"LOVE LOVE LOVE this site.  It is so informative. I will be married to an Irishman in the very near future and I'm trying to learn as much as I can of his culture.  Thank you for this site."

- Stacey from Ontario

In these pages you will find simple, fun ways to have an Irish experience, on demand, wherever you happen to be. It is easier than you may think!  

Where Do I Start?

This fun, free quiz will help answer that question.  You can find out how much you already know, and what you want to know more about. 

Each answer is in the form of a picture, so you can have an Irish experience while you play through the quiz!

So - How Did You Do?

If you scored 80 or higher - congratulations!  You are a pro at expressing your Irish side in many different ways!

If your score was in the 60-70 range, you are well on your way!  Brush up on your knowledge below, and then take the quiz again if you like (you can enjoy it as often as you want).

If you scored 50 or less - well, you have definitely come to the right place! :-)

Now, ready to know more about Irish expressions?  Let's dig in!

Now - What's An Irish Expression?

Basically, it is anything you do or say that expresses what we like to call your "Irish Side."  Here is what we mean:

Do you want to take a virtual tour of Ireland, and see the most amazing Irish landmarks without leaving home?

Do you wish you knew the words to the most famous Irish songs?

Are you looking for that perfect Irish toast, blessing, joke, proverb or quote?

Or maybe you want to express your Irish side using beautiful Irish symbols?

Serving Irish food is one of the best ways to have an Irish experience, wherever you are!

Are you looking for fun Irish traditions, games and activities to bring into your day to day life?

Until then, best wishes -
