Being vegetarian or vegan can be really challenging when you go out.
Dublin is one of the best towns for veggies & vegans.
You will always have a least a vegetarian option and the staff is usually open to turn the meal into a vegan/vegetarian one. Either you live in Dublin or you plan to visit it for a few days, I hope this post will help you to discover a new restaurant in this beautiful city.
Brother Hubbard North I love going there for brunch or after lunch because I always make room for a dessert. Everything is delicious so you might need to go back there a few times but I warn you, the coffee is pretty strong. A friend of mine uses to say it can wake the dead! If coffee is not your thing or it is cold outside, I would advise their hot chocolate, the best I ever had. You can order one with plant-based milk of course.

EatGreek I stumbled upon this restaurant with a friend in 2017. It was my first time in a Greek restaurant so I chose a vegetarian moussaka because I did not know what to order, even though I am not a fan. It was so good that I did not know it could be possible for a moussaka. It seems this meal is not on the menu anymore, too bad.
Options: Vegetarian. My favourite: Vegetarian pita. Website: http://www.eatgreek.ie Where: 19 Prospect Road, Glasnevin. Dublin 9.
Govinda Probably the most famous vegetarian restaurant in Dublin. Usually, you have 2 options: the vegan dish of the day or the vegetarian. Then you choose the size of your plate but the small portion (around 7 euros) is more than enough. Add a bit of salad and here you go!
Options: Vegetarian / Vegan. My favourite: The dish of the day. Website: http://govindas.ie Where: 83 Middle Abbey St, Dublin 1 | 4 Aungier Street, Dublin 2.
Jo’burger Town Jo has a few restaurants in Dublin now but my favourite was the one in Rathmines. According to the website, this venue is now called Hey Donna. As I don’t know what is on their menu, I would advise to go to the restaurant in Dublin 2 to get a nice burger.
Options: Vegetarian/ Vegan. My favourite: The Pimvill burger with the chickpea patty. Website: http://www.joburger.ie/joburgertown Where: 4/5 Castle Market. Dublin 2.
Kimchi Located on Parnell Street, this restaurant offers Korean fusion food. I love going there as the staff is super friendly, the kimchi is vegan and they also have craft beers. On top of it, you can go to the pub part after your dinner.
Options: Vegetarian / Vegan / Gluten-free. My favourite: Bibimbap with Tofu. Website: http://kimchihophouse.ie Where: 160-161 Parnell Street. Dublin 1
Serendipity Vegan Cafe Want an affordable but really good vegan burger? Serendipity is the place! The main ingredient in the burger is kale and they can say they do the best vegan burger in town indeed. This Vegan cafe also have salads, soups and treats. All ingredients are organic.
Options: Vegan. My favourite: The vegan burger of course. Comes on sourdough bread as well. Website: www.clublivingi.com | https://www.instagram.com/serendipity_vegan_cafe/ Where: Units 2&3, Crossguns Business Park, Royal Canal Bank, Phibsboro. Dublin 7.
Skinflint This restaurant also belongs to Jo but I enjoy going there for a nice pizza with a craft beer. They used to be on Crane Lane but are now on Dame St, instead of Crackbird.
Options: Vegetarian/ Vegan. My favourite: the pizza called Valerie Website: http://www.joburger.ie/skinflint Where: 60 Dame Street, Dublin 2.
The House Howth is one of my favourite neighbourhood in Dublin with its harbour, nice walks and great food. I would love living there one day but...have you checked daft.ie recently, crazy isn’t it?! In the meantime, I enjoy The House’s brunch. When it is sunny, you can also eat on their terrace. They are located in the village nearby a wine store that I also recommend.
Options: Vegetarian. My favourite: Eggs Florentine. Website: http://www.thehouse-howth.ie Where: 4 Main Street. Howth. Co. Dublin
Vagya Restaurant This Nepalese-Indian restaurant used to be in Glasnevin. I’ve never been in their restaurant but I ordered take-away... so many times that once the delivery guy asked us if something went wrong with our last order because we did not call them for a while. Nothing was wrong, we just had a pizza period I guess. Anyway, I am sad because they are now in Castlenock and they don't deliver anymore. If you live in the area, I strongly recommend to go there! The food is delicious and the staff is very professional.
Options: Vegetarian / Gluten-free. My favourite: Aloo Matar Paneer. Website: http://www.vagyarestaurant.com Where: 1st floor, Roselawn Inn, Roselawn shopping centre. Castleknock. Dublin 15.
Yamamori Sushi The famous Japanese restaurant in Dublin. During winter, I often get a Tofu Ramen but the vegetarian Bento is always a safe bet. Sushis are great too.
Options: Vegetarian/ Vegan. My favourite: Tofu Ramen. Website: https://yamamori.ie/yamamori-sushi/ Where: 38-39 Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1.
I love discovering new places and already have a to-do list in mind. Indeed, it is planned to go to Token in Smithfield to try the vegan Hot dog, Sova Vegan Butcher in Portobello but also Pang. What are your favourite restaurants in Dublin?
