Oh My Mellow - Moon and Mellow Blog
The countdown is on until the clocks go forward on Sunday. And don’t fret about losing an hour’s sleep – these treats will put a spring in your step.


 Anja and Brian Root and Branch Podcast
PODCASTING Root & Branch
Podcasts of an environmental nature aren’t generally cheerful, in fact they can often have the reverse effect by making you feel even more anxious about pending doom.
Not so this six-part RTÉ lyric fm series, co-hosted by broadcaster and ecologist Anja Murray and Ye Vagabonds musician Brían Mac Gloinn. Rather than lament our losses, the pair celebrate the lives and roles of Ireland’s native trees by meeting those who conserve them, from bat experts to archaeologists.
As Murray explains, “this series is an homage to trees, each episode brings together ecology, history, music and song, to create a portrait of each tree”, namely birch, hazel, holly, willow, ash and oak, with Mac Gloinn composing odes to each and every one. Pat down your PJs, savour that morning coffee and enjoy.


Lodestars Anthology Ireland
BROWSING Lodestars Anthology Ireland
Pent-up demand for overseas holidays is in full swing and while there’s nothing more glorious than flicking through a beautifully crafted travel magazine for inspiration, we’re intrigued to see Lodestars’ homage to Ireland, released this month.
Each issue is dedicated to a different country and contains around 20 stories centred on food, culture and nature. The Ireland issue promises to be very much about people and connections, with featured destinations including Adare Manor, Cnoc Suain, Inis Meáin Restaurant and Suites, The Black Castle, Fernwood Farm, Finn Lough and Haddington House. 
Wherever I lay my Moon + Mellows that’s my home… and, sure, don’t we all need ideas on where to staycation?


Airbnb Porto
That said… who wouldn’t fantasise about a mini-break to Porto? With two new weekly direct flight routes from Shannon launching on March 26, adding to the seven weekly flights from Dublin, Portugal’s increasingly cool hotspot is tempting indeed.
Check out this rosy two-bed townhouse on Airbnb, the Casa Da Praça owned by Superhosts Elói, Joana and João. What it lacks in views over the river Douro it more than makes up for in utter fabulousness.
Craft Cocktails
SIPPING Craft Cocktails Green Street Sour Limited Edition
St Patrick’s Day may already be a distant, perhaps hazy, memory but the green wave continues with Craft Cocktails’ Green St Sour, created by Ivana Marešić of Dublin’s BAR 1661 and back my popular demand. Two parts strong, one part sweet, and one part sour, its blend of Cocalero botanical spirit, melon, aloe vera, and citrus is simply lip smacking.
Still, if the idea of drinking something pond-coloured is a turn-off, there are many other brews to try, from Mezcal Margaritas to Whiskey Sours to Pornstar Martinis to Aviations, expertly mixed and delivered to your front door.
Poetic Vista Luxury Cotton Pyjamas Moon + Mellow

DRESS CODE: The Long Set in Poetic Vista 

Hello spring, is that you? While we’re not quite ready for our strappy Bow Cami Sets (brrrr!), this season we’re all about the hand-painted blossom print of Moon + Mellow’s Poetic Vista long set pyjamas. 

Slouchy on the hip, deep-pocketed and in the softest 100 per cent organic cotton voile, this two-piece puts us in mind of springtime cherry blossom and Willow Pattern as seen through rose-tinted glasses.
