The Market House was designed by Colonel William Hayes of Avondale, County Wicklow and stands in the middle of Market Square. The building is of five bays in length with the centre three arches projected with a secondary pediment. The outer bays contain blank windows. The ends of the Market House have large rusticated arches flanked by round headed niches. Above all the arches are inset panels with festoons while the blank windows and niches have medallions.
