There’s no reason you shouldn’t enjoy eating out on a gluten-free diet. The Society keeps a list of places where members have enjoyed their experience called the ‘Coeliac Friendly Restaurant List’ which is available to members.
Bear in mind that these restaurants have not been vetted by the Coeliac Society of Ireland and no responsibility can be assumed by the society for dishes incorrectly served as gluten-free. Learn how to explain your needs when you eat out.
Even if the restaurant appears to be catering well to the gluten-free diet always ask the serving staff to inform the kitchen and double check with them about your food.
Gluten-free products available from some of the fast food outlets in Ireland are listed in the Food List.
Remember that food outlets are businesses and will only provide gluten-free options as long as customers choose them. Encourage your friends and family to order the gluten-free options too.
