Irish Vegans!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERABronwyn Slater set up the Cork Vegans Group about 2 years ago. The group has been very busy listing all the great vegan places to eat out in Ireland. You can find out more on their facebook page and their facebook group.

Bronwyn says: “I was to set up the group was the fact that I had been vegan for over a year and did not know any other vegans in Cork. The group had a number of meetups at local restaurants which had vegan options on the menu. I’m much more interested in the outreach aspect of veganism – getting the message out to people – so we’ve done a few stalls in the city centre where we handed out leaflets and a couple of vegan bakesales.”

Heading to Ireland? – take a look at places you can eat out here. Dublin has 2 vegan restaurants and a few vegetarian. Cork has 1 vegan restaurant and 3 vegetarian.

Vegan Travel

Two handy guides that I have used are the vegan passport and Alex Bourkes Vegetarian Europe guide.

Heyford Vegan Bed and Breakfast (Oxford)

heyford“Twenty-five years ago I became vegetarian for humanitarian reasons.  I became increasingly aware not only of the cruel practices in the food industry, but of the environmental impact of a largely carnivorous diet, and how this is not sustainable in the future. There is increasing evidence too of the health benefits of eating a plant-based diet.  I became Vegan five years ago in the strong belief that it is the most sustainable and ecologically-sound way of living which impacts on all aspects of my life, not just diet.

H&F field poppies 1I am really fortunate to have moved to a lovely village and as I have some rooms to spare, I felt I would like to share my good fortune with others.  As resources for Vegans are far and few between and I am passionate about promoting all things Vegan, I decided to start up my bed and breakfast and delight in providing a good, wholesome breakfast for my guests.”
