Food trucks and coffee carts are having a moment – here are 16 of the best
31st Jul 2021
Did someone say road trip? Better add these food trucks to your Irish bucket list.
The sun may have gone into hibernation for a little while but the summer is far from over – there’s still one whole month of adventuring left, lest you forget.
A beach day probably isn’t the wisest choice when the heavens are liable to open at any given moment, so take cover in the car and head for one of these food trucks instead. Not only will your belly be full and happy, but it will give you a reason to go explore a new part of the country too. Planning a trip around what you’re going to eat is the key to any good holiday, don’t ya know?

Pronounced may-den, you’ll find this “feel-good food truck” pitched in a field just down the road from the Giant’s Causeway.
Julia’s Lobster Truck, Co Clare
To be spotted at various locations across Co Clare, Julia’s Lobster Truck are masters of seafood with their fresh barbecued lobster a must when visiting.

The resident food truck outside the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery, Craft West Cork serves up a Spanish-inspired menu created by chefs Alexandre Petit and Shane Deane.

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.

If they’re not at the Gap of Dunloe, you’ll find them at Ross Road in Killarney. Known to attract large queues, their food is definitely worth the wait so be patient.
