Our Most Loved Books About Ireland for Kids

My girls have been steeped in Ireland and the Irish culture since birth. Simple bedtime stories of pookas and faeries made way for The Children of Lir and Fin McCool as they grew older.

During our Ireland travels my girls have learned about local legends, famous people, and historical happenings. Well-told tales have resulted in us bringing home books which are read, re-read, and thoughtfully discussed.

Books about Ireland lie scattered around our house, always available for a quick read, or a more thorough session nestled in a comfy chair, hot cocoa and biscuits close at hand.
