Fabulous Vegan food. A healthy food haven on the Dingle Peninsula. Small, quaint dining room so arrive early.

Their signature salad is amazing! Full of tasty, healthy ingredients and easily made vegan. The juices and smoothies are excellent too. My only criticisms would be the bathroom, which is very old school (like a family bathroom) and felt grotty. The service could be friendlier too. This wouldn't stop me returning though as I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.

My husband, 2 kids and I visited this restaurant in Dingle last week on our holiday. We loved their garden salad, what a plate of amazing food for such a reasonable price. Their staff were so helpful and could not do enough for us as we enjoyed our lunch and fed two small kids. The only pity was we didn't... More

Cul Gairdin is mainly vegetarian, but its reader board menu caught my wife's eye so we gave it a try. The restaurant is very small and quite crowded when full. You are almost sitting elbow to elbow. It takes a while to get your food once you order. We waited about 15 minutes for our three orders. The food itself... More

Had the apple and cinnamon crepe! It was the thinnest and best crepe I have ever had! The special crepe is savory and my wife had that and it was a nice portion and the crepe looks massive but is very thin so it's not as filling as you would think! Great place for breakfast!

So you might be wondering why a guy who was raised on moose meat and salmon would go to a place that serves quiniao ( I don't even know how to spell that stuff). Well my darling bride has a food allergy and this place appeared to be a place she could enjoy a wonderful meal without having to ask... More

Recommended by our B&B, our lunch here has been the best food we've eaten in Ireland. The absolute freshest ingredients are used to make the salads, crepes, soups and specials. Not vegans even, but couldn't have asked for better! To top it off, the Apple rhubarb crumble we shared with our tea was to die for! Sweet by its very... More

This restaurant was a blessing for a vegan who had been traveling around for a few days and was craving some healthy food. They had smoothies and quite a few vegan options. I ordered the main salad and was blown away by what I was served! It was a huge plate beautifully arranged with over 7 different kinds of cold... More
