Either way, Cork is a beautiful city to explore and if you are looking for some food options but are worried that it may be lacking it vegan options fear not. There’s simply no need to worry, as we have seven of the tastiest vegan restaurants in Cork.

Paradiso

This restaurant has attracted attention internationally throughout the years with its renowned vegetable cuisine prepared by chef Denis Cotter, founder and executive chef. The chef focuses on rich, complex flavours with seasonal ingredients. So nice we had to mention Paradiso twice, just last year we gave the guys a shout as one of the Best Restaurants for Clean Eating in Cork.
