The month of May also marked a significant birthday for Co. Cork jewellery company Enibas who celebrated 21 years of being stocked in Kilkenny stores.

We’ll also explore the delightful world of Guadalupe Creations. A relative newcomer to the Design Ireland fold, Guadalupe has been living in Ireland for almost two decades and makes the most wonderful dolls, soft toys and accessories for children notwithstanding the appeal of these seriously Instagram-friendly items for adults as well. The Bowie Bunny anyone?

These toys have serious personality, and are the ultimate in cute and considered design, making them simply perfect gifting items for loved ones - whatever their age.
