Yummy Irish Scone!

Lucky to be living in the Bluegrass!

On June 10th 2016 I will be celebrating 20 years of living in the Bluegrass. I came here for just 3 weeks. Yep there is a story there! There are lots of Irish living in the Bluegrass state and I'm lucky enough to deliver Irish goods to their door which normally means driving onto a beautiful farm! This week while I was delivering the goods from my shop I slowed down and looked around and I'm happy to share some photos of these amazing farms and the animals who live there! One is American you don't see him everyday unless your lucky enough to be IRISH living in Kentucky!

Sip, Shop and Shine

Join us on September 17th for our first ever ladies night! It also happens to be half way to St. Patricks Day. We will have shop specials, drink specials at McCarthy's, pre book your hat for the Breeders cup and the Ireland trip winner announced. All this is happening at Failte. Join us onSeptember 17th at 7.30pm for a fun free evening! Failte will have some vino, some nibbles, beauty experts from DIOR to do makeup and advise on beauty. It's going to be fun fun FUN!

Gold Sale

We are having some great deals at Failte these days!

All gold jewelry is 50% off.  All these unique designs are all Celtic related. The Claddagh meaning love, friendship and loyalty. The Trinity knot meaning the three holy spirits. The Celtic knot meaning eternal love. Just to mention a few.

Please let me know if you have any questions we love hearing from you.

All the best.


Keeping our head above the water!

I started the shop in 2001 with the idea of sausages and we have grown so much in the last 13 years. We are far more than just a shop. We are the Irish community! Not to praise ourselves too much. What we help do is a lot more than selling Irish goods. We got involved in the St. Patrick’s Day parade 6 years ago and we helped add a festival that has grown nearly as big as July 4th. We are very involved in The Kentucky Rose Center. We are on the committee that helps find girls from around Kentucky and send them to The Rose of Tralee. We founded the Lexington Celtic association that meets the 1st Thursday of every month for an Irish culture evening.  With free Irish dance lessons from the Kentucky McTeggart Irish dancers and music by Liam Fancy!

Right now we are finding business a little tough. There is a lot of construction where we are and it’s hard to get to us. You really have to want too! We have a parking spot beside our shop which helps a little. We will find a way to hang in here till it’s all done!  But we are in desperate need for the Irish community to help support a local business!

Thank you all so very much

Hope to see you soon.


New parking spot for Failte

We are so excited to announce our new parking spot. It’s on Upper street right next door to my shop!

We hope this makes your life a little easier.

Hope to see you soon.
