I was inundated with suggestions of beautiful arts and crafts. Some people were mentioned several times. So here’s part two of my Irish gift guide, you can read part one here. I hope you find some inspiration and something beautiful for yourself or a friend.
Studio Donegal. Beautiful handwoven Irish Tweed. Accessories for your home or yourself and gorgeous clothing too. https://www.studiodonegal.ie/
Patches Memory Bears make quilts, bunting, bears and more from baby clothes or clothes belonging to your loved ones. https://patches.ie/memory-bears.html
The Weir Gallery. For those living in Sligo pay a visit to The Weir Gallery next to Osta Cafe. Home to an artist collective, you can contact them via their website too.
Pat Flannery Artwork. I have fallen in love with Pat’s work, so much so that I’ve ordered the mug and coaster set above. Pat is a self-taught artist and is hugely talented.
Busy Beaders. If you love angels, crystals and charms you’ll love Busy Beaders. Helena also makes custom pieces. Find her here: https://busybeaders.com/
Sally Ann’s Bags. Each bag is individual and unique, they are lined with recycled jeans and some are even reversible. Sally Ann also makes gorgeous hoodies, hats, t shirts and more.
Caricatures by Carmel. A really quirky idea and a great way to capture you or your family. Carmel did our caricatures for our team at work and they are brilliant.
Bernie Murphy Design. Beautiful clothing and accessories, made in the North West of Ireland. Shop here: https://berniemurphy.com/

Ciaraíoch fine art prints. Featuring Irish nature, myths, legends and more.
NutJob Design. Laser cut signs, height charts, medal holders and so much more. Orla is lovely too. https://nutjobdesign.ie/collections/all-products
The Irish Whiskey Stone Company. Hip flasks, whiskey and gin chilling stones (which won’t water down your drinks like ice does). Quirky and functional gifts.
Rob Stears. Fantastic prints, cards, mugs, books and more. So many to choose from or even get a customised piece of art.
So that’s Part Two and because there are so many beautiful products I will do another gift guide to inspire you.
