Tuck into Ireland’s meat-free feasts and tasty treats at one of these fantastic vegan-friendly food spots dotted around the island. Vegan or not, you won’t be able to resist.

Specialising in a vegan and vegetarian cuisine is the 18th century themed Georgian dining rooms of the Cornucopia in Dublin. Its lavish menu shows how eating out when vegan can be delicious! For a more on-the-go food stop in the city, pop into Beanhive for one of its famous flavour-packed sandwiches.

The Happy Pear Café in County Wicklow is recognised for its colourful and positive atmosphere that aims to promote a healthier and more sustainable world, starting with what we eat. You’ll find a similar vibe at the sweet independent Lighthouse Café in Galway, filled with vegan dishes made from locally-sourced ingredients.

Sligo’s Sweet Beat Café is living proof of how clean, healthy eating is better than any fast food. We recommend its coconut curry – a mouth-watering dish that will fill your heart as well as your tummy! In the heart of Cork City is Café Paradiso – it always brings a touch of luxury to Ireland’s vegan dining and creates unique tastes and flavours.

As you tour Northern Ireland’s walled city of Derry~Londonderry, be sure to head over to Pykes ‘N’ Pommes for one of its mouth-watering veganderry burgers or cauliflower tacos; while the Ursa Minor Bakehouse in County Antrim serves fresh breads and pastries every day for the perfect breakfast treat. But if you’re simply craving a bit of junk food, Eat Street Belfast is for you because being vegan doesn’t always have to be about being healthy!

Do any of our community members have recommendations for more delicious vegan destinations they’ve checked out in Ireland?

- Thyme Out in Dingle, co Kerry: home cooked buddha bowls, soups, refreshing salads, and baguettes in a cosy cottage with a magical garden.
- Sunflour in Cork, co Cork: hand made fresh pasta and sourdough pizza. Open kitchen concept, mind-blowing quality and taste!
These two vegan restaurants are my all-time favourites! Enjoy.

Glas in Dublin truly shows what vegan food can be in the right hands. It's elegant and gourmet vegan food, where you feel like you've truly had an out of the box restaurant experience.

Paradiso in Cork is another example of vegan fine dining, and an all-time favourite among vegans, and a trendsetter; it opened in 1993.

Looking for something a little bit more casual that will blow your taste buds away? Pure Authentic Indian Vegetarian Food in Galway is a casual little food truck on Galway's market square with truly amazing traditional Indian food. There are lots of vegan options, and my personal favourite was the Aloo naan!

Some great suggestions above already!

If you're like me and love to have a hearty brunch when on holiday, you'll find that there are some really yummy plant-based options available! Here are some of my favourite Dublin locations for a vegan weekend brunch, or even just a delicious breakfast to start off your day:

As already mentioned, Cornucopia, a fully vegan eatery is a great spot to begin with. Their food is always fresh and everything cooked to perfection. Brother Hubbard, which now has 4 locations across Dublin, also offers several vegan options and alternatives for its breakfast and brunch menus. Don't hesitate to visit Taste Food Company whose extensive menu and options are sure to please! Their Sunday Brunch special vegan menu is a culinary experience in itself!  And finally, Tang, for whom sustainability is a central part of their thinking and menus also proposes some very enjoyable plant-based options for breakfast. 

Bon appetit!
