Best meal in Ireland!

Its been two years since our trip to Dingle, and my husband and I still talk about the food here. We just came back from Ireland and our only regret was not heading back to Dingle and eating here!

I recently visited this cafe for lunch. It has a great range of healthy food: salads, soups and juices. It's not always easy to find healthy options when travelling and I was delighted to discover this cafe. It's also a gallery and has a great range of cakes

We wanted to sample a vegetarian restaurant, and visited this place based on TA reviews. Very good choice -- the restaurant served excellent food, had great variety, and prices were reasonable.

The little cafe and garden is warm and cozy. They had a chalk board with specials and seasonal menus. We had the best homemade bread and butter, soup and dessert in all our travels! The servers were friendly and helpful and gave us great information about music in Dingle. The chocolate pear torte was unforgettable!

Neat little place tucked in the back. Nice to sneak out of the hustle and bustle. Spent some time in their green garden in the back while sipping juice and a bowl of soup. There is no WiFi there.

My wife and I found this placed based on Tripadvisors ratings for vegetarian restaurants in Dingle. It is away from the "tourist" hole that has become downtown Dingle. If you want a tasty meal that is peaceful, this is where you need to be. I had a crepe with nutella and it was phenomenal!

Being a vegetarian in Ireland is challenging. I had a difficult time finding food anywhere (and was heartily sick of potatoes by the month's end.) The best meal I had during my trip, by far, was at Cul Gairdin. Even my meat-eating companions were absolutely thrilled with the food there. It was plentiful, fresh, and bursting with flavor. I ordered... More

Being 3 vegetarians this restaurant was an amazing find in amongst all the seafood pubs and restaurants in Dingle. We ordered the gorgeous Thai Green Vegetable curry but were spoilt for choice. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and offered their opinion when we were struggling to choose what to have. We also found the price was very reasonable... More

We were tirelessly looking for somewhere to have lunch and fancied pancakes and this place was a great find. Having been in Thialand and Asia, this place with the smell of cooking brought the memories of our trip flooding back. With our 2 children we sat in the covered patio area and enjoyed the warmth of the sunshine and the... More

Sometimes it's the people who make the real difference in a meal. Cul Gairdin is one of those places. We stopped in for a coffee and snack and wound up staying for a delicious lunch. Whilst there we chatted with the owner, who invited us to a concert he was performing in that night. All part of a memorable visit... More
