  • Our story

    We want everyone to know about the ingenious Irish ideas and inventions that changed the world, and that there's more to Ireland than writers and Riverdance.

    Join one of our fascinating Dublin walking tours, come to one of our talks, or immerse yourself in one of our books -- you'll discover a whole new world, packed with stories of Ingenious Irish discoveries and inventions. Come and find out for yourself, why we're winning so many plaudits and awards.

    As experts in communicating science, we also help people to tell their own story, with media and communications training.
