The Icon Factory / The Icon Walk – Dublin

I recently had the chance of spending a couple of days in Ireland, since it was my first experience in the island I went all trough with the typical Guinness and leprechaun’s trip, even more than normal since it was the during the St. Patrick’s weekend.The Icon Walk 7

One of the things that was a really good surprise was a small store on one of the side streets of temple bar called “The Icon Factory”.The Icon Walk

The Icon Factory is an non-profit, volunteer-based artist co-operative, that can show us with their creations that Ireland is so much more than leprechaun’s, Guinness and shamrocks.The Icon Walk 5
They show us the musicians, writers and all the others that marked Ireland history re-inventing them in a way that make us wanting them all over or living room.The Icon Walk 6
Not only did they changed the souvenirs market but they also created an amazing outdoors gallery with the “The Icon Walk”.The Icon Walk 4

And just how they say in their Facebook page:

“The Celtic Tiger turned out to be a pussy cat so now its time for Gaelic Lions to roar, to roam the midland boglands and the sidewalks of Temple Bar.TheIcon walk 2
We will honor you if we love you and mock those whom we disrespect.”
