A vegan in dublin
I just recently moved to Dublin, and I am enjoying the veggie/vegan food scene in here! I have been spoilt for choice. Here are some of my veggie finds. I will keep adding to this list as I find more great veggie/vegan food spots. If I have missed any good ones, please comment below.
So, if you’re in Dublin for a visit or currently living here, I hope you find this useful.
1. Sova Food Vegan Butcher
51 Pleasants St, Dublin 8
46 Rathmines Road Lower, Dublin 6
Just off Camden Street, within walking distance from Grafton Street and St. Stephens Green. They do lunch and dinner, and I believe they have another branch further south, (46 Rathmines Road Lower).
It’s probably one of the most interesting vegan menus I’ve seen yet… pulled pork, doner kebab, seaweed chowder, meatballs, chia burgers and even steak! The pancakes are good too!
2. Meet Me In The Morning
Right next door to Sova Food Vegan Butcher on Pleasants Street. I had the sweet potato with roasted chickpeas! (Vegetarian menu)
3. Cornucopia Restaurant
19/20 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2
Cornucopia (Latin: Cornu Copia) is a symbol of food and abundance; a mythical horn of plenty
This restaurant opened in 1986 and is open seven days a week. You will find home-cooked vegetarian and vegan friendly breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, juices, breads, cakes and desserts.
They cater for coeliac, sugar-free, vegan and raw/living menu options and an organic wine list. They have a cookbook, which I have added to my amazon wish list.
4 Aungier Street, Dublin 2
83 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1
Buffet style food where the menu changes every day. The staff were exceptionally friendly. I bought the smaller plate and was offered a taste of everything. My plate was piled so high, I couldn’t finish it all. Although I made a good attempt! The food was delicious!
5. Happy Food
27 Camden Pl, Dublin 2
I found this place only because I was looking for a yoga studio near my work. What a great find…yoga and vegan food! Two of my favourite things under one roof! I had the pad thai and a bounty bar.
6. Blazing Salads
42 Drury Street, Dublin 2
Do not let the name of this place put you off. It’s not just salads! The food here is delicious. You can get salads of course, but I always go for the hot food and the caramel squares for dessert.
They also have two cookbooks and recipes on their website!
7. The Happy Pear
Church Road, Greystones, Co. Wicklow
This one is kind of cheating, as it is not in Dublin, but you can jump on the dart to Greystones (County Wicklow) for the day, and get some nice food while you’re there. It’s right beside the beach and the Wicklow mountains, so enjoy some healthy food along with some time in nature. You’ll also find the Happy Pear branded food in Dublin supermarkets.
The Happy Pear have a pair of cookbooks, if you can’t make it out to Greystones. I’m hoping they’ll open a Dublin branch soon.
7. Neon Asian Street Food
17 Camden Street, Dublin 2
Asian food is great because it is usually dairy free. I had the Pad Thai, but I’ll be back to try out the Thai curries!
The Westbury Mall, 26-28 Clarendon Street, Dublin 2
22 Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4
Thai and Vietnamese food. They also have ‘Saba to Go’in Dublin 6 & Dublin 14, and they’re own cookbook.
They also do cookery classes! I’d love to learn the art of Thai cooking!
A chain restaurant you’ll find in Dublin. Yasai Pad Thai which is vegan without the egg, and Yasai Yaki Soba, made vegan by swapping the egg noodles for rice noodles.
Another chain burrito restaurant where you can choose your fillings.
Places on my list
13 Dame Street, Dublin 2
32 North Brunswick Street, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7
… also has a yoga studio
Georges Street Market Arcade & Dawson Street
Vegan pancakes, porridge, yoghurts, smoothies etc.
6 Lower Liffey Street, Dublin 1
GPO Arcade, Henry Street, Dublin 1
16 Wicklow St, Dublin 2
Nourish has all the vegan food, beauty products and supplements you might have forgotten to pack.
Don’t miss Dublin VegFest this year! Sarah’s world fare and travelling vegan food market will be making an appearance this year!
Enjoy your Dublin adventure, and return safely!
