At Joyce's you will find a unique selection of quality items: it was the best craft display of our whole two-week touring trip of the Wild Atlantic Coast. A delight. Colours, touch ... all splendid taste.

This place is right on the way to the Castle and has tons of stuff. Nothing really all that different but I did buy 2 pair of wool mittens that were great.
