Here's what Twitter thinks Ireland actually smells like

#irishsmells has been taking over timelines this morning


That was the question put to listeners of Ian Dempsey’s Breakfast Show on Today FM this morning.

There was no shortage of replies as the people of Ireland mulled over their favourite local aromas and #irishsmells slowly began to take over Twitter feeds.

Here are just a selection of scents that tickled nostrils around the country:

The full Irish breakfast

The scent of a good old sod of turf

And the competition

The aroma of the Atlantic

There’s a LOT of love for the Guinness brewery in the capital

A subtle hint of Liffey water

The pub, at any time of day

A good waft of eau de Coppers

Some late night take-away

A bit of fake bake

Marvellous medicinal odours

The strong stuff

A grouped selection of notion-laced scents

And of course, a traditional favourite that you’d be hard pushed to ignore
