I’m both delighted and rather excited that the site got a nice little mention in The Irish Times.

In a piece entitled “Click for home: The best Irish websites for online shoppers” Conor Pope did a nice write up on Irish websites that are catering to online shoppers. One line from the opening paragraph really stuck out – emphasis added:

There were also a few people who said the only options when it comes to online shopping are giant international companies. That could not be further from the truth.

It’s so so true.

There are so many Irish companies that offer fantastic products – and not just of the edible variety!

Conor’s piece is well worth bookmarking, as he’s listing a nice range of sites offering a broad range of goods, including quite a few that I wasn’t aware of.

Personally I like to buy Irish when I can and it’s easy to buy Irish and support local businesses when the products themselves are of high quality. Over the past few months, for example, I’ve bought from quite a few Irish businesses who weren’t online a year ago.

It might only be September, but I usually start thinking about Christmas gifts a bit in advance. It’s even more important when the item has any level of customisation.

You can also check out the Guaranteed Irish member directory, which is a good starting point.

And of course if you’re a business selling food or drink online remember you can get listed for free!
