We've got no motivation after that lazy long weekend so ordering a McDonald's is most certainly on the cards this week.

McDonald's Ireland will be adding the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese to it's menu from Wednesday, August 7. It will only be available for seven weeks, so make sure to grab one before they're gone.

For those of you with a sweet tooth, they've introduced two new ice-creams and we cannot wait to try them. McDonald's Ireland has two new McFlurry options on the menu, but for a limited time only. The Twix McFlurry combines soft dairy ice cream with Twix pieces and chocolate caramel sauce for a delicious treat.

The Mars McFlurry swirls soft dairy ice cream with pieces of Mars and a chocolate caramel sauce. Choosing your favourite flavour is about to get even harder.



Mark your diaries for June 26 because McDonald’s Ireland is introducing not one, not two, not three, not even four – but FIVE new permanent items and their variants to its menu.

Fans are being treated to a bumper line-up of new and improved recipes – as well as the return of some old favourites, giving customers even more choice.

Not only does the new menu boast choices for customers seeking a lighter lunch but there’s also a revamped breakfast classic and a move towards more sustainable packaging in the salad boxes and McFlurrys.

What’s more, McDonald’s Ireland will host a series of ‘Live Your Best Lunch’ events across Dublin, Cork and Galway to celebrate the arrival of the new menu items. The pop-ups aim to encourage people to ditch desk-dining and make the most of their summer lunch hour whilst sampling the new menu free of charge. Guests to the McDonald’s pop-ups can enjoy activities such as Pound Fit, ukulele lessons and paint classes in the restaurants.

Here’s a look at the legendary menu line-up:

Lighter Lunch Choices and Less Plastic

Did you know that you can treat yourself to a delicious meal at McDonald’s for under 400 or 600 calories? The salad and wrap ranges have been revamped to give customers even more lighter lunch options, but with the same big bold flavours and quality ingredients.

The new Chicken Salad gives customers the choice of crispy (265 calories) or the new and improved grilled chicken (133 calories) with a balsamic dressing. Customers can also add bacon to the salad if they wish.

As well as lighter lunch options, McDonald’s are also going lighter on packaging too – removing all single-use plastic from its salad ranges.  All main meal and side salads will now be served in 100% sustainable and renewable cardboard containers, changing out the existing plastic bowl, shaker salad cups and lids which will result in 102 metric tons of plastic removed annually. McDonald’s will also be removing the plastic from the McFlurry packaging, swapping the plastic lid which will remove 383 metric tons of plastic annually.

The popular wrap range is expanding too with the new ‘The Hot Cajun Chicken One’ being welcomed to the range – this time featuring crispy chicken breast strips or grilled chicken with a Cajun sauce, Pepper Jack cheese, tomato, jalapeño slices and lettuce in a soft, toasted tortilla wrap.

The Return of an Old Favourite

The public has spoken, and McDonald’s has listened. Back by popular demand, the announcement of the return of the Smarties McFlurry to McDonald’s full-time offering is sure to excite ice cream fans across Ireland. Made with vanilla ice cream, crushed Smarties and chocolate sauce – the iconic flavour will now sit alongside Maltesers and Oreo on the permanent McFlurry menu.

A New Breakfast in Town

McDonald’s is also launching a new Bacon Roll in Ireland. Featuring three rashers of bacon on a sourdough-style bun with a choice of brown sauce or ketchup. Whether you call it a butty or a bap, the new Bacon roll is sure to be an instant classic.

All items will be available from McDonald’s Ireland restaurants, McDelivery and Drive-Thrus from June 26, 2019.


Summer is on the way and while that excites us, the news that one of our FAVOURITE McFlurrys will be available again takes top billing. 

Remember Aero and Mint Aero McFlurrys?

Of course you do – well, they are going to be back on the menu at McDonald's soon.

After four years, the ice-cream treat will be making summer 2019 the best one in ages, all thanks to its minty chocolatey goodness.  

Starting from next week, the McFlurrys will be available in regular and mini size – but there's a catch.

They'll only be in McDonald's for eight weeks, so snap 'em up while you can.

So what's in them?

Topped with chocolate pieces and a chocolate or peppermint sauce (depending on which one you go for) – sounds delicious, right?

Time to race you to your nearest McDonald's.


Oh McDonald's, how we love you.

Our teeth, however, are less fond espesh when you put two eggs-traordinarily delicious desserts on  the menu.

The folk at Maccy D's are bringing us joy in the form of the – the Cadbury Crème Egg McFlurry and the Cadbury Caramel McFlurry – just in time for Easter.

They will be available from March 20, but they are only here for limited time only – so get cracking!

They’re only in restaurants for six weeks so egg-cited customers had better move fast before they fly the coop.

It seems that people are excited for these delicious treats.

One said, ''Guys!! The Cadbury Creme Egg Mcflurry is back and I little just cried happy tears!!''

While another wrote, ''My favourite time of the year is now: Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry time.'' 

Get them while they're in all good McDonald's near you. 


You know the holidays are coming when McDonalds rolls out their Christmas menu. 

Focusing on winter warming ingredients, the fast food fanatics have introduced two new burger concepts bursting with festive flavour. 

The distinctive menu features a brand new chicken-based burger, and it's launching across the nation today. 

The Chicken Big Tasty, chicken selects, Big Tasty sauce, slivered onions, square cut lettuce, a tomato slice, and Emmental cheese in a square sesame topped bun, is the latest take on the original Big Tasty with beef – which is also making a comeback. 

It will be accompanied by a Big Tasty with bacon.

Vegetarians and cheese aficionados will be delighted to hear that Cheese Dippes, served with spicy tomato dip, are back on the menu. 

Reindeer Treats (carrot bags!) are also now available from all McDonald’s restaurants, the perfect way to get #ReindeerReady for the big day itself.

However, the famous The Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry did not make it back on to the menu, for what would have been it's third appearance. 

The Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry made a huge splash when it was introduced in 2016 and 2017, as fans of the chocolate treat flocked to get their fix. 

However, it has ben replaced this year with a new offering -The Maltesers Reindeer McFlurry: Soft dairy ice cream swirled with mini Malteaser Reindeer shapes, mini Maltesers clusters and a milk chocolate sauce.

Frankly, it sounds just as delicious and we may have ti start incorporating it into our regular dessert rotation. 

For coffee fans, the Toffee Latte is returning – a large shot of delicious Arabica bean espresso, with rich toffee syrup and steamed organic milk, topped with a swirl of cream and a toffee drizzle.

 However, we're most excited for the new addition – The Millionaire’s Latte.


The delicious new member of the McCafé family comprises of a large shot of espresso blended with steamed milk, a caramel biscuit flavour syrup, topped with a swirl of chocolate cream and a caramel drizzle – we're drooling as we speak.

You know the holidays are coming when McDonalds rolls out their Christmas menu. 

Focusing on winter warming ingredients, the fast food brand have introduced two new burger concepts bursting ith festive flavour. 

First up is the Spicy Chicken Winter Melt, which sees two juicy chicken selects smothered with roasted red pepper sauce and cheese.

Second, McD's have created the Beef Winter Warmer, which sees beef, bacon, cheese and veg come together under a snowflake burger bun.

For the veggies in our midst, there are two meat-free options (however, vegans will have to sit this one out).

Replacing the classic mozzarella dippers are Festive Cheese Melt Dippers. Excuse us while we wipe the drool from our chins. 


A post shared by Victoria (@ella_victoria_greyhome) on

Rather than being stuffed with melted mozzarella, these bites are packet with fried camembert cheese and serves with a festive tomato dip. Delightful .

Back on the menu for a second year is the coveted Terry's Chocolate Orange McFlurry

A cult menu item, we've been craving the orange and chocolate McFlurry all year. 


"Six chicken nuggets, large fries and a coke please." 

These are the sweet words we utter when we stand in-front of the McDonalds counter,bursting with happiness.

However, did you know that when you order your meal, you are in-fact benefiting the Queen of England? Well, kind of. 

It has been revealed that the Royal Family actually owns a McDonalds franchise just outside London. 


Is that not the most random thing you have ever heard? 

Just when you think it's all crown jewels and castles, BAM – Big Mac! 

It has been revealed that The Crown acquired Banbury Gate Shopping Centre in Oxford when it was built.

The shopping centre has a McDonalds, as well as a Primark and an Ed’s Easy Diner, we're surprised. 

As you may, or may not know, The Crown Estate is technically owned by the Sovereign in the right of the crown (whatever that means!) and the property is estimated to be worth a staggering £2.4 billion with profits going to Lizzie's Treasury.

Imagine owning a Primark AND a McDonalds? What a time to be alive! 

Oh, and one more thing while we have you! Don't forget that you can catch up on all your favourite shows for free for a month right here, so sign up now!


Let's be honest, we don't generally use the word 'vegan' and the term 'fast food' in the same sentence, but that could be set to change if recent reports are anything to go by.

According to Food & Wine, global fast food giant, McDonalds, are keen to entice the vegan community into the MaccyD family by trialing a new creation.

That's right ladies, it's time to meet the McVegan.

Made with a soy patty and served with vegan fries on the side, the new creation will – for the time being – only be served at a branch in Tampere, Finland.

However, it all comes done to public interest, and if the vegan community bite, then we may be welcoming this exciting new creation to our shores.

Welcome to the future of fast food, ladies.



There's nothing better than munching on a Big Mac when you're hungover. Or when it's your cheat day… or when you're just not bothered cooking.

Either way, it's a pretty juicy meal no matter when or where you have it. And now, you can wear the delicious burger on your T-shirt.

Yep, McDonald's has released a Big Mac clothing collection, and while we admit we were pretty confused to begin with, we're actually totally into the capsule line.

The Big Mac merch will be on sale on the Japanese site Rakuten, but don't fret because they ship internationally so you'll be able to get your hands on these items.

You'll have to act fast though, as there's only 300 of each item available.


Rejoice! The McMór burger is making a comeback to McDonald's.

McDonald's Ireland confirmed the news today that the totally Irish burger is making its way back due to popular demand, however it will only be available for a limited amount of time.

Rolling out nationwide tomorrow, you will be able to enjoy the juicy feed for six weeks only.

The McMór is the fast food chain's first locally sourced burger in Ireland, and is made up of 100 per cent Irish beef, bacon from Dawn Meats and Dew Valley, Charleville Cheddar cheese and Ballymaloe Relish.

We can't wait to sink of teeth into this delish meal again.


Oh, McDonald's. How did you get it so wrong?

As Paddy's Day is fast approaching, so is the release of the Maccy D's Shamrock Shake.

But, its new ad campaign basically has absolutely nothing to do with Ireland.

The video was released on Twitter and shows a man playing the Shamrock Shake as if he was playing on bagpipes.

Bagpipes are Scottish.

Then, Stonehenge appears on screen.

Stonehenge is in England.

Of course, there was outcry from Irish fans the minute it went up, and some of the backlash is brilliant:
