Irish At Heart is a wonderful monthly subscription box that gathers together a unique collection of 5-7 authentically Irish products and curates around them around a different theme. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates the charm of Ireland and helps to support small Irish businesses to thrive.
The classic green box arrives at the end of each month with full tracking, and July’s box is themed Cairdeas/Friendship. Let’s see what’s inside, shall we?
Cairdeas Pebble Art
Created by the Irish artist Catherine Bradford, these beautiful Pebble Art pieces are made in her studio at the foot of the stunning Mourne Mountains. Each piece is lovingly handmade and unique – I love it!
Glass Worry Monk
Nestled in a cotton pouch, I pulled out this intriguing Glass Worry Monk which is handmade by the master artisans Jerpoint Glass at County Kilkenny, a family-run business that’s been going for over 40 years. Each Worry Monk is unique and inspired by the famous stone carvings at Jerpoint Abbey. They can be used to help ease anxiety in the same manner as worry dolls.
Celtic Knot Friendship Pendant Necklace
I love jewellery, so naturally, this beautiful Celtic Knot Friendship Pendant Necklace is my favourite item from this month’s box. Based on the ancient Celtic knot design, this pendant symbolises love, loyalty and the enduring bonds of friendship.
You’re So Loved Lavender Bath Bomb
For a bathtime pampering experience at home, the You’re So Loved Lavender Bath Bomb has been handmade by the organic natural skincare company, Organicules who are based in West Cork. It smells amazing!
Mixed Fruit Travel Sweets
Finally, there is a lovely tin of traditional Irish Mixed Fruit Travel Sweets to complete the box – yum!
