Even better, service here is personal and friendly. The knowledgeable staff give informed recommendations for food accompaniments.

Wicklow Wine Co. does more than wine, however. The shop stocks excellent Irish cheeses, including some Wicklow cheeses, as well as other foods which compliment wine drinking.

Irish raw food vegans don’t have much eating choices outside central Dublin. But in Wicklow town raw vegans are spoilt by the Healthy Habits shop and cafe.

The shop sells lots of affordable raw food – nuts, seeds, pulses, wheatgrass, cacao, coffee etc. – as well all sorts of other health foods; it’s essentially like a cheap health food shop with a raw food focus!

Also for sale are materials to aid the adoption of a raw food diet; things like recipe books, dehydrators, wheatgrass systems, and seed sprouting trays. There’s an online ordering system on the Healthy Habits website »

The cafe and kitchen recently underwent major redevelopment and serves up dishes such as:

  • Raw pizzas, made using dehydrated ingredients for the base.
