Gift of Ireland was set up, after a long period of reflection and research in to providing a service for people of Irish heritage, throughout the world. One that would celebrate Ireland’s history and traditions, and give a meaningful link back home for people, wherever in the world they live.
We felt that it is important for people of Irish descent, to have an opportunity to take part in our shared heritage. It is important to remember those who had to leave Ireland in less prosperous times, and know that they are still part of Ireland.
We are located in Newmarket, Co. Cork, an area steeped in Irish history and legend. This is an area, that is part of Ireland’s living culture of traditional music, craft and song.
Gift of Ireland.com is owned and managed by Danny Sheahan.
Our philosophy is about celebrating the finest Irish crafts, traditions and gifts and making those accessible to people all over the world.
The call of the Land, has always resonated very strongly among Irish people, and we believe that we are helping people answer that call, and give a uniquely Irish way to mark special occasions in life.
Gift of Ireland is passionate about small artisan producers, the artist, craftspeople that are passionate about their products and the traditions that inform them.
Where possible we prefer to support small scale producers. It benefits local communities and our buyers get to see very unique Irish gifts.
