My Favourite Places for Green Juices and Smoothies in Dublin
I love a good green juice and smoothie. They are a great way of packing even more nutrients into my body and can be a great snack or addition to my breakfast or lunch.
Lucky for me there are so many choices to pick up these green drinks around Dublin now. While the following list isn’t a definitive guide to places to get green juices and smoothies in Dublin (there are new places popping up all the time) these are places I go to regularly enough and like.
The Punnet (1)
Now in three locations, I regularly go to their store in Glasthule in South Country Dublin and Mount Street in the city centre. I like their menu and that they can make up the juice / smoothie there or you can get pre-made bottles to go. I usually like getting mine made up as I like them as fresh as possible and I also usually swap some ingredients due to intolerances. Their Green Glasthule juice is my favourite.
This was the first place in Dublin that was on my radar that did fresh green juices. I used to travel across the city at the weekend to climb Killiney Hill and grab a juice afterwards! Their juices and smoothies are made fresh and their menu is extensive. I usually have their Auntie Cancer Queen Juice which is choc-a-bloc full of veggies! It may not be one for a juicing beginner but you’d probably get your days worth of veg in one drink!
Just beside O’Connell Bridge in the city centre you couldn’t get more central. While from the outside it looks like it’s an ice-cream / sweet parlour, their menu of juices, smoothies, salads, paleo treats and frozen yogurts make it a healthy stop when you are doing a bit of shopping in the city. They do a great matcha latte too!
Alchemy, BT2 (4)
Upstairs in BT2 you can get fresh juices / smoothies made up or bottled to take away. I always love getting a seat beside the window so I can look down at the shoppers on Grafton Street below. Great people watching and great healthy options.
Just south of the city centre Urban Health has a great selection of pre-made juices and smoothies if you don’t want to wait to get one made up fresh.
Also in Ranelagh you can find Green Beards, a cold pressed juice bar which offers raw beverages hand crafted with deep regard for organic growing practices, seasonal harvests, local suppliers and recyclable materials. They branched out this year and opened a pop-up store on Baggot Street just a stone’s throw from St. Stephen’s Green. Their juices can be found in two of my favourite eateries too – Cocu and Eathos on Baggot Street amongst others.
Sprout & Co juices are cold pressed and they work with the seasons, sourcing as many of their ingredients as possible in Ireland. There are plenty of Avoca’s around Dublin (city centre, Rathcoole, Kilmacanogue and Monkstown). My favourite juices are their Super Green Juice and Mojito juice blend. They also supply other locations with their juices including the Barlottie eateries.
A great place to pick up a fresh juice / smoothie and salad after a walk on Dollymount Beach or along the Clontarf boardwalk. It’s very popular so the queues can be extensive at busy times but it’s usually worth the wait!
