Hi everyone. I hope I find you all well. This week I am so delighted to introduce our stunning new collection of Irish art framed prints by Irish artist, Jim Scully. From iconic Irish buildings to some of Ireland’s best loved land and seascapes, these beautiful prints are exquisitely detailed and make the perfect Irish gift and a wonderful souvenir of the Emerald Isle. The collection also gives me the perfect excuse to take you all on a tour of Ireland to visit some of the famous Irish places depicted in this beautiful collection!
The Jim Scully Collection
1. Blarney Castle, County Cork
We begin in County Cork at Blarney Castle, arguably Ireland’s most famous castle with its promise of the “gift of the gab” when you kiss the famous Blarney Stone! Beautifully brought to life in watercolor and ink.
2. Giant’s Causeway, County Antrim.
We head up north now to the magical land and seascape that is the Giant’s Causeway. This awe-inspiring geological wonder consists of 40,000 basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It is also the land of legend and myth with its famous tale of Finn Mac Cool and the giant Benandonner.
3. Grafton Street, Dublin.
We head down to the capital now for the first of three beautiful pieces depicting iconic places in the city of Dublin. First up, Grafton Street. Here, the artist beautifully captures the hustle and bustle of Dublin’s finest shopping street with the entrance of St. Stephens Green in the background.
4. Trinity College, Dublin
Heading down to the bottom of Grafton Street now to one of Dublin’s most iconic and beautiful buildings. Trinity College covers some 47 acres and dates back to 1592. It is also home to of one of Ireland’s greatest treasures, The Book of Kells.
5. Ha’penny Bridge, Dublin.
A short walk now down to the river and Dublin’s much loved Ha’penny Bridge. The bridge dates back to 1816 and in this stunning painting, Jim Scully beautifully captures the sweep of the bridge over the River Liffey to the south quay.
6. Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary
Next stop, County Tipperary and the simply awesome Rock of Cashel. It rises out of the rolling Tipperary landscape like something out of a fairy tale. Also known as St. Patrick’s Rock, it is also the place where it is claimed St Patrick converted the King of Munster.
7. The Cliffs of Moher, County Clare.
Heading westward now to the world famous Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. Their breathtaking beauty has seduced visitors for centuries. Beautifully recreated by Jim Scully in watercolor with exquisite pen and ink detailing.
8. The Long Walk, Galway.
A short hop up Ireland’s west coast now for a visit to this historic corner of Galway city. Beginning at Spanish Arch, it takes you along Lough Corrib and takes in the old Claddagh fishing village which gives it name to Ireland’s world famous ring and love token.
9. Kilkenny Castle.
We end our journey in the medieval city of Kilkenny and the stunning castle in the heart of the city which sits majestically on the banks of the River Nore. Jim Scully beautifully captures that majesty and grandeur this iconic Irish castle with St. John’s Bridge in the foreground.
Well that concludes our tour of the Emerald Islet to showcase these stunning framed prints by the renowned Jim Scully. Which one will you choose? Whatever you’re favorite, these beautiful pieces make a memorable Irish gift or a treasured little piece of iconic Ireland for the home.
