How do our U.S. subscribers get their hands on your gorgeous art pieces?
Firstly through yourselves at Irish at Heart of course, but we also have a list of US and Irish stockists on our website, or you can buy directly from https://theirishhandmadeglasscompany.com/ which ships worldwide.
Finally, where in Ireland would you recommend our subscribers to visit?
I’m going to be a bit biased here and say the South East, which is an area that comprises of Waterford, Wexford, Tipperary and Kilkenny. Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, was founded in 914AD by the Vikings and is thought to be the third oldest city in Northern Europe after Paris and London.
We have a huge amount to see and do here, with three fascinating museums, The Viking Triangle (where we are based) and The Greenway. The latter is a 49km stretch of track for cycling and walking which has recently been opened on the disused railway between Waterford City and Dungarvan.
We also have the Copper Coast, which is a UNESCO Global Geopark that stretches from Tramore bay to Dungarvan. There is just so much to talk about in Waterford – it boasts at least six courses for golfing enthusiasts and was even recognised as the 'Foodie' capital of Ireland in 2019!
Co. Wexford and Co. Kilkenny are just across the river, and the beautiful Kilkenny City lies just 35 miles north of Waterford. The small medieval city holds St John’s castle at its centre as well as being home to a lively nightlife and great atmosphere! Wexford town is again approximately only 35 miles to the east of Waterford, and you can’t visit the South-East without a visit to Hook Head Lighthouse.
A visit to this part of the world is really a visit to the real Ireland, and you can be sure of a great welcome here!
