sited in an old jail which makes it an interesting exhibition space.

Stayed here quite a few years ago.The food was good and the stafff friendly. Very good value.more
The Windsor comes highly recommended and, according to my straw poll amongst local friends, is the second best restaurant in Dundalk. I took visitors there early on a Friday evening. The restaurant is upstairs from the pub. Surprisingly, we were okay without a reservation but we did have to wait 10-15 minutes for a free table. That was no problem at all.
When we were seated I found the service excellent, and was amazed to find a good menu and delicious food. Typical main courses cost between 10-15 euros so great value too.
Favorite Dish: I had the duck and it was superb!
Run by an Italian proprietor, this restuarant captures the athmosphere of an authenic Italian trattoria from the colourful tableclothes to the Italian movie posters on the wall.
The menu is strong on pizza and pasta, with a selection of meat, chicken and fish dishes as well.
There's a Bring Your Own option for two diners although any more will have to buy of the wine list.
Reasonably priced and family friendly.
There are two sittings, at 6pm and 9pm. Booking recommended, especially at weekends. Closed Mondays.
A converted town house facing the cathedral in Dundalk town centre. The food is of a very high standard, as is the service. It is a great dining experience with a wide range of freshly prepared gourmet food and a great wine list. The decor is modern yet cosy.
Cube is open for lunch on weekdays and dinner every night except Sundays. The lunch is very good value with such main courses as deep fried cod fillet with chunky chips, wild boar bangers and mash or grilled monkfish. The typical price at lunch is from €9.95 to €14.95. Dinner is more expensive, maybe a little bit too expensive for Dundalk.
Favorite Dish: There are too many good dishes to pick a favourite!!
Since opening its doors The Spirit Store has earned a well deserved reputation as a popular venue for those who
appreciate live music. The upstairs venue is an intimate setting, candles and the tables, holding just 100+, and attracting
brilliant acts. The likes of Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, John Martyn, and Michele Shocked have played there in t he past.
The pub is located on the quayside with fabulous views over Dundalk Bay and the Cooley mountains. Just magic when
the swans swim up to the quay wall and there's a full moon! Good list of continental beers took
