When I (Jon) lived and studied in Manchester, England in the late 1990’s, I travelled often to Ireland to visit my dear Irish friends. I flew directly to Dublin – a flight of about 30 minutes. Several times I took the train to Holyhead in north Wales, then the ferry across to Dun Laoghaire.

As a guest on The Emerald Isle, you will always be met with famous Irish hospitality – a friendlier population is hard to find!

Enjoy the pictures below, and let yourself be inspired by some Ireland’s most beautiful places – enjoy! :)

Have you ever been to Ireland? What did you think of the country?



Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.
