Irish Instagram Accounts: Who You Need To Follow
February 25, 2018 (No Comments) by Olivia Virlan

Since its launch in 2010, Instagram has become the most sought after mobile app, reaching 500 million daily users. It’s known as one of the best platforms for celebrities and social influencers to engage with their fans and for ordinary people to share their favourite pics.

We’ve all become too familiar with the insta-food pics, the “OOTD” (outfit of the day) pics and the dog pics which seem to flood our Instagram feeds, or maybe just mine.

But given the sheer number of accounts, it’s hard to get away from the tedious posts, which is why I’ve done my research to find some of the best Irish Instagram accounts to follow. From beauty to food, and photography of the best scenery Ireland has to offer, there’s something to enjoy for all Instagram lovers.
