What an outstanding selection and the staff was superb! You cannot miss this stop. The view to the ocean is also nice. We bought a lot of our gifts from here and will stop every time we visit Ireland. Thank you for great customer service and selection!!!

We visited many woolen shops during our two week visit to Ireland. This place had a very good selection and prices. They ship for free if you spend over $100. They take the Horizon card. The staff was helpful, not pushy. Don't wait for the next store it will not be better than this place. Buy here.

Stopped here as part of a bus tour! Since I did not come to Ireland to shop, this was not my favourite stop! However, I must say the items in the store were quality. Whether is was clothing, jewelry, tableware or candy, the quality seemed very good to excellent. Some of the Belleek china was cheaper here than at the... More

We stopped here after a visit to the craft shops just up the road. They have a great collection of all Irish themed souvenirs, if you're looking for it (and it's Irish) they probably have it. Their prices were competitive with others I had seen on my trip. Worth a stop.

Located very close to the Spiddal caft and design studios, but offering a different experience. A huge choice of products, many on sale when visiting (July 15).

My family and I visited in early June and found so many lovely items in this shop, not the least of which was meeting and chatting with Mr. and Mrs. Standun. We found lovely sweaters and an array of beautiful souvenirs and all were shipped home so we didn't have to bother with finding a way to pack everything. Mrs.... More
