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

50 Pleasants Street, Dublin 8

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 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. Govinda’s

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. Red Thai curry is one of my favourite dishes, so much so that I ate it for breakfast in Thailand. They don’t use oyster/fish sauce in their red Thai curry! Needless to say I’m here quite a lot!

8. Saba

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.

Saba: The 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

63 Dawson Street, Dublin 2

Seasonal cold pressed juices and food. I’ve tried the falafel wrap, and it’s yum!

11. Wagamama

South King Street, Dublin 2

13. Tolteca

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 good sign the food is good, and it moves quickly! I order the veggie sambo and make it vegan! They swap the cheese for avocado for no extra cost and they’re the best sandwiches/wraps out there!


15. Freshii

They have one in the CHQ building in Dublin, but I’m thrilled they have opened in some apple green 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!

16. Cocu Kitchen

16, Chatham Street, Dublin 2

Hatch Street Upper, Dublin 2

9 Baggot Street Upper, Dublin 4

Falafel, tofu and veggie options in a Buddha bowl!

Fumbally lane, Dublin 8

They have veggie and meat options! I tried the vegetarian stew  off the specials board! Really nice atmosphere in here!
