Most Leprechaun legends can be traced back to the 8th century tales of water spirits. It is said that these spirits merged with a household fairy and developed a penchant for heavy drinking so no cellar was safe!
This is the most common of all Leprechaun myths which says that they find gold coins buried in the earth and store them all in a pot which is hidden at the end of a rainbow.
The Leprechaun is well known for their love of Irish music and dance. They’ll often hold Celi’s that can last for days. They're experts when it comes to playing the tin whistle, the fiddle, Bodhrán, and even the Irish harp.
Catching one of the wee folk is no easy task! They’re quick, smart, and have magic to vanish into thin air. It’s believed that if you’re lucky enough to catch a Leprechaun you'll get 3 wishes, but be careful what you wish for!
