Why join The Vegetarian Society of Ireland?
Join us
Would you like to:

  • Avail of discounts in participating restaurants and shops?
  • Meet with other vegetarians and vegans?
  • Get some very tasty vegetarian and vegan recipes?
  • Hear about events for vegetarian and vegan people in your area?
  • Have some fun?

We run a discount scheme for our members in association with a number of shops, restaurants, accommodation and other service providers. Discount scheme members include Cornucopia, Govinda’s (Aungier St), Umi Falafel, The Happy Pear and the Quay Co-op (Cork City shop); all details may be found on our website here.

We run a social Meetup group. This is a group of people who meet up a few times a month, and enjoy an activity together, usually a nice meal in restaurant. While most Meetups are held in Dublin, we also have events in other locations around the country and members get to enjoy a tasty meal and some good fun too. The group has even successfully got some people together with the loves of their lives. If you would like to learn more, events are organised online here.

We also produce an e-newsletter which we email to our members and supporters.

We have a small, hard-working group of committee members and core volunteers and receive assistance from addition volunteers for various projects to promote vegetarianism in Ireland.

We are always very happy to welcome new members so join today!
