Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogues, and fathers would sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon. For $18, you get $40 worth of authentic Irish goods at The Kerry Cottage in Maplewood. This deal is valid in-store only and is not valid toward sale items, gift cards, or tax.
The Kerry Cottage is St. Louis’ Irish embassy of cultural retail, providing customers with an extensive inventory of blarney-kissed goods. Caps, sweaters, and flags all pay sartorial tribute to the island nation, while Irish teas and soda bread mixes are great to stock up on in order to have something other than green bananas and painted granite ‘joke peanuts’ to serve to house guests. Novelty items like the Irish drinking gloves ($8) keep beer claws cozy, and men’s and women’s apparel make wearable Irish pride comfortable, unlike wearing the Notre Dame mascot outfit to impress an Irish date’s father. Shoppers searching for finely crafted china can browse the Cottage’s Belleek collection, where bowls ($35-$130), vases ($25-50), picture frames ($45-$70) and more form a handmade army of giftable wares.
The Kerry Cottage houses a nearly inexhaustible collection of goods stamped with genuine of Irishness, and a trip to their shop is more convenient than traveling to the James Joyce museum to see the controversial writer’s first draft of Ulysses, which notably includes the world’s first -- and only -- dirty emoticon. For reliable, clothing and a bounty of unique gifts imbued with government-issued Irish luck, use today’s Groupon at The Kerry Cottage.

- Before I moved to New England, I had great fear of the frigid winters ahead for me. Keeping that in mind, I went to Kerry Cottage and beefed up my sweater collection with some of their beautiful, thick, chunky, cable knit sweaters. That was 8 years ago and they are still in great shape. – Amanda Z.
