic Irish favourites - including 21 day dry aged prime Hereford Irish rib eye steak which, at around €24, is the most expensive dish on the evening menu and served with the works (crushed garlic potato and French beans, choice of garlic butter, mushroom cream, or cracked black peppercorn sauce).


Vegetarians get a decent choice on all menus, and there’s plenty of fish - a seafood pie topped with a cheesy potato mash (using the locally made Cahill’s cheese) is a signature dish, and very good it is too.


Classic desserts like pavlova with strawberries & cream or homemade chocolate brownie go very well with excellent coffees and, being an obliging neighbourhood restaurant, you can order food to go, or even have it delivered locally.
