Vegan Guide to Dublin, Ireland

Dublin is the capital of Ireland. It's also the most populous city in Ireland. It's known for its lively nightlife, live music venues, Celtic music, Irish Culture, historic buildings and numerous museums including EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.

Why You Should Go: Ireland is a fun country to visit with lots of beautiful countryside and Dublin the biggest city. It's a lot of fun and there is a lot of entertainment in Dublin. The city has a lot character with old pubs and places to watch live music. It's the home of Guinness which is recently vegan and also Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Getting to Dublin: You can fly to Dublin airport, DUB, and get the bus to downtown Dublin. You could also get a taxi or rent a car to get to and from the airport. You can also take a ferry to Ireland from the UK or France through Irish Ferries. Obviously, you get get the bus, train or drive to Dublin from other places in Ireland.

How vegan-friendly is it? It's not a vegan mecca like Berlin but we found that there was still quite a number of places to find vegan food in the city. We were able to find vegan food using Happy Cow and also by looking at menus of different restaurants we passed.

An Example of Vegan Food Available: 

Cornucopia: The food is delicious and healthy and the lunch special is reasonably priced as well. It included a choice of 3 salads, soup, bread and vegan pate for 8.95 euros. The garlic potatoes were the best.
Govinda's: Govindas is the restaurant that is run by the Hare Krishnas. They had a wide variety of vegan curries available as well as desserts. A plate of food piled pretty high is cheap at 9 euros. It fed both of us.
Saburritos: We accidentally found this place when searching for dinner. Mexican restaurants often have vegan options or have a vegetarian option that can be easily veganised. For this burrito, we removed the cheese and sour cream and added guacamole. They didn't charge extra for the guac and the burrito was fantastic. Unfortunately, the options here are very limited, but they were open late.

For more vegan options in Dublin check out Happy Cow which has a comprehensive list of vegan, vegetarian and veg-friendly places to eat. Happy Cow states that Dublin has 6 fully vegan and 8 vegetarian places. 

Sight-Seeing Some of the popular tourist stops in Dublin include: Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery Bow St., Temple Bar, Dublin Castle and Ha'penny Bridge.

Where to stay: We stayed at the Hazelbrook House on Gardiner Street which we found to be reasonably priced for Dublin. It seems like it is quite an expensive city to stay in but you can stay during the week to save money as it gets much more expensive on the weekend.
