As the busiest McDonald’s restaurant in Ireland it is important that our customers can access the best family-friendly facilities and services on offer. The new self-order kiosks allow customers to make more personalised food choices, which we know is what customers are looking for. We are particularly excited about some of the behind the scenes changes taking place in the kitchen, which will ensure that we continue to serve made-to-order meals using the best quality ingredients, in the most efficient time possible.”
