Kiss The Blarney Stone and Grab Your Vegan Snacks. Being a Vegan in Ireland
A Vegan in Ireland
well known for its black pudding, that is a hardened blood sausage is turning its back on the meat-heavy dishes it normally serves up and growing in vegan numbers. A grassroots community named ‘Vegan in Ireland’ is starting to gain traction.
Irishman Scott Renwick, who founded the Vegan in Ireland community, and his wife, who originally hails from Tel Aviv help the vegan community, by hosting workshops and vegan dining experiences in Dublin. They also organize vacations across the Irish Isle for vegan travelers.

Speaking about the vegan scene in Dublin, Sivan told the Irish Times “In the past few years, so much has been going on here. We try to surprise our guests.” From battered sausage and cheesy chips to Irish cream liqueur and afternoon tea, the vegan scene has plenty to offer in the city according to the pair, who have been organizing vegan tours around Dublin for 15 months.
And it’s not just vegan customers who the tours appeal to, either.“We get a lot of non-vegans on the tours,” explained Sivan. “People are really curious about what vegans eat, apart from salad.”
The couple offer walking tours, that last around four hours, to a few of the hot spots throughout the capital. From their website, aptly named A vegan in Ireland “Join us on the Vegan Dublin Food Tour for a special, one of a kind culinary adventure! Sample a variety of delicious plant-based foods at some of Dublin’s most exciting dining venues”, the tours cost as little as sixty-nine euro per person and includes all your main courses, desserts and drinks a person could want.
If you find yourself heading to the green hills of Ireland anytime soon, they are worth checking out, and booking on a trip or two of their well-traveled vegan establishments. Book on their website Vegan in Ireland
