Social media can be a fantastic tool to discover new things and to gain information of events and topics. It can also be a brilliant tool at bringing people from around the world together and making the world a tiny bit smaller.
One of the best social media platforms to get inspiration from is Instagram. The social media platform is a photo sharing network which can be used particularly well to get inspiration on food and gardens, not to mention on travel and places to visit.
Below are five Irish Instagram accounts that everyone should be following:
