We had a weekend in Dublin to see Black Star Riders play, and so had a couple of days to sample some Irish delights.

On the Friday, it was a bit late by the time we got to our hotel, so we asked reception to recommend somewhere to eat. They said that Murrays was a good place for food, drink, and music, so we decided to go with their recommendation. It was good to see that on Murrays website they actually state that they can cater for vegan diets, and we were very happy to see a superfood salad and sweet potato fries on the menu. Although very busy, services was still friendly and efficient, and the food good. If you wasn't a break from the live Irish music, venture out the back after your meal and discover some live rock and punk at Fibbers bar!


If you are in Dublin, you really must visit Cornucopia!
We visited for breakfast. You queue up and can choose from a menu, or go for the breakfast deal where you select 5 hot items, plus toast and a hot drink for around 9 Euros. I selected vegan sausages, scrambled tofu, chilli mushrooms and  roasted tomatoes, and my plate was already full enough for me, so I passed on a fifth item!
It was delicious!

We visted again the next day for brunch. You can select a meal item with two salads. The potato salad with garlic and cashew nuts is amazing, but very very filling.

We were going to call in for an evening meal, but the queue was massive so we gave it a miss. We had a wander around and stumbled upon a Mexican retaurant where we sampled their veggie fajitos without cream and cheese, always a good fall back option. Unfortunately as by this time it was late, I can't for the life of me remember the name of the retaurant!!!
