Lemon Tree Restaurant

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The Molloy family made a smooth transition to a much larger restaurant room in 2017 when they moved to new premises at the Courtyard Shopping Centre. As they head towards 20 years in business, the family – brothers Christopher, Gary and Thomas in the kitchen; sisters Linda and Trudy out front – are sharper than ever, and their menus are tribute and testament not just to their own skills, but to the superb phalanx of suppliers who ferry great Donegal produce to their door.

“We like to fly the Donegal flag,” is how Chris Molloy explains their devotion to their county, and fly the flag they do, with everything from vegetables and meats to craft beers and whiskeys sourced from their hinterland. Their dishes weave ingredients with sympathy and culinary insight: duck breast with celeriac and pear purée; monkfish with beef cheek and potato terrine; hake with barley and chicken broth; chocolate mousse with hazelnut ice cream.  Good wines, good beers, great service and superb value all explain the family’s success over two decades. The Lemon Tree’s 20th birthday party is going to be some bash!
