We are Away with the Fairies!
Hi, we are Rachel and Adrian Allkin, a husband and wife team who share a passion for creativity and who have been “Making believe” since 2001. I made my first Fairy way back in the early 90s for my Mum Dot and never thought back then that I would get to make a full time living and share my love for all things fairy for so many years.

Galway Market and Beyond
We started trading on the Galway market in the early days of our business selling fairies and handmade jewelry. In 2003 we took a huge financial leap (For us!) and took a teeny stand at the National Craft and Design fair in Dublin and after we sold all our fairies in the first 2 days, we realised we might be on to something!
From there our business really grew wings as we traded at various markets and events around Ireland as well as supplying craft and gift shops. As technology allowed, my husband Adrain built our website and we began selling fairies all over the world, with customers as far flung as Japan and Mexico our little Irish fairy story really hand taken off!
Soon we added Fairy Doors and later Fairy Garden Accessories to our range bringing the fairies outdoors and encouraging kids to interact more with the natural world.
Fairy Trail Installation
A Recent Fairy Trail we made near Athlone
In recent years we began supplying and installing fairy trails and gardens for lots of businesses, schools, hospitals, and private clients. We really enjoy working on different projects and love getting out and about in nature. We have designed, supplied, and installed fairy gardens and trails all over Ireland with everything from Solar fairy housing and doors to wishing wells. It’s possible to create a magical fairy environment practically anywhere!
Our Fairy Garden
It was always my dream to create a fairy haven that would encourage fairies and wildlife into our locality.
After a lot of hard work over recent years we have now created a fairy paradise that you can visit .
You are welcome to visit our extensive Fairy Garden, we are open most weekends and school holidays, admission is free, but please phone ahead to book your visit.

Alternatively, you will find us at Galway Market every weekend and at events throughout the year, keep in touch via our social media pages, read my fairy blog, and join our mailing list for the latest fairy goings on at fairy mountain.
We love you to keep in touch and really enjoy seeing pictures of your fairies and fairy gardens so please share the fairy love!
