Who We Are

We are non-political, non-denominational, owned and managed by emigrants from Ireland. Although we left Ireland some time ago and have lived in both Canada and the USA, a big part of our hearts is still in Ireland and visit our many Irish friends and relatives as often as possible.


The high quality Irish gifts we offer are different and suitable for all occasions. To find them, usually takes a lot of browsing the highways and byways of Ireland - plus a lot of luck! But when you do find them, you know instantly that they are 'just right', either for yourself - or as a meaningful and memorable gifts.


Our emphasis is definitely on fun! Whether it is with our gifts, our periodic contests, or general information about Ireland we always aim to bring a joyous smile to your face. Life without lots of fun and laughter would be boring.


Since many of our gifts are individually and painstakingly hand crafted by highly skilled artisans, they can only be created in small numbers. Consequently, there is always a risk they won’t be available for long. Therefor we particularly encourage you to subscribe to our periodic newsletter so we can let you know when new gifts become available. Naturally, we encourage suggestions on Irish gifts you would find interesting and, indeed, we welcome your comments anytime.

Testimonials

From Our Many Friends All Over the World

We received the cottage and we love it!......We started to read the book (The Romance of Irish Stone Cottages and Turf Fires by Niall Flanagan) that came with the cottage and one of the first statements fits Bill perfectly. His grandparents came from Ireland and Bill feels that the bond he had with them was so close that he is also "from Ireland." Thank you so much for helping him feel even more Irish!

-Bill and Donna

Thank you so much for your wonderful courtesy throughout this whole transaction. It's delightfully obvious you have a strong belief in customer service. Needless to say, all arrived safely and is off to the intended recipient. I'll be holding on to the second Luck Penny for myself !!

-Patrick

Irish Absolutely made our Christmas a little more enjoyable with the two beautiful turf cottages! We love them! The customer service is exceptional! They took the time to let us know our cottages were on the way and any time help was needed on our end; they contacted us immediately. They go above and beyond in customer service! Dealing with Irish Absolutely was grand and we will purchase more in the future I'm sure! Thank you Irish Absolutely! Thank you so much for the help! Us Irish in America always thank true hospitality!

-Michael and Angie

The cottage, the burning turf, the story in Flanagan's booklet – surely there must be a bit of Ireland in us all!

-Michael and Angie

Thank you.......we LOVE the turf!

-Kerry

Delightful and affordable second home – with no overheads!

-Chloe

I have seen the movie (The Quiet Man) more times than I can count! I've been a John Wayne fan since I was a little kid. I've lost count of how many of the Duke's movies I've seen. But the Quiet Man is still one of my all-time favorites. My wife and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon! We went for two weeks. I'm a third generation American, but I love my Irish heritage. I don't know much about my Irish background, but I still try to embrace it. My wife and I tried to stay with all Irish names for the kids. We have Colleen, Brendan, and Alannah. How did we do? I have not seen it (the cottage used in the movie, which is also the inspiration for our cottage!), but I did take a picture of the Quiet Man bridge. I believe it is in Galloway. My cottage was a gift to myself for St. Patrick's Day! I plan to watch The Quiet Man, lite some peat in my cottage, and of course have a pint. Take care and keep in touch!

Thanks for your e mail and for sending the cottage and turf. It is a present for a colleague who is Indian and is leaving Northern Ireland to work elsewhere and we wanted to get him an Irish reminder.....we hope he'll love the Irish cottage, especially as it produces the lovely peat burning aroma.....I looked at several online but yours looked like the prettiest, especially being handmade... Looks lovely especially with the nice little extra touch of the chimney sweeping brush!

-Yvonne

My Irish eyes were smiling when I received my Irish cottage gift box. It has been a long time since I made it back to the ol’ country, but now I feel I have a piece of Ireland with me.

-Simon

The cottage is lovely, and the smell reminds me of the burning fireplace smell I love and, since I live in an apartment and cannot have a fireplace, it is welcome.

-Terry

As we opened the gift, we carefully laid out the contents. So much detail! My four year old is now our resident chimney sweep and loves to prepare our cottage for a nice turf fire before we sit down to our traditional Sunday roast.

-Chris

Thank you for letting me know that my cottage is on its way. Nice doing business with you. Your personal touch is lovely! I will certainly let you know when it arrives. I am looking forward to experiencing a little bit of Ireland in my home.....It will be nice to have the essence in the house for the holidays. I know I am going to place it on an antique server in my foyer. It should be right at home there! I will take of photo.

-Terry

Seeing the cottage, floods back memories of lovely trips through Ireland.

-Ralph

I look at my cottage and think with sorrow and admiration of the great hardships surmounted by hardy Irish emigrants to the New World and hope that those who are lucky enough to own one of these Irish stone cottages replicas are comforted by the aroma of peat and by memories of home.

-Ada

My Irish cottage is wonderful! The smell of real turf burning takes me back to Ireland. Nice gift! Thanks for all your help and kind service.

-Bailey

The wee Irish cottage arrived today. Thank you very much for the prompt delivery. I've bookmarked your site in case I need to order some of these for Christmas gifts....they are that cute! Thanks again!

-Marilyn

I just received my 2nd order. I love the Luck Penny bookmark. It is a very unique gift. I have given 3 away as gifts and the recipients just loved them, too. The penny is very attractive. The bookmark is plastic coated to protect it, and comes with a short story about the history of the Luck Penny. Kept one for myself! Thanks for everything.

-Angie

Condominiums aren't as big a thing in Ireland as they are in North America. Indeed, in the United States and Canada it seems they are sprouting up like mushrooms everywhere. Especially in big cities where land is expensive and in holiday towns where everybody wants to live by the sea.


Back in Ireland it's a bit different. Condos never really caught on, even during the fantastic building boom that went on for so many years. That is until the Celtic Tiger got it's wings clipped - if you will pardon the mixed metaphors!


It seems in Ireland they held on longer than in North America to the idea of owning one's own cottage or house and a garden, even if both were small and even if the pace of life was too frantic to be able to find time to grow roses to admire or vegetables for the evening meal.


So, for those thinking of moving up from one of our cottages to a condo, especially for those immigrants recently arrived from dear 'ol Ireland, we thought it would be helpful to provide a little guidance for those planning to buy a condo over here. Accordingly, we have much pleasure in recommending a new book on the many key questions you must make certain you ask before buying any condo.


This is a book everybody even thinking about buying a condo should read. It's a reference book and guide for all condo buyers. It's good! Impressive testimonials and, as it's an ebook, it's available instantly as a download. So swing by PrimroseHillProductions.com and check it out. You can tell them we sent you. They will look after you.
