Connemara is a floral perfume, based almost exclusively on oils from flowers rather than from fruits or woods, its main ingredients being rose, jasmin, ylang-ylang, lily of the valley and many more. It is inspired by the beauty and majesty of the Connemara countryside, which is home to some of the most breathtaking views of islands, oceans and mountains.

M’asal beag dubh, The Small Black Donkey
This has been an idea of Rachel’s for a very long time and now a reality. Presenting the first in her own design led gift ware. This white 10 oz bone china mug features original artwork of a donkey named Earl. It is both dishwasher and microwave safe. It comes perfectly packaged in a lovely eco-friendly gift box that tells the story of the donkey inside.
Enjoy every sip you take with Earl.
Because of Rachel’s love of animals a portion of the sales profits will go to The Donkey Sanctuary, Ireland, as this is her chosen charity and where her sponsor donkey lives.

“All linked the lights and stories fill this bay, until at last the sea lets up its catch and there I stand Agog, watching the smiling ghosts of all the days Talking and walking on the all forgiving strand.”

Fuchsia Pillar Candle
Connemara Candles was established by Walter and Heather de Lacy in 1988 in Billamore, Oughterard, Co. Galway. Walter is by profession a geologist, who came to the west of Ireland from Dublin in 1974 as a prospector for a mining company. Originally the assignment was for eight weeks, but this stretched into two years, during which time the cottage in Billamore was acquired.
! Note the picture depicted is incorrect and these candles no longer have the wording Connemara on them, just a depiction of Fuchsia’s.
