Family owned and operated, The Irish Gift House was established in Tempe, Arizona by Kerry O'Neal-Costanzo and Andrew Costanzo in 1994.

Prior to opening their Irish gift store, Kerry had been employed by her dear friend Lorraine Flynn, the owner of Irish Imports at Flynn's which was the original Irish store in Arizona. Kerry had initially meet Mrs. Flynn years earlier while searching for an Irish gift for her mother, Pauline (O'Hearon) O'Neal. 

Mrs. Flynn eventually retired and closed her store and with her encouragement Kerry and Andrew opened The Irish Gift House in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe.

The Irish Gift House quickly became one of the leading sources of fine Irish merchandise and Celtic jewelry. In 2005 we added on-line sales and in 2013 we transitioned to an all on-line store.  
The move to all on-line sales has proven to be very beneficial as both Kerry and Andrew are each blessed with a parent in their nineties and their required attention would not be possible if the traditional store had remained open. 

The Irish Gift House stocks the world's largest collection of over 9,000 different Irish goods that includes Claddagh rings and Celtic crosses. After 23 years in business The Irish Gift House's mission statement is still simple; we treat you like we would like to be treated. Neither Kerry or Andrew have college degrees, but both express an entrepreneurial spirit that has created several successful business ventures that has so far culminated with The Irish Gift House.

Kerry O'Neal Costanzo is a native of Phoenix, Arizona and was raised by a mother and father who instilled an appreciation for her Irish heritage. 

Andrew Costanzo is a native of Ridgewood, New York; while a child his family moved to Arizona. Andrew is of Italian descent who was fortunate to marry a pretty Irish lass who dreamed of owning an Irish store. 

Through The Irish Gift House we have been active with the Arizona Law Enforcement Emerald Society and over the years have raised and donated almost $40,000.00 for the families of fallen officers and firemen. Most of the proceeds have been generated through t-shirt sales, including the Irish Pubs of Arizona T-shirt.
