The old town hall has been well restored and the restaurant is in an impressive high-ceilinged room with sensitively spare decor - large art works which will be loved or loathed, big plant pots and simple table settings allow the room to speak for itself.

Town Hall Café

Adjacent to (and part of) The Old Ground Hotel, the Town Hall Café has a separate street entrance and a contemporary feel.


The old town hall has been well restored and the restaurant is in an impressive high-ceilinged room with sensitively spare decor - large art works which will be loved or loathed, big plant pots and simple table settings allow the room to speak for itself.


Daytime menus offer a mixture of modern bistro-style dishes and tea-room fare. You can have something as simple as a cup of coffee and a freshly baked scone or a slice of cake - or choose from an appealing range of savoury dishes.


You'll find light dishes (such as a crabmeat and salmon paté with a granny smith salad and lime mayonnaise), healthy salads (pan fried lambs livers on a beetroot, red onion & parsnip salad perhaps), old favourites (like chargrilled pork cutlet  on the bone, with Clonakilty sweet potato, mushroom & thyme ragout and bearnaise sauce) and hearty sandwiches (typically tomato bread with brie, Parma ham & rocket leaves). Imaginative, wholesome and well-priced, this is just the kind of food people need to re-charge during a day's shopping. Desserts from a daily selection.


Sundays bring a completely different menu, with an emphasis on seafood, steaks and roasts.


In the evening, an appealing à la carte menu is offered and this characterful room is transformed into an atmospheric restaurant, with candlelit tables set up to create the right ambience for dinner. 

Seats 60; children welcome (high chair); broadband wi/fi (free). Reservations recommended except for snacks. Open from 10am daily: L 12-4.30pm, D 6-9.45pm (to 9.30pm Sun). Early bird D €20 6-7pm. House wines from €18. Closed 25 Dec. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser abbreviations
