Braving Veganuary this year?

Just a few short years ago, the prospect of embarking on a meat and dairy free month in Dublin may have seemed bleak - there's only so many lentils one person can have.

These days however, things are looking up for those living a plant based lifestyle in the city. With the introduction of Vegan Sandwich Co and other dedicated meat free spots, you can enjoy a dirty burger, kebab or whatever you're having yourself without needing to break your January resolution.

Looking for some places to get a hearty, fast food-esque feed while also keeping it plant based? We've got you covered.

Vegan Sandwich Co

Maybe an obvious first stop, but with good reason. You won't feel like you've had to give anything up with VSC's impressive array of mozzarella sticks, chickxn fillet rolls, sloppy joes and sweet treats.

Find Vegan Sandwich Co in Smithfield, Dublin 7. For more information, see their Instagram.


V-Face released Mac the Lad, their vegan take on the Big Mac in late '21, changing the plant based burger game in Dublin for good. They've also got you covered with loaded fries, cookie sambos and cauli wings to beat the band.

Di Fontaines

A post-night out slice from Di Fontaines is a rite of passage for all Dubliners. Their vegan slice hits all the right spots and don't worry, they've a vegan garlic dip to go with it too.

McGuinness's of Camden Street

This combo meal has seen me through many a rough night. Battered sausage, nuggets and onion rings, all plant based, all serving you the salty/vinegary fix only your favourite chipper can provide. McGuinness's is Dublin's OG vegan fast food haven.

BBQ wings, pulled pork and garlic cheese fries, all without a trace of meat in sight. These guys make being vegan a doddle.
