The Irish Gift Guide – Part 4

I’m getting such a great response from the gift guides that I’ve decided to do some more. This edition will focus on hobbies, so if you are looking for something different for a loved one this might be of interest. I’ve already covered the gardeners and the animal lovers. I’ve also written about creative experiences online. I hope you enjoy the suggestions, and that you can support Irish businesses at this difficult time.


Studio Dancewear is owned and run by Jane Byrne, a former teacher of Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance and now a mum to a young aspiring dancer. Jane’s online shop has everything a dancer would wish for, check out the hampers which can be customised for you.

KT Metal makes gorgeous mini sculptures from scrap metal. You can find some on The Cat and the Moon website, but I also saw a surfer and wind surfer on their social media so I’m sure if you were looking for something else you could send them an email.

A present of a tideclock is a practical, personal gift for sailors, kayakers, beach lovers, sea swimmers, dog walkers, surfers. Four Sprung Ducks make a variety of tide clocks and also chopping boards, coasters, etc. for surfers, kayakers and more.
