Ireland has long enjoyed a reputation for high-quality crafts and today its giftware is sought after by visitors to museums and heritage sites worldwide. From luxurious textiles and silverware to artisan candles and bespoke branded items, Irish products hold a special appeal based on unequalled quality.
Central to this appeal is the unique stories of heritage and craftsmanship found in Irish products, and a design aesthetic that is renowned globally. For museum gift shop operators, this means strong demand, revenues and margins. Visitor numbers are on the rise and Irish products’ mix of design, quality and stories is an increasingly strong commercial proposition.
