Our beautiful Celtic Collection Soy Wax Candles are poured into bespoke candle vessels produced by local Ceramicist , Cathy Devlin Dempster from Willow Moon Ireland. Each scent, and its name , has been carefully chosen to represent wonderful memories of joyous moments from throughout my life.

Innisfree

This scent is reminiscent of memories of holidays spent on the West Coast of Ireland, in particular our honeymoon spent at the stunning Ashford Castle in Cong, County Mayo.

My husband and I share a love for The Quiet Man movie starring Maureen O'Hara and John Wayne in 1952 and whilst the fictional town of Innisfree was home to Kate Danaher & Sean Thornton in The Quiet Man, the actual movie was shot in the town of Cong. We have spent many a holiday searching out the locations where the various movie scenes were shot. 

Dick Farrelly wrote a haunting song called 'Isle of Innisfree' about an Irish immigrant and his  longing to return home to Ireland. It was chosen by director John Ford as the principal theme for The Quiet Man and sung by the beautiful Maureen O'Hara in the movie. 

The lyrics are so emotive and can still bring tears to my eyes when I hear them. They convey completely my love for my homeland. 

One of the lines in the song describes gathering round the turf fire and our Innisfree candle has a beautiful turf aroma. It immediately transports me back to the roaring fires at Ashford Castle in April 2008.
