Now a McDonalds outlet, the former Townhall was commissioned by the 11th Earl of Meath to look down the main street of Bray. Designed by Thomas Manly Deane and his assistant Guy Dawber (who later returned to England and ran a successful country house practice), the townhall is reminiscent of medieval market houses in England or Germany. The interior of the market hall is now the fast food restaurant and its high roof with its exposed beams and galleries can be appreciated.
