Dublin is definitely getting more vegan friendly. You can get soya milk, vegan margerine etc in all supermarkets. Most shopping centres (in the suburbs will also have Holland and Barrett style health food shops). There are a couple of Chinese and Indian supermarkets for tofu and pulses. If you are working/living in the city centre you should go to Moore St market for your fresh fruit and veg. There is also a Chinese supermarket in Moore St. Eating out will be more of a problem. Other than a Hare Krishna cafe on Middle Abbey St and some Kebab shops that sell mediocre falafel you will struggle. Chips are always fried in vegetable oil, never in lard.

Good luck with the interview.

Dave, do you even live in Dublin?:D

There's an Indonesian place in Temple bar that will sort you out if you let them know in advance. There's a Vietnamese place too which is very good. Mexican place on George St South is no problem. Yamamori have 2 places - big one opposite the Mexican that specialises in noodle dishes, and a smaller one down by the Liffey that does nice sushi (which I prefer as it's quieter). There's Wagamama near the Stephen's Green shopping centre too. Juice, just up from the big Yamamori, is entirely vegetarian and does a lot of vegan stuff. Blazing Salads is great. Nice stall in the market off George St (near Dunnes) that has the best almond-stuffed green olives I've ever had, plus vegan pistachio nougat and Turkish delight. That's what I can remember from the 3 years my wife was living there, although I've probably forgotten a few.

I visit a couple of times a year, but I'm from the northside of the city. All the places you mentioned are on the southside. Northsiders very rarely travel across the divide into the southside.

It's a bit like Mostar. One city, but two communities that rarely mix...:wink:

Cheers for the tips though... :D

Cornucopia is a vegetarian restaurant with some good vegan options - its very central just off of Grafton street, Fresh in the Powerscourt SC near Grafton street, another popular veggie restaurant, is also good for soups, mains and desserts. There are plenty of health food stores with all the stuff - or most of the stuff anyway - that you can get in the UK. Good Luck with your interview, hope you get the job - Ireland could do with a few more vegans! :lol:

Don't think I got the job :( I'm totally stuck in this shit hole for a few more years. There is no way I am staying here after I hit 30, that gives me four years to save and escape, which incidently is 2012 the "next" Armageddon haha that would be sods law if it happens.

Wow - I wish I had consulted this before I went there. I was under the impression that Dublin had no vegans, and I lived on pb&j for a week straight.
