ABOUT TOTALLY IRISH GIFTS – WHERE IMAGINATION IS CREATION!
Totally Irish Gifts.com opened in October 2012 and is owned by us – Shauna and John Curran. Totally Irish Gifts.com was borne out of our own frustrations in trying to source unique and creative Irish gifts that are actually made in Ireland to give to friends and family for various occasions.
We are committed to the‘Buy Irish’ ethos, we only sell Irish made gifts because we believe ‘Irish’ should mean ‘made in Ireland’. We believe in the quality, uniqueness and beauty of the creative Irish gifts on this website, we are enthralled by the creativity and craftsmanship of our suppliers and most of all we believe in the ability and spirit of the Irish. We believe you deserve the best and that you will love our home grown gifts.
We put a business plan together for an online Irish shop, Shauna completed the FÁS Business Appraisal Course which gave an opportunity to research and develop a business plan. A course in Creative Communication at the Institute of Technology in Blanchardstown and an internship with Cooley Healthcare armed Shauna with the necessary skills to develop and organise a website, coupled with John’s Bachelor of Commerce degree and his entrepreneurial experience – Totally Irish Gifts.com became a reality – an Irish store for Irish gifts.
Absolutely all Irish gifts featured on this website have beendesigned and made in Ireland, produced by designers, craftspeople and cottage industries dotted all around Ireland. You can learn more about our suppliers on their product pages, or shop by supplier here.
We have traveled Ireland meeting with suppliers of Irish crafts, getting to know them and their amazing Irish crafts. We have sat at kitchen tables, in living rooms, in garden sheds, met at market stalls and small Irish shops and offices, at craft fairs and trade shows. There are so many talented crafters in Ireland enabling Totally Irish Gifts to offer a great choice of creative Irish gifts. We are delighted to introduce our suppliers and their Irish crafts to the world.
On this site we have over 60 suppliers creating wonderful Irish gifts and we are continually sourcing new suppliers to offer our customers unique and interesting gift options.
To all of you, from all of us behind the scenes at Totally Irish Gifts – Thank you and Happy Shopping!
