Location and contact

Holohan's is a family owned Irish restaurant situated on University Road just a stones throw from the Queens University. Holohan's Pantry is located in an old listed building oozing charm and ambience, a mixture of old style surroundings in a bright and welcoming setting. Like its sister restaurant, the hugely successfully 'Holohans at the Barge,' the Pantry offers the same unique dining experience, based around great Irish produce, recipes and warm, genuine Irish hospitality. Using classic recipes, updated with modern cooking techniques and some of the best local ingredients, the chefs at Holohan's produce food that is both nostalgic and contemporary. There is also a real focus on locally sourced

I had a Vegetarian Boxty myself and it was absolutely delicious. Not sure about Vegan options but I would definitely call the restaurant and ask. They are very friendly and helpful.
