Our History

Since 1977, we’ve been proud to serve the Irish people with some of their favourite food. And along the way, we’ve managed not just to live history, but create it:  from the first drive-thru restaurant in Europe, to the first McCafé in Europe to our ongoing food innovation, McDonald's has been at the forefront of serving our customers. It’s been quite the journey, and we promise this is just the beginning-we’ve got our hearts set on making more history.

Timeline

The first McDonald’s opened in Ireland on Grafton Street in May 1977 - since then, we've grown our business and are one of Ireland's largest employers.
