11 of our favourite stylish Irish kitchens on Instagram

By Aoife Valentine Secor 30-01-2019

If you follow our #myhouseandhome hashtag on Instagram, you know there's an abundance of gorgeous Irish homes on Instagram.

We know Pinterest is great for aspirational home decor inspiration, and while that has its place, we like to keep it a little more real around here where possible, so today we're shining a light on some Irish kitchens that may feel that bit closer to home. With a huge mix of styles on the hashtag, you won't be scrolling too long before you find someone who matches your style.

It goes without saying, if these Irish kitchens take your fancy, you can probably be guaranteed the rest of their houses are pretty solidly decorated too, so you can click through and follow for more!


If you missed out on @oldvictoriannew's real home tour, you should make it your business to catch up! We love how super slick his kitchen is, and the colour speaks for itself, but you better believe the rest of Darren's house is equally as stylish.

I've been asked by people for advice on how to improve the visibility of their accounts so yesterday I put tips and information on my stories on how to be be "seen" and also information on other things like how the algorithm works and what bots are etc. A piece  of information I shared about bots was not suggesting people use them but informing you as to what they are but I didnt mention underneath this information that it's against Instagrams policies and T&Cs to use bots and Instagram can disable or terminate your account for violating their community guidelines for doing so. . . I've grown my account organically from day one and it didnt actually grow that much until last August when one of my photos showed up on the Explore page and another two weeks later. Since then there have been five in total and my followers are now from around the world and not just the UK and Ireland. I use popular hashtags and take photos I love and thats worked for me but to use bots is not something I've ever considered and would never recommend anyone use them either. Enjoy your day everyone xx . . . . #interiorinspiration #interiorwarrior #interiors123 #kitcheninspo #modernrustic #homesofinstagram #interiordesign #myhouseandhome #apartmenttherapy #instaliving #jungalowstyle #myinterior #myhousebeautiful #interiorstyling #instahome #sodomino #pocketofmyhome #homedecorideas #interiors4all #designsponge #originmagazine #interiorboom #myhyggehome #smallspaceliving #mybohoabode #eclecticdecor #nestandthrive #interiormilk #homeinspiration #bohointeriors

Breakfast Time - Happy Saturday! Day 6. is “matching pair” for #myhouseandhome. Here’s our twinny tractor seats, coldly on the holey but definitely they look the part. You can find all sorts of weird & wonderful in a salvage yard & these were a bargain. Got our red salvage brick for the island from there too so did the whole lot on a tiny budget. . Better get back at it or my pooch will get there 1st - eyes off the prize Bruce👀🥞 . . . . . . #myhousethismonth #breakfastbar #kitchenisland #kitchenlighting #kitchendesign #kitchendesignideas #lovetohome #apartmenttherapy #interior123 #allthingsmetric #realhomes #actualinstagramhomes #pocketofmyhome #cornerofmyhome #interior4all #howihome #myinteriorstyletoday #atmine #homeinteriorsdaily #nesttoimpress #myhousethismonth #whiteinteriors #interieuraddict #sorealhomes #yourautumnvibe #dogsindecor #retrieverlove #retrieveroftheday #labradorretriever

We loved @behind.theyellowgate's kitchen since we saw it during our real home tour of her gaff, but it was even more impressive when we realised the limited budget she pulled it together with. Read her budget breakdown story here.

A wet and windy Saturday, soccer has been cancelled so its a lazy morning of pjs, pancakes, and a rerun of 'Room on the Broom' (thank you @rteplayer). I have a day of cleaning planned but for now it can wait...... * Day 3 of @houseandhomemagazine November photochallenge - KITCHEN SPACE * #myhouseandhome #myhometrend #walltowallstyle #dailydecordetail #mydiymydecor #sorealhomes #mycreativeinterior #myinteriorvibe #eclecticinteriors #eclecticallymade #mystoryindecor #spotlightonmyhome #myseasonalrevamp #mystylishspace #myspaceanddecor #mycuratedaesthetic #irishhomes #irishinteriors #irishinteriordesign #myperiodhomestyle #newinteriorsontheblock #nesttoimpress #myhomevibe #apartmenttherapy #rockinteriors #myinspiringinterior #nestandthrive #kitcheninspo #thebrighthome #myinteriorstyletoday

Perfect proof that you can mix old and new and come up with something ideal for the space, @vintagehillcork's kitchen is gorgeously bright and airy, built with form and function in mind, and packed with personality.

We are in a full on love affair with @6highstreet's gorgeous bright and airy kitchen. The wood makes the space feel warm rather than clinically bright and the greenery and gold accents finish the room off beautifully.

This pic got the mostest love in 2018! It is by far the most used room in our house and it most certainly does not look like this right now 🤣 . . 2018 saw far less posting... And lots of changes with baby starting big school and mamma going back to work. Despite the changes our house stayed pretty much the same. Floors due to be painted in 2019 and gardens to be tackled... Let's hope 2019 brings all everyone hopes for and more 🤞🙏🙌❤️❤️❤️ . . #myhouseandhome #myhousethismonth #mydiymydecor #dailydecordetail #sorealhomes #howivintage #myinteriorvibe #iplanteven #houseplantclub #myeclecticshack #newyear #walltowallstyle #colourmyhome #myhyggehome #myhomevibe #kitcheninspo #cottageliving #whiteinteriors #thehappycasa #modernboho #darkdecor #myeclecticmix #styleitpretty #industrial #irishinteriors #apartmenttherapy

Another Cork-based kitchen, @gillderiu's mix of industrial pieces with what is otherwise a gorgeous, traditional kitchen is right up our street. For more from Gill, you can check out her insta-worthy tips over on her Room with a View.



@Frieda_100's kitchen was originally dark and dingy, but it was worth sticking with until she could install the extension of dreams to house a new kitchen, and what a kitchen it is! Check out her full renovation story here.

Have been MIA for the past 2 weeks with what I hope will be the end to this build finally! We had to have most of the kitchen/dining area re plastered and part of the ceiling replaced and I will honest to God kill with my own bare hands the next builder who says we have to have anymore work done or more fittingly, work re done 😡 On a lighter and much happier note though painting is to finally commence next week and look, look I can now show you the rest of the brick you have all so kindly asked to see ❤ Can I get a whoop whoop! 😁 Have plenty of playing around to do with what goes where but have dressed it all up as nicely as I can for now. On the second pic I wanted to give you all a little view of the pantry (if you can see it!) I created to the left of the sink area. It is floor to ceiling and I have integrated the fridge/freezer in it too. Will show you more as soon as the painting is done, that is in the new part of the kitchen where the ceiling is much higher. Hope you're all enjoying this lovely Friday evening wherever you are ❤ *** Have to edit and add before I forget that light fitting you see my wonderful other half made from scratch and I couldn't be prouder!

You really can't beat exposed brick in any room in a house, but it's particularly special in a kitchen we feel. We love that @houseoffourwinds has let it shine by opting for opening shelving and a minimal extractor fan rather than covering it up with cabinetry.



Those gold stools - we're obsessed! @Myoldbrandnewhome recently renovated her kitchen and we can't resist a deep blue kitchen press.



Did we mention dark kitchens are a forever fave for us? @mydarkhome_'s is up there, and not just because of her amazing puppers. We love the small details like the chalkboard wall paired with the open shelving and retro style accessories. See more of Eniko's home in her real home tour here.

Extra storage Day 22 - @houseandhomemagazine and @thelodgeashford . The island contains all these drawers , 3 are dummy drawers as behind them holds the disposal and sink. So you can only imagine how many junk drawers I have. Who else has a drawer for “everything” ?? The drawer you look in to find something when it’s lost. It probably ends up being the most important drawer in the house. . . . . . . . . . . . #myhouseandhome #mykitchenmyhappyplace #mykitchendrawer #mykitchenstories #irishinteriors #inmydomaine #myhomestyle #momathome #interior124 #interior1234 #kitchensofinsta #kitchensofinstagram #kitchenisland #kitchenstorage #whitekitchencabinets #interior12follow #theeverygirlcooks #housebythewhitethorns #irishhomes #newbuildhome #mygorgeousgaff #beautifulirishinteriors #naturalstonetile #beehivedoorknobs #littlegreenepaintcompany #littlegreenepaint

All white kitchens are a classic for a reason, and when you have the space like @housebythewhitethorns does, why not go all out? Her smart cabinetry includes dummy drawers to disguise some unwanted kitchen appliances, too.
