The sheep and wool centre, on our visit appeared to be largely just a shop for tourist items. There is a very small 'museum' attached, charging 5 euros to enter, involving a video about the local wool industry, and a demonstration of some wool spinning with some information boards. The museum only really consists of one room and is a... More

Nice shop and good restaurant. Relatively nice food in the restaurant/cafe. Good service,okay price,nice food (delicious brownie not sure about the others). A bit slow service but you can endure it if you aren't in a rush. The shop is nice and there's nothing else to say about it.

Can't really review the museum or shop as we just dropped in here for a quick coffee but when we saw the selection of cakes available we couldn't resist sampling a few. It was tough to choose but the apple pie and gluten free orange cake were delicious and very good value. The coffee was good, the staff were very... More

Well worth a visit. There's a gift shop, restaurant and museum/history of wool exhibition. The food is good, reasonably priced and served with a smile. The center has the feel of a family run business and the staff are friendly and full of local knowledge. The place is clean and well kept, always a good starting point, the owners obviously... More

We stopped here for lunch while driving through the area. You walk through a shop selling irish gift souvenirs etc as the cafe is at the back. We ordered two coffee's, two sandwiches & one tomato&basil soup. I was surprised as the cost was quite reasonable for a tourist area. The quality of food was excellent & I would certainly... More

We had been holidaying in Ireland and found ourselves in Leenane and stopping in front of the Sheep and Wool shop. In the back of the shop is the most pleasant find that you could make, a lovely bistro type place where the staff are lovely and welcoming and the food is gorgeous. Very accommodating to families and all food... More

This is a small family owned center. Highly informative and well done. Loved Orla's presentation. Great gift shop and café. Loved their note on the chalkboard in the café: "we do not have WIFI. Please put your phones away and talk to each other".
