As an Irish native it is rare that I would find in a 'tourist' shop anything that I would want to buy for myself. There were lots here. Great light space with well laid out beautiful local desiger/makers products.

An interesting collection of local craft and artisan goods. If you are looking for quality clothing or that special something from Donegal then this is a good place to look. Prices are not cheap but they can be justified by the quality.
