Very nice hand made items by local craftsmen. This year we picked up two very neat festival posters we had signed by the artist. Recommend stopping by the store for interesting items and to meet the local artist who is on hand.

This is a nice shop to visit if passing through Ballyshannon. It is a co-op of different local artists which is cool. Other than that, surprisingly little to do in the birthplace of star Rory Gallagher.
