Our Shannon fountain pen is named after the largest river in Ireland; this fountain pen will impress any connoisseur of fountain pen writing. Like a river of ink, the pen carries its user's thoughts and creativity from their consciousness to paper effortlessly.

Resting on a writing desk, nestled in a notebook or sitting staunchly on a writing pad on a meeting or board room table, this Shannon fountain pens design and the detail in the wood we used make it unique, a gift that will impress its user and will be noticed by those who see it in use. The gift you gave will be remembered every time this fountain pen is held and its ink flows.

We do not rush things in Ireland! We have crafted the pen using bog oak older than the Pyramids; this pen is more than 5,000 years in the making! The beauty of Bog Oak is in its feel and colour, so to ensure we don't mask that experience, we finish our pens in special oils that Bog Oak sculptors use to capture the essence of every minute of the 5,000 years of history in this pen.

The Shannon fountain pen is fitted with a German-manufactured bi-colour size six nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest of fountain pen users.

The fountain pen ink flows from an international standard-sized ink cartridge, readily available from all stationery shops worldwide. Open on this site also.

We also provide an ink pump with the pen; this pump allows bottled ink to be used in pen, fill the pump with your favourite bottled ink and insert it into the pen and you're ready to write.

Sustainability is high on everyone's agenda; by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill, you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfill every year.

Give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump; the only thing you don't use is the empty glass ink bottle that is recycled; how green is that?

      Perfect gift

      My sisters were born a few days apart which means every November I have to buy them birthday presents. I had bought other pens from Irish Pens and was so impressed with the quality and selection of their products as well as the wonderful customer service. So, I bought my sisters pens and they loved them. One sister lives outside of Ireland so it was particularly special to receive an wholly Irish-made product. She told me this morning that she can't wait to show off her pen to her work colleagues. The gift box really adds to the product and makes it look extra special. I cannot recommend Irish Pens highly enough. This was the seventh pen that I ordered from them.

      Thank you Nicola for your kind words and continued support for our little business, as you know every pen sale is very personal to us. Delighted your sisters are so happy with your thoughtful and creative gift. Richard

      Truly A Great Fountain Pen

      The pen looks fantastic, the weight feels good in the hand and it smells like old wood, a good thingy.
      The ink converters/ ink pumps are of superior quality. The Bock size #6 EFine nib writes really nice. I got an Ogham inscription and it adds that top shelf look to the pen.
      I recommend this pen maker and their great correspondence.
      Based on the pen I ordered, I believe all their pens are top shelf and worthy of being purchased.

      Hi Terence,
      Thank you so much for your feedback, I know how important these pens were to you and that makes your comments so special to us. Hope to meet up for a coffee when you are in Ireland next. Richard
