A little bit of Ireland, every month

I love this idea. Many of O'Shea Travel's clients come home not only missing the Irish scenary and people but also the wonderful food, crafts and products that are only found in Ireland. Katherine and Thomas Barrett took this concept and made a business out of it. The story is best told in their own words
"We are husband and wife team Katharine Keane Barrett and Thomas Barrett. We launched MyIrelandBox in 2013 as a result of our passion in Irish designed craft. We left the corporate world in Dublin in 2007 and returned to Katharine’s native Dingle, County Kerry . We entered the tourist industry and were surrounded by gifted craftspeople in our area. Our aim is to give people, both in Ireland and beyond access to the world of great Irish craft made by talented Irish people, and so MyIrelandbox.com was created.
At MyIrelandBox we are excited to introduce subscribers to the wonderful world of Irish made craft and to those who make them! We scour Ireland and thoughtfully curate the best of Irish craft for you.
Included in your MyIrelandBox will be a selection of 1 large or 2-4 Irish made/designed home goods, accessories, jewellery, stationary or beauty products and the value of the box will be at least $45 (and it’s usually more)! All contents in each MyIrelandBox are a surprise!!
MyIrelandBox offers a one off MyIrelandBox option, a month to month recurring subscription or a prepaid 3,6 or 12 month package giving our subscribers a surprise gift for themselves or for someone else!
We aim to support Irish businesses and so, included in each MyIrelandBox will be a background story and information on each Irish craft maker whose product we choose. We are thrilled to offer Irish made products to those who may not be able to access them easily.
If you live abroad, have visited Ireland on holiday or live on this beautiful island and want to surprise yourself or someone else with thoughtfully chosen and lovingly made Irish goods every month, then Subscribe at www.MyIrelandBox.com
