One of the greatest hidden gems in (Ardara) Donegal. Quality of tweeds outstanding. Colours of throws so vivid. A great investment. So great my husband and I had to purchase three. Products all reasonably priced.

Eddie is one of the last of the Weaber’s who weave by hand. Eddie was so patient at answering all our questions. His work is amazing. Where can you see a hand weaver in action? Exactly! Go!

Eddie has been weaving for longer than I've been alive. Every time we've visited Eddie has been very accommodating to show us the weaving process. His products are all hand made and of high quality. Always worth a visit.

Eddie Doherty is the man! Donegal is way up north, it feels remote, it's gorgeous, best of all, it's where Eddie Doherty lives. I say this because he will make these artistic, handwoven creations right in front of your eyes. He will describe how his...More
