Ahead of St. Patrick’s Day on 17 March, we asked three top Irish influencers to share the places that make the country truly special to them. From castles to forests to beaches, introducing #OurIreland…
The Kildare native recently returned to Ireland, swapping the bright lights of New York City for the charm of Dublin
"I feel like I grew up in Waterford, spending every single summer on the beaches of the copper coast. It’s got to be one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. My style has definitely evolved since the summers I spent here, so I chose to shoot this absolutely divine white power suit in the most beautiful setting. I paired the suit with the comfiest block heels that make such a statement. I’d love to know where your favourite place in Ireland is, and let me know what you think of this look on Instagram."
A mum of two and award-winning blogger, Naomi returned home to Cavan after kick-starting The Style Fairy in Dublin
“We absolutely love to get outdoors as a family. We visited one of our all-time favourite locations, Erica’s Fairy Forest near Cavan, a local gem. We are lucky to have this special forest nearby to visit – it’s magical! I’m so excited to have teamed up with Marks & Spencer for the ‘Our Ireland’ campaign. In the lead-up to St Patrick’s Day, I am going to be talking about some of my favourite locations and why they are so important to me on Instagram. It all starts here, today, in this mystical forest, making memories with my own little fairies.”
Born in Armagh, Northern Ireland, Clementine has called Dublin home for the past 12 years
“With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I’m delighted to team up with M&S, who are celebrating 40 years in Ireland this year. Dublin Castle has been one of my favourite spots in the city since I moved here 12 years ago. It’s always so peaceful and the buildings are amazing. Today I’m wearing this fabulous stitch-detail suit at another of my favourite spots, the Cake Cafe. This cut is classic, cool and extremely versatile, so I know I’ll be wearing it for years to come.”
