On our recent St. Patrick's weekend trip we got to chase fairies through Historic Dublin, Ohio!
The Irish Fairy Door Company of Dublin, Ireland has found a new in Dublin, Ohio. That weekend also marked their official U.S. launch.
To celebrate, seven Dublin business had fairy doors hidden in their establishment. Visitors are encouraged to get a passport and find all the fairy doors. Once completed, you can turn in the passport for a t-shirt (while supplies last).
According to the Dublin Visitor Center, more than 150 visitors completed passports that weekend. The trail will be open year round and will continue to grow as more establishments join. An outdoor trail will open during the Dublin Irish Festival August 5 - 7, 2016.
The fairy trail through Historic Dublin was the perfect opportunity to sightsee and shop. Some doors were easier to find than others and all proprietors were helpful and friendly.
Determined to kidnap a fairy of her own, my daughter delighted in being able to bring one home. She was more than willing to share her room until she read the lease. It states that the door must be accessible and clear of debris. She decided to put the fairy door in our living room.
Life-long friends Niamh Sherwin Barry and Aoife Lawler started The Irish Fairy Door Company with their husbands Oisin and Gavin. Together they create high-quality wooden fairy doors in a variety of colors and styles. Besides launching in the U.S., they have also partnered with Starlight Children’s Foundation. The Irish Fairy Door Company will donate product to Starlight community partners.
We left our fairy's keys out for her to move in and once she signed her lease, we registered Little Lilly Sprinkles with the National Fairy Council.
The kids have been writing to her ever since.
