These gorgeous handmade Irish candles have the most amazing detail and fine craftsmanship. They are incredibly accurate and lifelike miniatures of the famous stone oratory and beehive huts found on the Skellig Islands off the Kerry coast in South West Ireland. These huts were built in the sixth century when, with the introduction of Christianity to Ireland, they formed a monastery. The monastery consisted of a small enclosure of these stone huts and oratories, which still stand to this day on the island. Although it is not known who is the founder of the monastery,tradition gives it to St. Fionan.
Initially we specialised in traditional Irish knitwear and Irish collarless grandad shirts, as well as a few other ranges of Irish clothing and Irish gifts.
We still do this but over the years we have expanded our range of craft products considerably and from our website base, Irish Inspiration, in Bridgnorth, Shropshire send them to many happy and satisfied customers all over the world.
