Guinness beer is an international household name that has been around for over 250 years. The founder of Guinness, Arthur Guinness, began the amazing adventure of making this iconic beer on December 31st, 1759 when he signed a stupendous 9,000-year lease at St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, Ireland. This brewery is a historic landmark in Ireland, and it is where Guinness beer is still made to this day. It is popularly recognized by its beautiful black entrance gate that displays the Guinness name and harp logo in vibrant gold lettering, the vintage-style light posts that flank the gate, and the weathered brick road that leads up to the gate.
The shamrock is a beautiful and also thoughtful symbol to wear to celebrate Irish pride on St. Patrick’s Day, as it is the national flower of Ireland. Items like:

In addition to serving as the Emerald Isle’s national flower, the shamrock is also a symbol of good fortune. It also has an especially close tie with St. Patrick’s Day because the famous patron saint, Saint Patrick, actually used the shamrock’s three heart-shaped leaves to teach the Holy Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of Christianity to Irish pagans.
For a hat that shows off the colors of the Irish flag, you will love the Irish Adult Tri Colour Cap. This cap features a small shield displaying the flag across the front panels, and a larger replica of the flag is displayed across the brim. Also called the Irish tricolor, the national flag of the Republic of Ireland comprises three vertical stripes of Kelly green, white, and orange. This flag was first flown on March 7, 1848 in Waterford City by Thomas Francis Meagher during the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848. Interestingly, the flag was a gift to Meagher from a group of French women who supported the Irish efforts. The flag symbolizes hope for unity between the Protestants and Roman Catholics, with the green stripe at the hoist representing the Roman Catholics, the orange stripe at the opposite end signifying the Protestant minority, and the white stripe in the center standing for the lasting peace between the two groups.
