Gluten-Free Pop Up Shop Opens in Dublin

Unglu-d is a Gluten-Free Shop that has re-opened its doors this year for a longer duration due to the increased demand for Gluten Free Foods.

The shop itself is situated in Unit 3 Royal Hibernian Way, Dawson Street, Dublin 2 and has partnered with a variety of big brands including Free’ist to bring consumers a special Gluten-Free Shopping Experience.

The creator of Unglu-d is Aileen Markey, a Coeliac herself. She was diagnosed a couple of years and decided to test the concept of having a store completely dedicated for Coeliacs and individuals who are Gluten Intolerant.

According to the Ireland Coeliac Society, Ireland is considered one of the countries with the highest coeliac disease  rates in the world. A possible reason for this may be the Irish diets, which are historically rich in Cereals and Wheat laded foods.

Unglu-d are stocking our Free’ist Gluten-Free Range which includes our six Chocolate Bars, Popcorns, Marshmallows & Jams.
