I'm a knitter myself and was disappointed that the "handmade" sweaters in most Dublin shops are knitted on a machine. Then I happened to walk by Cleo and stopped in. Cleo actually has hand knitted items with beautiful designs, some very traditional and others not...More

Cleo is a little away from the heart of Dublin shopping on and near Grafton Street, but definitely worth seeking out. Good location on Kildare Street near the Shelburne Hotel, St. stephen's Green and the Irish National Museum. Over 20 years or so, I have...More

A lovely little shop with lots of wonderful knits! I purchased some super soft mittens to keep my hands warm on a damp, spring day.

A tucked-away beauty. Hand knits of top quality. Lush colors. Miwa, our salesperson, is charming and knowledgeable. Must see...and buy!
