Inside worlds most beautiful McDonalds with wooden beams and clock tower

One of the things people like about McDonalds is that the food is reliably the same wherever you go. But that’s not necessarily true of the restaurants themselves.

Visitors to Bray, in County Wicklow, Ireland, have dubbed the town’s Maccy-D’s “the most beautiful McDonald’s in the world”.

Built inside a disused town hall, the McDonald’s features a Tudor-style exterior and high vaulted ceilings with ancient wooden beams.

One well-informed Tripadvisor reviewer wrote: “What sets it apart is that it is located in Bray Town Hall, built in the Tudor Revival style built in the early 1880s, funded by Lord Brabazon. The small fountain outside features a wyvern, a mythological winged dragon from the Brabazon coat of arms”.

The original Town Hall and Market house was indeed commissioned by Reginald Lord Brabazon, in 1882, in the Tudor revival style that was popular at the time.

Another impressed customer added: “The setting for this McDonald's is amazing. What a fun change from the modern box restaurant. What a wonderful use of an old building."

The building was converted into a fast food joint in 1997, but many of its original features remain unchanged, including a mock Tudor inscription which reads: “In all your dealings be ye just and true.Who traffic here beware no strife ensue

“Let [justice] strictly in the scale be weighed. So shall ye call God’s blessing on your trade.”

A visitor from San Francisco said that they were disappointed that none of his local fast food places were as attractive: “I walked in and just was baffled!,” he wrote.

“Attractive servers, great service, and some sort of Jane Austen / old period piece appeal from the appearance outside!

“Only thing else I could ask for is well, to go back again! I am half Polish, so the staff were really kind and it was nice to converse with them in Polish.

He added: “We could have this in America, sure, but we waste money on other things… The best looking McDonald's in Europe that I've set foot in! Go see for yourself!”

If you’re considering a trip to see this fast food miracle yourself, Bray is a picturesque seaside town which has long been a favourite for Dubliners looking for a weekend break.

There’s a jazz festival every May, and a silent film festival on the historic Killruddery Estate, in March.

For more physical types, the estate also hosts the gruelling Hell And Back obstacle race, which combines lots of man-made obstacles with Killruddery's famous natural terrain, including rivers, mountains, bogs and forests, to create what the organisers promise is “a uniquely terrifying challenge”.

And then when you’ve finished that, you can have the fanciest Big Mac in the world.
