The Vegan and Vegetarian Guide to Ireland can now be found here (http://vegans.frommars.org/ireland/) . Could be very handy. :)

Morning everybody!
My wife, cats and I are looking to relocate to Southern Ireland from the UK at some point in the near future (hopefully!) and I just wondered if there are any vegans on here from that fair isle or if anyone has experience of being vegan in Ireland. Any input greatly appreciated!

Cheers
Justin

hey, i live in galway in the west of Ireland. it can be tricky being vegan here but it's not TOO bad. there are health food stores with a fairly good range of products, eating out can be a pain though because there are hardly any veggie restaurants in ireland. most places will whip you up a vegan meal if you ask though, i usually say i'm allergic to dairy, eggs ect. because if you tell people over here you're vegan they look at you like you've got three heads and you'll probably end up with cheese on your meal.

This thread is a bit old, but someone might find it useful, so...

I live in Cork (south of Ireland),I don't have any difficulty buying Vegan foods as there are a lot of health food stores in the city and in most shopping centres etc. Eating out is a bit tricky, but there are two vegetarian/vegan restauants -that I know of- in Cork: The Quay Co-op, which has a fantastic shop downstairs, and Cafe Paradiso (gourmet restaurant).

This might be also useful >> http://vegans.frommars.org/pocket_guide_to_ireland.pdf

I might be able to pop over to Dublin for a day or so. Are there any good places that do Vegan food, or is taking a rucksack full of cereal bars a good idea?

Is Anywhere else in Eire / Ulster good for a visit as a Vegan?

Thanks.

Although I didn't eat in it I called into Blazing Salads in 42 Drury StreetDublin (http://vegans.frommars.org/ireland/index.php?location=Dublin) 2 and it's a fantastic shop, they had a cheese counter and meat products but they also had the freshest fruit & veg selection I've ever seen, although a bit expensive looking.
I had some fruit crumble in Juice 73 South Great Georges StreetDublin (http://vegans.frommars.org/ireland/index.php?location=Dublin) 2 which is near Blazing Salads and it was lovely. Seemed to be a good vegan menu & nice ambiance.
There is also a really good Mexican cafe in Temple bar, I forget the name but it was painted in bright colours & their food was delicious.
Nourish 16 Wicklow Street Dublin (http://vegans.frommars.org/ireland/index.php?location=Dublin) 2, near the h'penny bridge was good for vegan bits & pieces from their fridge.
If you get a chance I'd recommend the river cruise that leaves from the front of the Arlington Hotel (also near the h'penny bridge) 45mins of interesting snippets about Dublin & the day pass on the open topped bus is really good value.

Hi there I am new to this site.
If you are going outside of Dublin there is an organic vegan bed and breakfast in county Limerick, they have a website but I have never been there myself. Let me know if you want the link to the website.
I live in a rural area so obviously there aren't any vegan restuarants around that I know of, I usually end up eating salad and chips/baked spud when I am out. Get to know the owner of your local health food shop and they are generally more than happy to order in stuff for you that they don't have in stock. Hope this helps.

Thanks. If you could PM me the link to that B&B that would be really helpful. I probably won't be going until next year, but I can keep the details to one side.

Cornucopia (Wicklow Street, Dublin 2) is another good place for visitors to the city, central location & clearly marks which options are vegan. Usually packed but that has to be a good sign!

Fresh (top floor powerscourt townhouse centre, South William St. Dublin 2) also have vegan options & large portions!!

Feral mentioned Blazing Salads (http://www.blazingsalads.com) in her post, it's probably my favourite place for food in Dublin, get the vegan pizza!!!!

Nourish have a few shops in Dublin http://www.nourishonline.ie/healthshop/Main/About.htm

Also the Dublin Food Co-op is open every Saturday between 9am and 3pm. It's in St Andrews Resource Centre, Pearse Street, Dublin 2
www.dublinfoodcoop.com

LUSH have some outlets in Dublin too, Grafton Street and Henry Street. There are loads more places but these are a good starter

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the great recommendations - had fantastic meals in Juice, Fresh and the Cedar Tree in Dublin at the weekend, and a lovely lunch in the Quay Co-op in Cork City yesterday (although they had a honey and ginger dressing on their supposedly vegan rice salad).

Happy tummy!

i usually have no problem, consult www.frommars.org (http://www.frommars.org) and you'll get a whole list of places that are vegan friendly.
the menu in juice never changes and i don't lke the fact they NEVER have vegan spread or vegan cream and the only desert they do is sugar free crumble with expensive swedish glace added on.

Cafe Fresh in the Powerscourt Shopping Centre in Dublin is a vegetarian restaurant and will cater for vegans (with a smile instead of a grumble).
