Meet the new look Irish Country Magazine


Irish Country Magazine is celebrating 10 years in print! To mark this milestone, we are delighted to unveil our new look


There is always an air of excitement as a new issue of Irish Country Magazine hits shop shelves, but this time around, we have even more reasons to celebrate. It is hard to believe it, but Irish Country Magazine first launched a decade ago. For 10 years, we have been profiling intriguing Irish women, introducing you to the best of Irish across design, travel and food, and so much more.

The variety and standard of content is never going to change, but we did want to breathe new life into the pages of the magazine. We want the name Irish Country Magazine  to leap out at you from the shelf.

And so you will notice that every page of the May | June issue has been given a complete refresh. The new design ensures that all of that fascinating content and stunning photography that our readers love has more space to shine. The magazine is easier to navigate, with distinct sections that flow nicely, so that you can find your favourites with ease and relish your time curled up with your copy of the magazine.
