Let Your Imagination Run Away with The Fairies

This event is brought to you in association with LEO Limerick.

The Irish Fairy Door Company helps fairies relocate into homes and gardens all over the world by producing high quality Irish fairy doors. Find out the key to their success at our next Network Ireland Limerick event with Irish Fairy Door Company co-founder and chief storyteller Niamh Sherwin-Barry.


From kitchen table to International business 

After being hit very badly by the recession, Niamh and Oisin Barry and Aoife and Gavin Lawler were on the verge of emigrating. Following a conversation around the kitchen table in June 2013 the company started business, largely through Facebook and word of mouth that August.  Their mission was to bring children’s imaginations back and enable them to play like they used. 

Four years later and the Irish Fairy Door Company now employ 15 people and ship to over 120 different countries and have sold close to 500,000 pieces worldwide. 

Learn how this simple idea has quickly grown into a hugely successful business which now sees every second child in Ireland own their own Fairy Door.
