We spent a considerable time in this treasure trove and bought all sorts of lovely things Jumpers sheepskin slippers, hats and scarves. The owners were very helpful and spent time telling us about the area and the family business. They even gave us two chocolate bars !We found similar items in other shops to be more expensive

We had a lovely pot of tea and apple pie. We were served promptly. The staff were friendly and we got a top up of hot water free.

Nice place we came across on our travels, if you get a seat by the window you have added bonus of a nice view down the water. Food was good and tasty.

Great stop! Learned a lot and had great gifts for purchase. The owner even called over to the nearby restaurant to see if they had oysters for us!

If you want to learn anything about sheep this is the place to stop. They have a very interesting video that is informative. There is a person there to teach you about weaving. The gift shop was very busy. It was a good place to stop.

My wife and I made a stop while making a scenic drive between Westport and Galway. It's in a beautiful location -- the town of Leenaun is worth stopping for pictures on its own. The center itself has some interesting information and very helpful staff. However, the selection of goods is fairly standard and somewhat more expensive than you'll find... More
