Slow Down and Appreciate the Finer Things in Life
In a world where everyone is just “too busy”, a beautiful photograph or image can have the power to stop you right in your tracks. A simple photo or painting can instantly stir up long-forgotten feelings of a particular place, or even of a particular smell.
To quote the 80’s hit film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and take a look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
The same could be said for art. We should all slow down and appreciate the inescapable beauty of a photograph or image once in a while. After all, the relationship between art, emotion, and personal wellbeing is a strong one.
Súileir’s Passion for Art
At Súileir, simply put, we love art. More specifically, we love Irish art – Súileir, translated from the Irish language, means “Ireland’s Eyes”.
Our Curator, Leo O Connor has had a huge passion for Ireland from a very early age. It’s this passion that led him to founding Súileir with the aim of bringing a piece of Ireland to as many homes throughout the world as possible. This little piece of Ireland is sent in the form of Irish art.
“Ireland is a magical place. Its beauty, its quirks, its achievements, its shortcomings, its history, its people, its culture, its stories, its customs, and its habits. It has so much to offer to so many people. Our artists have captured the true essence of Ireland in a huge variety of stunning images, and, through Súileir, we offer the ability to ship this little piece of Ireland, to every part of the world.”
Leo O Connor, Curator of Súileir
The Real Ireland – From Near or Far
There are so many amazing views and points of interest all across this small emerald isle that we call home. Our landscapes, our towns, and our cities are all unique in their own way. No two images of Ireland can ever be called the same.
Thanks to years of work from our wonderful community of photographers and artists we have been able to amass a veritable catalogue of work, clearly demonstrating Ireland’s awesome beauty in all its forms.
Additional images are also added on an ongoing basis, making Súileir the “go to” place for Irish Images.
Music and Culture
Music and culture are such an important part of Irish life. At Súileir, this aspect is very well represented. Our pieces include many of our internationally renowned homegrown performers, both past and present. Not only that, they also include world-famous stars performing in Ireland.
Through our sports collection, you can also find iconic and exciting images of Irish sport, at home and abroad. Irish athletes have consistently performed at very high levels, over many different sports, and our talented photographers and artists have managed to make these moments timeless through their work.
