I just recently moved to Dublin, and I am thoroughly 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 porc, 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)
19/20 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2
Cornucopia (Latin: Cornu Copia) is a symbol of food and abundance; a mythical horn of plenty
This is 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
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, but be careful of fish pastes used in the curries, always best to ask. They have a vegan/vegetarian menu. Needless to say I’m here quite a lot!
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!
9. Dublin Pizza Company
32 Aungier Street, Dublin
VEGAN PIZZA! So exciting!
10. Sprout & Co Kitchen
Seasonal cold pressed juices and food. I’ve tried the falafel wrap, and it’s yum!
South King Street, Dublin 2
Japanese chain restaurant. Yasai Pad Thai which is vegan without the egg, and Yasai Yaki Soba, made vegan by swapping the egg noodles for rice noodles.
10 Kevin Street Lower, Dublin 8
Chain Mexican restaurant where you can choose your fillings. I’ll be honest, I don’t quite understand the Boojum obsession…but maybe it’s your thing!
40 Camden Street, Dublin 2
Mexican food! Vegan burrito/fajita fillings available!
14. The Green bench
18 Montague St, Dublin 2
Don’t be put off by the long queue! It’s a sign that the food is good, and it moves really quickly! They don’t have a vegan option on the board, but if you ask for a vegan sandwich or wrap, they are happy to fix you one up! It’s usually the veggie option but they swap the cheese for avocado or humous for no extra cost. They are delicious! The soups are all vegan and the salad dressings don’t contain honey anymore. I recently discovered the banana bread and some muffins are vegan too. Be sure to ask, if you’re sweet tooth is calling.
They have one in the CHQ building in Dublin, but I’m thrilled they have opened in some Applegreen petrol stops for our Ireland road trips, and when I’m en route home to Northern Ireland! I had the khao San wrap! It’s great having the option of healthy food instead of Burger King chips! They now have a vegan chilli 🙂
16. Cocu Kitchen
16, Chatham Street, Dublin 2
Vault 4, The Station Building, Hatch Street Upper, Dublin 2
9 Baggot Street Upper, Dublin 4
Falafel, tofu and veggie options in a Buddha bowl!
17. Bernard Shaw beer garden – Big Blue Bus
Vegan pizza 🙂
A restaurant and food stall at Eat Yard! The restaurant is essentially a warehouse down an alley way but the is good and the menu changes weekly!
Winning loads of awards for their vegan street food! Vegan fish and chips 🙂
19. Fumbally cafe
Fumbally lane, Dublin 8
They have veggie and meat options! I tried the vegetarian stew off the specials board! Really nice atmosphere in here!
20. McGuinness Take Away
Camden Street, Dublin 8
A VEGAN CHIPPER! By the far one of the most exciting of finds!
21. Umi Falafel Restaurant
13 Dame Street, Dublin 2
Lots of falafel options!
24 Suffolk Street, Dublin 2
Italian style restaurant with whole vegan/vegetarian menu if you ask! Vegan wine included 🙂

Vegan donuts 🙂
72-74 Queen Street, Smithfield, Dublin 7
Vegan burgers, vegan tacos, vegan chilli fries, vegan tenders, vegan hot dogs, vegan calamari … AND arcade games! An accidental and very exciting find!
26. Tea Room
Phoenix Park, Dublin 8
Really cute building within Phoenix park (beside the zoo entrance) with vegan buns!
9 Vernon Avenue, Clontarf, Dublin 3
This is our go to place at the weekends for breakfast. I normally get the vegetarian breakfast and swap the egg for avocado to make it vegan. The mushroom on toast is another big favourite. They have soy milk for coffee’s, but I go for the freshly squeezed orange juice or kombucha. They have a vegan option on their dinner menu too.
Woodtsock and Olive’s Room are brother companies! I have yet to try them, but I see they have vegan options. Olive’s Room lives in the old stable building within St. Anne’s Park, in Clontarf.
28. Happy Out
Dollymount beach, Bull Island, Clontarf, Dublin
New café which serves coffees toasties and tray bakes. They do soy milk and I spotted some vegan brownies.

I am lucky to live across the road from Supervalu and I have noticed a steady incline of vegan products…such as Linda McCartney, Harvest Moon, Cauldron, Quorn, Strong Roots, Violife, Alpro, NoBo, Swedish Glace, So Jade, Naked, and Simply Meat Free!
Inglot is a make up store in Dublin if you forgot your mascara on your trip. They don’t test on animals. Body Shop and Lush don’t either. There is honey is some of their products though, so be sure to check labels.
