From festive foodies to the arty folk in your life, we have curated the best of the Gaeltacht for your Christmas shopping list. Ó Chorca Dhuibhne go dtí An Spidéal, tá seoid na Gaeltachta tugtha le chéile againn sa liosta Nollag seo.
From the Cork Gaeltacht of Cúil Aodha, Folláin has an extensive, delicious range of jams, preserves, chutneys and relishes in beautifully designed jars. I love the idea of the gift box to try the most 'out there' flavours with a few of the classics too. Grá mo chroí an subh sú chraobh a dhéanann siad ar arán donn.
From work from home subscriptions to exclusive, experimental blends, Bean in Dingle has some of the best coffee around and ships from Daingean Uí Chúis where it's roasted. Cuireann an phacaistiú buí gliondar ar mo chroí nuair a thagann sé tríd an doras go seachtainiúil!
Conamara's finest eating establishment and voted Ireland's best café, Pota, situated in Baile na hAbhann focuses on local produce and sustainability on the menu and is selling vouchers and hampers for Christmas. They even do a special Gaeltacht based hamper! Má bhíonn tú ar cuairt, ná fág an áit gan an rouladh a thriail.
Not far from the stunning location of Donegal's airport is the latest distillery on the block. Based in what used to be the Crolly Doll factory, you can take a tour of the distillery and taste the wonderful wares at the end or buy a beautiful bottle online. Is fiú go mór an turas a dhéanamh agus stair na háite a fhoghlaim.
I am low level obsessed with the stunning designs from Criostal na Rinne. Understated glamour from Waterford Gaeltacht, An Rinn. My favourites are the Cló collection, inspired by the markings of ogham script, the early Irish alphabet. Samhlaím margarita deas a ól as an ngloine thíos, foirfe!
West Kerry native Fiadh Durham has made a name for herself with her stunning use of colour and texture in weaving scarves and other accessories. Fiadh's designs are informed by the intriguing colour and pattern combinations of the area; she regularly undertakes explorations and photographic expeditions around the inspirational landscapes of the West Coast of Ireland. Infheistíocht ar cheardaíocht na hÉireann is ea saothar Fiadh.
A collection of poetry is one of life's great gifts. This latest collection, Tonn Teaspaigh agus Dánta Eile, from award-winning poet, Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh delves into the challenges and joys of modern motherhood and womanhood. Ní filíocht go fírinne.
