Hi folks! I'm going to be studying in Dublin for a month in July for my graduate program and I'm in the process of doing all the paperwork. The school has a meal plan offering, but I'm still figuring out what special diets are accommodated if at all. I don't know Dublin or what's around the school where the program will be taking place.

It's happening at Dublin City University. Anyone familiar with that area? Will I be well-served by local restaurants and shops if I opt out of the meal plan?

Hey there!

I am at DCU too although only part time. There is not too much in the area (infact probably nothing within walking distance) but it is well served by buses into town and there are supermarkets nearby. We also have a chain of HFS`s called Nourish where you can pick up all the usual stuff. You can get soya milk and spread here like in the UK no bother. I would also advocate a visit to dublin food co-op which is great for a Saturday mooch around to buy your weekly shop and have a coffee too! Just google it for info.

There is a veggie/vegan board on boards.ie and also a DCU forum you can ask questions (its under the heading edu and the v/v one can be found under the food tab).

Hope that helps!

Thanks! Our meals will be served in something called the 1838 club. Have you ever seen anything vegan in that dining hall? Bummer that there's nothing around. It says there are restaurants in the area, but I guess you're saying they aren't veggie friendly?

Mmmmmmhash browns....
There are a couple of awesome veggie/vegan friendly restaurants in the city centre, but you have to have a rummage. Lots of places are more aware these days though - you can even get vegan sushi in YoSushi.

I usually bring lunch to college, as it's the only way that I'm guaranteed something that's good to eat (other than a side salad and dry bread) and isn't covered in mayo (caged hen eggs and all. *vom*) Will your accom be self catering?

The co-op is great though. Opens in a smaller form on Thursdays as well in case you run out of any basics.
