After two weeks in Ireland, we were ready for our next destination: The Netherlands. We woke up early, said goodbye to Dublin, and headed to the airport. Before taking off, we made sure to have a look around and see what vegan options were available.
Before our visit to Ireland, friends and family kept insisting we rent a car and drive along the coast. We didn’t rent a car, but managed to make our way west by taking the bus and hitch hiking. We were excited to visit the Dingle Peninsula, located in County Kerry, knowing we’d be treated to some beautiful views and landscapes. We weren’t sure what to expect for vegan food options but found there were more than enough choices to keep us happy.
Normally, I leave the blog writing to Jill, but visiting Google in Dublin was something I couldn’t pass up writing about. A few years ago, I had a chance to visit the campus in San Francisco. When our Couch Surfing host invited us to see where he worked and to indulge at Google’s free, all you can eat cafeteria, I knew we were in for a treat.
If you’re in Dublin, Ireland on a weekend, you’re bound to run into a food market. One Saturday afternoon, we went on a long walk around the city, stopping in at the Temple Bar Food Market and Dublin Food Co-op to see what vegan eats we could find.
Before visiting Dublin, Ireland, I asked several people for restaurant recommendations and kept hearing the same thing again, and again: “You have to eat at Cornucopia.” Dublin has a few vegetarian restaurants, none are 100% vegan, but this one stood out to most locals and recent visitors as being the best of the bunch. On one of our first days in the city, we headed there for lunch and met up with Glauce from the All About (Vegan) Food blog.
