Going through our Instagram feeds is always an enjoyable experience. It’s even more enjoyable when we come across some of these accounts of places all over Ireland that create food oozing of dairy goodness…

1. Room 8, Navan

This café in Navan is run by Aidan Cosgrave, a self-proclaimed foodie from a young age. It shows in their dishes. Their Nutty Crunch Granola, Old Style Porridge and Energizer Smoothies are just the thing to set you up for the day.

Tullamore’s The Foxy Bean makes great coffee, bakes great treats, and is open late during the week if you want a little unwind after another day at the grindstone.
