Vegan in Ireland: The Happy Pear

Come with me on a visit to The Happy Pear Natural Food Market in beautiful Wicklow, Ireland. 


Just a short tranquil train journey south of Dublin, on which you are completely memorized by the beautiful Irish coastline and ocean, is the quaint little village of Greystones. Take a short stroll up the charming main street to this adorable and romantic natural shop and cafe. Look at the photos and fall in love!

Everything from the atmosphere to the presentation to the service to the flavors of their food, is simply perfection.


Start out with their crisp elderflower Prosecco and get a taster board to sample their intensely flavorful tomato and coriander pestos and hummus. I had to have the delicious quinoa crusted vegan burger with house-made vegan mayonnaise that was to die for. Also sampled the very flavorful spanish roasted vegetable paella. They have an excellent selection of organic wines and craft beers and so many mouth-watering desserts that will send you right into foodie heaven. I sampled most (all?) of the chocolates and I am actually still craving them.


The Happy Pear offers a bright and friendly casual daytime cafe and a beautiful candlelit evening dining experience on the weekends. They have a popular shop full of their delicious goodies, fresh farm products, bakery items and desserts. In addition to all that, they also offer healthy eating courses and have a cookbook full of their amazing recipes. You can even order their products online! Anything from bulk goods to fresh fruit to bakery items to jams.

The Happy Pear was kind enough to host me; however, all opinions and taste buds are my own.
