The Watermelon Restaurant

The Watermelon Restaurant at the Holyrood has a relaxing, yet formal air. Think plush, elegant furnishings, soft lighting and luxurious carpets. It’s warm and inviting at any time of year.

You’ll find a great welcome from our staff at the restaurant, who pride themselves on the quality of their service, insuring that your dining experience is an occasion.   

At the Watermelon Restaurant, we have a fantastic selection of mouth-watering local and international dishes to choose from. Our dishes use only fresh, local produce and are prepared by our team of award-winning chefs.

Think fish dishes using seafood, fresh off a trawler in near-by Killybegs, mouth-watering chargrilled steaks and delicious vegetarian options. Classic dishes like turkey and ham, roast beef and spring lamb are always well received, and we have a to-die-for list of desserts for those with a sweet tooth!

If you have a special dietary requirement, just let us know and our staff will do their utmost to accommodate you.

Our wine list is extensive at the Watermelon and we’re happy to recommend the perfect bottle to accompany your meal.

We offer a special meal rate for the Watermelon restaurant for all our customers staying at the hotel.

Our menu changes nightly but always has a wide variety of mouth watering meals to choose from. It is also designed with families in mind.
