Food trucks and coffee carts are having a moment – here are 14 of the best

Food trucks and coffee carts are having a moment – here are 14 of the best

Did someone say road trip? Better add these food trucks to your Irish bucket list.

The sun may have gone into hibernation as if we’ve bid adieu to summer – but that doesn’t mean that the adventuring is over. In fact, far from it.

With still over one full month left before the back-to-school madness begins, now is as good a time as any to start planning a road trip… one revolving around the best food trucks to hit up across Ireland. Your belly will be full and happy and you’ll get to explore a new party of the country too. 

Mini Maegden, Bushmills, Co Antrim

Pronounced may-den, you’ll find this “feel-good food truck” in a makeshift courtyard officially known as The Sun-Trap, just down the road from the Giant’s Causeway.

food trucks

Julia’s Lobster Truck, Co Clare

To be spotted at various locations across Co Clare (when they’re not over in the UK at Latitude Festival, that is), Julia’s Lobster Truck are masters of seafood. Their fresh barbecued lobster is a must when visiting. 

food trucks

Killybegs Seafood Shack, Killybegs, Co Donegal

They may have a small menu, but it definitely packs a punch and you can’t get fresher than fish battered to order every time. 

food trucks

The Hatch, Newcastle, Co Down

An award-winning street food truck in Co Down, The Hatch has been named the best in Ireland on more than one occasion. And yes, they have both meat and veggie options.

food trucks

The Salty Buoy, Co Dublin

Another seafood truck on the list, The Salty Buoy can be found at various locations across Dublin (and Wicklow) depending on the day. 

food trucks

Misunderstood Heron, Leenaun, Co Galway

If it’s food with a view you’re after, Misunderstood Heron should be top of the list. Perched along the Killary Fjord in Connemara, theirs are hard-topped in fairness. 

food trucks

The Hungry Donkey, Co Kerry

Find The Hungry Donkey at The Courtyard at Faha Court in Killarney. Known to attract large queues, their food is definitely worth the wait, so be patient! 

food trucks

Original Food Junkie, Co Kildare

A vintage Citroen Hy1966 that houses a wood-fired pizza oven inside, the Original Food Junkie serves up authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. 

food trucks

Wildwood Street Food Box, Carlingford, Co Louth

Bringing you “healthful wholefood”, Wildwood Café even caters to vegans with their summer sushi special a favourite in recent weeks. 

food trucks

The Fire Slice Food Truck, Castlebar, Co Mayo

French-style street food served up from a vintage food truck in Castlebar… we may not make it to Paris this summer but our cravings will still be satisfied.

food truck

Koha Street Kitchen, Co Sligo

Owned by New Zealander Sascha Viertel, Koha Street Kitchen has worked up quite a reputation amongst locals, and for good reason.

food trucks

Rívesci, Co Tipperary

Food truck turned award-winning condiment makers, you might recognise the name from your weekly supermarket sweep. 

food trucks

Unbeetable Food Truck, Co Waterford

Found in Tramore on the sunny southeast, Unbeetable just upgraded to a new larger unit – all the better to keep you fed and watered from. 

food trucks

The Saucy Cow, Bray, Co Wicklow

Joining the Wicklow food scene last summer, The Saucy Cow also just opened their first city-centre location in Temple Bar this year. The absolute best vegan burgers and waffle fries you’ll ever have, trust me.
