New venue for Happy Food!
Happy Food situated within YogaHub yoga studio is an all vegan cafe that is worth seeking out. They are since September on its brand new second location in Castleknock, providing the same delciious plant based meals we all love! The new cafe is right on the M50, just off Junction 6.

Vegan tastiness at Serendipity Cafe!
Serendipity café opened up inside the Phibsboro Livingi Club earlier this year. They have a delicious vegan, alkaline and gluten-free menu full of salads, soups, treats and a mouth-watering vegan burger. It is guilt-free delicious meals, a win-win!

Vegus Juices Delicious, raw, healthy and with a conscience. They sell a range of ready-to-drink raw, cold-pressed juice that are never heated, never frozen with a 6 month shelf life (no fridge needed). We particularly recommend their newest addition: 100% raw Broccoli + Beetroot juice, health and taste in one!
Turmerlicious is an instant, soothing turmeric latte made from a delicate blend of coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, a hint of black pepper, and coconut blossom nectar. Based on the age old Indian “Golden Milk” or “haldi milk” this is a modern & easy take on the turmeric latte.
Soft Drinks with a Twist!
King of Kefir Natural full flavoured, low calorie soft drinks, teeming with microbiome friendly cultures from water kefir. Made in small batches in the Chocolate Factory in the heart of Dublin. They have achieved the low sugars in their soft drinks by using the natural sweetener Stevia.

How much do you want it?
The Chocobox is full of delicious raw chocolate. The box itself is beautifully handcrafted and is nailed shut. Nailed shut you say? So how do you get at the lovely chocolate? Well, this is all part of the experience. Your giftee is going to have to figure that one out for themselves. No true chocoholic would let that stop
A Right Shower
This knacky invention is a showerhead that is designed to purify your water, increase flow and looks really stylish to
boot. The sciency bit is something to do with a three level filtering system that makes the water better for your hair and skin. It certainly looks really great and would make a perfect gift for anyone who fancies healthier skin and alkaline water to shower in.
Eoin Scolard’s new book, The Possibility Exists, is about one man’s search for freedom. This quest is something to which we can all relate. After several life changing experiences, Eoin began asking himself some serious questions about the way he was living his life. The book is his answer to those questions. His answers are illuminating for us all.
The Skin We Live In
What we like about Urban Veda skin care products isn’t just that they’re not tested on animals and they respect the planet with sustainable manufacturing. No, what’s really cool is that they are based on Ayurvedic principles that are tailored to your specific skin type.
In the best possible taste
Sarah’s Raw Bites are squares of deliciousness that can be found in shops and online. Born in Ireland but raised in Zimbabwe, Sarah returned to Cork to begin her apprenticeship as a chef as she had always loved cooking. While working for Avoca in Malahide Castle, she discovered that people really loved her treats. We think you’ll love them too.
You can read what our vegan restaurant reviewers, Veghuns, have to say about Happy Food in our Short & Sweet section inside. But we like this place so much, we thought we’d give it another mention. Is the Camden Street area becoming a vegan quarter?
Cornering the Market
Ex-Cornucopia and Happy Pear chef Phil Smith set up Shoots and Roots after browsing the many Dublin food markets and knew he could offer something more interesting. His vibrant and nutritious salads, pies, burgers, pastries, tarts and desserts are good for you and the environment.
Things to do, places to be
Our Buddha Bag has gone into its chrysalis and emerged as the butterfly that is Positive Nights. Hosted in The Powerscourt Townhouse Centre we’ve already had The Happy Pear, Teal Swan and many others. We have also had a blast with other offshoot events including the intuitive supper club, a night of insights, fun and vegan food with your host, the inimitable Paul Buggle. Be part of it.
Go Wild This Winter
Wilderness Lodge in Glenmalure is the perfect place to run your next workshop or just simply take a retreat for the new year. In the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, it’s the ideal getaway for walkers, campers, writers, or anyone
who appreciates the beauty of nature. Check out their gorgeous self-catering accommodation.
The Concert of the Year
Next year’s Conscious Concert is shaping up to be the best one so far. No doubt the tickets for the event on March 25th in the RDS will fly out the door. There’ll be music, talks and happenings. I’m really looking forward to seeing comedian JP Sears whose satire pokes gentle fun at all of our wellness enthusiasms. Another magnificent event not to be missed.
All We Need Is Love is a community space in Dublin 1. It is a free space, a dream maker that everyone can be a part of. They tell us, “we’re hoping to start a movement where everyone is free to follow a path based in their passions for creativity, a movement where everything make sense, where the truth is transparent and free of the illusion of fear.” Sounds good to us.
The Great Escape
The Elbowroom in Stoneybatter has long been a favourite haven for holistic events in the city. They have now opened The Elbowroom Escape, a holistic centre only an hour’s drive from Dublin where practitioners can host retreats in beautiful environs and have the resources such as great food and all the therapeutic knowhow of the Elbowroom team.
Healthy new year
A Komplex Solution
We don’t always get the nutrient-rich food our bodies need to stay healthy. But nutrition isn’t just about vitamins. Research shows that people are often deficient in necessary phytochemicals too. Dr. Wolz’s Vitalkomplex addresses that deficiency. Our bodies can need a little boost in winter and we think this is a great place to start.
Recovery From Eating Disorders
Caoimhe Harrison, battled with issues related to food before becoming a Master Practitioner for Eating Disorders & All Food, Body and Weight Issues with the British Psychological Society. Taking advantage of her personal recovery and her years of training she offers one-to-one sessions, workshops, in-house and online programmes to those who struggle with their eating habits. Help is at hand.
A New Career in Healing
Train to become a craniosacral therapist with an internationally accredited course given by Body Intelligence. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the interconnectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. The 50-day practitioner course starts in March.
