I blogged about this a number of years ago and still get many emails, particularly from tourists, thanking me for making their trip to Dublin a little easier in terms of eating gluten free. With that in mind I’ve updated the listing as some places had closed and even increased it, I do aim to please!

Luckily it keeps getting easier and easier to eat out gluten free so this wasn’t much of a challenge and I’m happy to say a lot of my old favourites are still on there, as well as some newbies.

So, whether you’re in the city for a bit of shopping or seeking something to tasty to brighten up your work day, here’s a listing of some of my favourites.


Gluten free fish and chips as well as onion rings, chicken goujons – so so good  – their garlic dip is also delish. Multiple locations, eat in or take away.


ITSA is an awesome lunch spot, not only for gluten free diets but for allergen friendly food in general.  You’ll get GF soups and bagels as well as great coffee and cakes . There are multiple branches and you can eat in or takeaway.


Situated on Dame Street, Millstone has one of the best set ups for gluten free in the city, they have a separate gluten free menu for lunch and dinner with sandwiches, pizzas…you name it.


Milano do a great GF pizza base as well as a good variety of other options throughout the menu. They even launched their famous dough balls in a gluten free option last year although I’ve yet to sample them. I love their mini GF dessert and Coffee combos. There are multiple locations and you can also takeaway if you want. If you just want pizza to take away, I’d recommend Credo on Montague St for their GF pizza also.


Lemon do buckwheat crepes which means they are suitable for coeliacs. However, they are cooked in an extremely gluteneous environment so please eat at your own risk.  Personally, I have eaten many crepes from Lemon with no ill effects but I do think you need to bear in mind that they can’t make any promises. Two locations in the city centre on Dawson and South William Street. Eat in or take away.


There seems to be a burrito place on every corner in Dublin these days but Boojum and Little Ass Burrito are my favourites and both have gluten free options clearly marked on menus. You can eat in our take away and both of multiple locations.

Kilkenny cafe

Located on Nassau street, the cafe in the Kilkenny shop always have gluten free options clearly marked and offer really good value for money. Eat in.


Similar to the mexican vibe, Neon of Camden Street is one of the many Thai options for gluten free diners around the city. It’s my favourite and does an amazing lunch deal for a tenner which includes a drink. Other good options which are more eat in are KOH on Jervis Street, Red Torch Ginger on St Andrews Street or Saba on Clarendon Street. All clearly mark gluten free options and have good lunch deals.


I’ve already blogged the bejaysus out of this place here. Amazing gluten free burgers and chips – enough said. Be prepared to queue to get in.


A salad bar with multiple locations throughout the city, it does what it says on the tin – all their dressings are gluten free so just put a bowl together and bobs your uncle. Takeaway only in most outlets.

O’Briens Sandwich Cafes

Serve sandwiches and bagels from the Bfree range. They do have guidelines with regard to cross contamination however, similar to Lemon, cannot give any guarantees. I think as long as you ask the right questions and be vigilant you’ll be fine. I’ve never been glutened here. Eat in or takeaway.

My focus here has been for lunch on the move in the city and I’ve blogged about my favourite gluten free dining experiences in Dublin overall in a separate post. Any suggestions or thoughts are more than welcome.
