Meet more Design Ireland makers in their virtual showrooms at Showcase Ireland

PRODUCTS born in Ireland is what Showcase is all about, and Design Ireland at Showcase is where to find a tightly curated selection of Irish designed and produced products.

Presented by the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland, products are judged by the national agency for Irish designers and makers’ development on an independent panel of retail experts who have done the hard work, creating more time to enjoy all that Ireland produces for Showcase Ireland. Curated selections are new while ancient and modern as well as traditional and contemporary in design.

“Showcase is a real working show for the Meadows & Byrne team,” said Julie Nolan, Irish Pottery and Crafts buyer at Meadows & Byrne Ireland. “Order books come out, notebooks get filled up and we all leave absolutely full of inspiration and excited for the season ahead. It is a great show at which I can catch up with existing suppliers.”

The award-winning Irish jewellery designer Jennifer Kinnear takes her inspiration for a love of the ocean, being outdoors and in Ireland’s rich history. Jennifer’s most recent collection has been inspired by Grace O’Malley, Ireland’s ‘Pirate Queen ‘Granuaile’ and every piece is cast, finished and hallmarked in Dublin Ireland.
