7 very Irish Valentine's Day presents

Fancy a ride?

WE ALREADY BROUGHT you a selection of alternative Irish Valentine’s Day cards.

Now, for the presents. Here are 7 of our favourites:

1. ‘Fancy A Ride’ print

As the product description says, “Who doesn’t like an auld ride?”

From the man who brought you Keep Going Sure It’s Grand and Pray For Twink. (

2. ‘Go on, go on’ print

Perfect for that person who just needs a little persuading. Also relevant for all hospitality-based situations. (I Love Mayo)

3. Trip to the Shandon Bells

A Cork institution, and a perfect foil for your absolute worst lines. “Let our love ring out”; “You ring me like a bell” – they write themselves. (

4. All my heart

An anatomically-correct heart, printed on an old encyclopaedia page. It’s romantic AND you learn something. By Pat Byrne. (

5. Our neighbourhood map

Live in the capital? Feel a neighbourhood loyalty?* This clever print map by Bold and Noble might be the answer. There's also a nationwide version. (

* D7 4 LIFE

6. Heart to heart

The two hearts fit together, see? We love a metaphor, we do. Designed and made in Ireland. (

7. Dublin skyline tour


Not this view (in fact pretty much exactly the opposite direction) but the lookin' out from the Skyline Tour at Croke Park is pretty spectacular. Sure the capital isn't such a bad place after all. (
