Coeliac Disease and the Gluten Free diet are now well known across the island of Ireland and before the Covid-19 pandemic we had a detailed list of eating places across the island where local and visiting Coeliacs could eat safely.

However, because of the pandemic, the hospitality industry across the island has been severely disrupted and we are now not sure who is still operating or who is still offering gluten free options.

Places do exist and to try and assist travellers, we have asked our social media followers to let us know of Coeliac friendly places where they have eaten or stayed recently by sharing them on our Facebook page: Gluten Free Ireland Group page.

Another useful source of GF eating places in UK and Ireland is the Find Me Gluten Free app. Well worth downloading to a Smartphone!

Remember, always include details of your gluten free requirements when making a booking to ensure the kitchen and house staff are fully aware of your needs.

For those of you self-catering, many shops and supermarkets now carry a range of Gluten Free food so be sure to ask staff for help if you can’t find the “Free From” section.

We also have a downloadable guide, available for free when you subscribe to our mailing list. To get your guide, enter your details here:

On the positive side, you can choose from a great range of holidays from spectacular views of the County Antrim Coast, winding drives along the Ring of Kerry, live music in the pubs of Dublin or even a Game of Thrones Location tour.

We also have the annual St. Patrick’s day festival in Dublin (17th March annually) plus St. Patrick’s Way, an historical route around Northern Ireland discovering the locations St. Patrick visited and stayed.
