Eating Gluten Free in Ireland

 After checking in at the Adare Country House, we walked 
to the main street of Adare in search of a place for lunch and a cup of tea.
We passed several restaurants and a large group of wedding
guests walking from the Dunraven Arms Hotel to the Trinitarian Abbey
on Main Street.  Many of the ladies were wearing fascinators.
I love seeing wedding parties in different countries, but I didn't take photos.
We enjoyed lunch at The Good Room Adare Cafe.
This was my first experience of ordering gluten free from the menu.
I did a lot of research in preparation of the trip. 
 I found Gluten Free Ireland to be very helpful.

Every pub, café, hotel and the B and B we visited  throughout our visit in Ireland
was very knowledgeable and accommodating for many different food allergies.

Below:  Coffee Cake (coffee flavored and different from American coffee cake)
Our lunch included several cups of Bewley's Irish Tea. 
To my tea loving friends: the tea bags or tea leaves were left in the teapot
every place we had tea.

Since the Irish and Brits like their tea strong enough to 'trot a mouse across' I'm not surprised they didn't decant the teapot. They've been drinking it that way for centuries, so why change now. ;-) Your gluten free meal looked delicious.

How nice that you could find gluten free food. Did you remove the teabags when they had steeped long enough? I don't mind them leaving it if I can remove and have a little dish to put it in.

Tea bags and tea leaves left in the pot. Hmm. Am pleasantly surprised to learn you didn't have trouble finding GF options abroad. I had wondered if that was mainly an American trend, but apparently not, and oh my, the foods look quite delicious!

I am so glad you were able to eat gluten free with no worries in Ireland!
