Sealed with Irish love

Irish Gifts & Homeware


Welcome to the Sealed with Irish Love blog. I’m Máire and I am loving living back in the west of Ireland after working in Edinburgh and London for a number of years.

The Changing Face of Galway

Last Friday, I set off in my car to get in touch with some new stockists in Galway. I love these trips as I get to cover alot of ground in one day and visit towns which can be a little off the beaten track.
