We went to the shop in Ardara and found the shop really friendly. They do demonstrations on the looms at the back and there is a full size weaver's cottage there too. The woollen goods they sell are stunning.

This was a very interesting demonstration. I now have a greater admiration for the craftspeople that still hand weave these gorgeous fabrics. Most everyone will enjoy this fun stop.

Very nice tweeds and sweaters. They have an old weaving machine that they use for demonstrations on how tweed is woven. Staff is friendly but not pushy. They serve Irish coffee while you shop which was a nice touch. Wide selection of wool sweaters too
