October 19, 2017 (2 Comments) by Zuzanna Piasek

Veganism has seen a massive popularity spurt over the last few years in Ireland, but with this extra attention has also come much criticism. People tend to think it’s too dull and that there isn’t much to choose from but I’m here to prove that they are wrong. As a vegan, I have discovered that not only does veganism expand your appreciation for different flavours but it is also perfect around fall and winter time.

The roasted vegetables and hearty soups keep you warm and full. So even if you aren’t a vegan, try one of these seven tasty vegan restaurants in Dublin, you won’t be disappointed!

The Happy Pear – Clondalkin

So if you haven’t already heard of the Happy Pear, I highly recommend you check it out. The place was set up by two twin brothers who have written cookbooks and set up restaurants all for the good cause of promoting healthy eating. They have one restaurant in Greystones and another in Clondalkin which is brand new. Their food is incredibly delicious and cheap. You can get a really filling lunch or dinner for just €10. They serve for vegetarians and vegans. The staff are friendly and the design of the restaurant gives a cosy and enjoyable atmosphere to chat away in. If you end up making your way out to the Greystones restaurant you can also enjoy a day at the beach afterwards.
