*NOW CLOSED* Win a foodie trip to Ireland

*THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED* Our favourite foodie twins, The Happy Pear, owners of The Happy Pear café in Ireland, authors of two prior cookbooks and plant-based eating pioneers, are back with a third cookbook, Recipes for Happiness. Full of colourful, inspiring and happy-making recipes, this is a cookbook that will appeal to everyone, with plenty of family favourites with a vegan twist, easy midweek meals that are perfect after a day of work, and plant-based versions of comfort food classics.

To celebrate the release of Recipes for Happiness, we have teamed up with Tourism Ireland to offer you and a friend the chance to discover the foodie scene in the twins’ beautiful homeland of Ireland. The brilliant prize includes return flights from Mainland Britain to Dublin, airport transfers, two nights in a 4* hotel in Dublin and a voucher to spend at The Happy Pear café in Greystones.

Dublin is ‘a breath of fresh air’, where you‘ll move easily from the vibrant city centre life to the peaceful tranquillity of its picturesque coastal villages in less than 30 minutes. Spend some time exploring the iconic city sites like Trinity College, the Guinness Storehouse and free museums like the Irish Museum of Modern Art, or the National Gallery of Ireland. Just 30 minutes away is Greystones, a charming seaside town and home to the Happy Pear twins. Hop on the Dart train and take in the beautiful coastal views. A walk along the coastal cliff path from Bray to Greystones is the perfect way to work up an appetite, and what better way to satisfy your hunger than with a delicious lunch made from local produce in The Happy Pear café.
