Social networking for Irish people abroad and in Ireland. is an online community with over 250,000 members worldwide. The site is for Irish expats, descendants and any person wishing to travel to Ireland.


When I go to Ireland, I love to bake. It's an ideal way for me to relax - but it's also an opportunity to use high quality ingredients. Several weeks (sometimes months) before I travel, I begin researching recipes that will allow me to use produce that I know will be in season or ingredients that are otherwise special or unique - ingredients that are not always easily accessible to me at home in the U.S.
