Kourtney Kardashian has just shared an Irish company's heartwarming product on her social media accounts.

The reality TV star posted a photo to Snapchat of a miniature door from The Irish Fairy Door Company.

Mother-of-three Kourtney showed the blue door with her son Mason's name on it, alongside a note reading: "Dear Mason, Happy birthday! Love, the Tooth Fairy."

The Irish Fairy Door Company shared their delight with the post on their Facebook page, saying: "Look what just happened! Kourtney Kardashian just featured one of OUR fairy doors on her Snapchat story!! And breathe..."

Speaking to Independent.ie, Niamh Sherwin Barry, director of the company, said that Kourtney's post was "a total surprise."

"This time last year we sent three doors to Kourtney for her children and two to her sister Kim, but we weren't sure whether they got them because of the number of people products have to go through before they reach the celebrity."

"So I was in the gym this morning and my friend text me saying I needed to go on Snapchat immediately. I didn't even have Snapchat, so I made an account and nearly fell over when I saw that Kourtney had shared our doors."

"It's a total dream come true. Money can't buy it," she said.

The Irish Fairy Door Company was founded in August 2013 by Niamh, her husband Oisin Barry and husband and wife Aoife and Gavin Lawler.

"Back in 2013 we were hit by the recession really badly," said Niamh.

"We ultimately lost everything. We lost our home, we lost our car. We had absolutely no money."

It was when Niamh and Aoife saw small shapes that looked like doors on a trip to America and they sat down with their husbands that the idea came to mind.

"We didn't have a spare €10 between us," she said.

"My mum had given up smoking and kept all of the money she saved from not smoking, around €9000. We were on the verge of emigration and she said to us 'take it.'"

"We set up our page on August 28th 2013 and it has snowballed since then. The company was a shining light."

"The fairy doors bring imagination and magic back to children in a world where they're constantly looking at a screen."

"Kourtney sharing our product is beyond our wildest dreams. The next challenge is to crack America and this will help massively."

The Irish Fairy Door Company "helps fairies relocate into homes and gardens all over the world by producing high quality Irish fairy doors."

The door that Kourtney featured retails for €24.95 and is available from theirishfairydoorcompany.com.
