All about our May Irish Subscription Box

The month of May, or ‘Bealtaine’ in Irish, heralds in the Summer.

As the days grow longer and the cold winds abate, Ireland’s great natural beauty awakens from its Winter slumber. 

In ancient times, Bealtaine was a particularly important time of the year, marking the halfway point between the Vernal Equinox and Summer Solstice, an auspicious time of increased fertility and abundance.

Great festivals took place across the land celebrating the waxing power of the sun. Bonfires were lit, their fiery flames a symbol of purification and renewal.

Ancient trees, held sacred by the Celts, were adorned with blooms to appease the fairies.

Young maidens would bathe themselves in the early morning Bealtaine dew to increase their beauty and keep signs of ageing at bay.

Today, this ancient festival is still celebrated in a smaller way, and we hope the gifts we have chosen for you help you and your loved ones to welcome in the summer months.

Invoke your inner Celt with our curated selection of artisanal crafts. A beautiful way to celebrate your Irish heritage.
