Centrally located in Dublin’s city centre, this wholefood and vegetarian haven offers everything you need for a vegan stop-off. Here you can find soups, salads and hot main course aplenty, plus a fine selection of breads, cakes and desserts.

For an eat-in breakfast and lunch – or a takeaway dinner – this meat-free spot is tucked away next to YogaHub’s yoga studio. So relax or catch up with friends over some delicious raw vegan cheesecakes and a variety of smoothies and hot drinks. Or take your pick from the brilliant lunch menu: enjoy a protein burger, a Mexican burrito or pad Thai.

Umi Falafel

In Dublin we found the best falafel bar ever! I'm not ashamed to admit that I visited four times in three days. This is my Palestinian falafel lunch deal at @umifalafel. If you're in Dublin you must visit. Central location on Dame street near Temple Bar and the River Liffey. Super friendly staff and reasonable prices. (Shameless promotion, I just really loved the restaurant!)

This restaurant and takeaway brings the taste of the Middle East to the heart of Dublin! That means you can load up on a variety of fresh falafel sandwiches and wraps – or go for a lighter lunch with a traditional Moroccan quinoa salad or popular Palestinian tahini salad. From the mezze, you can choose anything from stuffed vine leaves to batata hara or spicy potato wedges.




Ate at Govinda's for the first time!! It was really good and a big portion, the tofu was kinda cold, i didnt like the squash on the left, but the 2 on the right were super delicious, wish i just got those! Its definitely a great option and everything that they had was vegan💯

With two Dublin locations to choose from, this vegetarian chain serves a traditional Indian cuisine and a few twists on some classics. Choose from vegetable curry served with basmati rice and a salad – or go for a homemade veggie burger made of rice, lentils, veggies, peanuts and spices, all in a homemade pitta bread.

Blazing Salads

Lunch at Blazing Salads 😍 Literally got a bit of everything… #noregrets

An ever-changing menu means that everything is always fresh, seasonal and exciting here. The specials stem from its chosen grains, vegetables and houmous of the week: expect the likes of green lentil and spinach curry for dinner or a date and apple cake for a sweet treat.

Fallon & Byrne

Fallon & Byrne 지하에 와인바. 역시 여기도 좋구나~ #Ireland #Dublin #Fallonandbyrne #Winebar #Ilovedrinking

This foodie’s paradise combines a wine cellar, a food hall and a restaurant specialising in lovingly prepared seasonal ingredients. And the best bit? There’s a tempting three-course vegan menu available.

Freshly Chopped

Lots of tasty fresh veggies in this wrap from Chopped in Dublin. #vegan #vegandublin

Specialising in exciting and energising salads, this is definitely a “healthy food company”. Try the Marinated Tofu Garden Salad with organic tofu and roasted veggies, or make your own from the extensive ingredients list. If you need a boost, grab the Vegan Body Builder brown rice salad – packed full of protein and tasty goodness!


Brunching out @yogism – vegan buckwheat pancakes with house made coconut yoghurt, almond butter, cinnamony stewed pineapple, agave & toasted nuts👅👅👅

This health café provides granola bowls, pancakes and superfood smoothies – perfect for breakfast or lunch. Our favourite is the vegan pancakes, served with homemade coconut yoghurt and almond butter.

With two branches to choose from – find it at either Temple Bar or Grattan Street – Staple Foods offers an ever-changing menu that has plenty of tasty vegan options. From baked falafel and houmous to a Mexican black-bean salad, it’s a great spot for lunch, complete with vegan smoothies, juices and hot drinks.

Yamamori Noodles

Friday night dinner date 💖 We went to Yamamori for tofu with mango sauce on a veg bed, black rice and miso soup💫 Very tasty stuff 😋

Dublin’s original Japanese restaurant, this vegan-friendly spot offers various options to choose from. Check out the tofu steak marinated with mango and sesame seed sauce – and served with stir-fried veggies and a bowl of vegetarian miso soup and brown steamed rice.

    I have just recently become a vegetarian and I can honestly say that since I became vegetarian and cut out all meat products, I don’t at all miss meat from my diet.

  • aoibheann commented on May 24, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    Im in the process of becoming a vegan from vegiatrian but i am NOT A STRICT VEGAN YET – However i do want to become 100% vegan and cut out all animal sourced food-products from my life,not only will this help with my healthy lifestyle,im an animal lover at heart and recently seen a halal video of a cow being tortured to death while some man was reciting prayer,im sure traditional is bad too but the halal was horrible the cow was SCREAMING its head off – QUITE LITERALLY! I couldn’t bear it,i see how brow beaten cows are from the farmers,and not treated well,i wish we would worship the cows like the indians do…All animals are sentinent beings,im even gone off fish now from seeing a documentary on tv about the empty oceans,it really annoys me greatly,i don’t know how though we can eat sustainably i think there are FAR TOO MANY ”HUMANS” on the planet….We are eating up the earth like locusts – okay rant over. :o)

    You seem to of missed two of the newest and best vegan places in Dublin. Sova vegan butcher and vegintiy. Both these are a cut far above all the places you mention for innovation and creative completely vegan food. I think both of these places will shape the Dublin vegan scene in the future so yo should check them out.



    • Sharon commented on July 21, 2016 at 10:10 pm

      Agreed re Sova vegan butcher. We enjoyed a fantastic meal there last week.

  • Clare Wilkinson commented on July 21, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    Another great place for vegan treats in Dublin is Goodness Gracious who make luxury raw desserts. For sale in Fresh supermarkets, The Punnet health food store and also online

  • Darren commented on August 17, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    Worth checking out Wyldsson – they’re Irish and have a range of healthy stuff. All online. Their vegan nutella is AMAZING!!! Great alternative to regular nutella, which has milk in it. I know it sounds stupid, but nutella was one of the things that I really missed when I turned vegan! https://wyldsson.com/product/nutella-alternative/
