    I love Bells of Ireland! I always get excited when a bride wants to use them in their wedding decor. They are fabulous.

    Those photos make me want to hit up an Irish pub and enjoy a delicious meal and a Guinness! :)

    I know I am a day late but a Grasshopper is nice frozen green drink. Not very Irish but the color is just right.
