The sweeping vistas from the Wild Atlantic Way are one of the highlights of any visit to Ireland. Experience them without car rental hassles on this convenient day trip from Galway. Stop at Roundstone village and Patrick Pearse’s cottage en route for Connemara National Park or Kylemore Abbey. From dramatic scenery to postcard-friendly villages, it’s perfect for nature lovers.

I attended a 1 day basket making with Ciarán Hogan recently. It was a fantastic, full on day where you created your own bread basket under the watchful eye of Ciarán who is both a great teacher and craftsman!

Set out like a colourful traditional village this is a attraction in itself and we were immediately drawn in. With a beautiful sea view the position is perfect. There is a collection of local craftspersons operating out of the Studios including art, glass, ceramics and basket weaving. We just loved the whole creative vibe and yes, stocked up on gifts to bring back to Australia. We were so excited to see such lovely, thoughtful and though provoking work. And there is a lovely little cafe with excellent coffee and cake ( and lovely lunches too !)

This was just the most amazing experience. Ciaran grew up steeped in Willow.. his father being the famous joe Hogan of Lough na Fooey. His knowledge, expertise, and willingness to share are second to none. Everyone in the class is assisted with individual attention and delicacy..his eagle eye spotting problems and correcting gently with encouragement, endless patience and Humour. The shop and workshop are a crafter's dream, surrounded by sheaves of Willow of every hue and the wood-burning stove blazing, not to mention the'Real French Coffee' breaks, and the fabulous lunches in the neighbouring Builin cafe. I cant recommend this highly enough.

Saw this place online before heading to Galway and I was not disappointed. I wanted to buy sooo many things but I'm using it as an excuse to go back! Andrea Rossi 's studio, the glass studio and the coin/jeweller were my favourites. Some were closed but it is definitely worth stopping here to pick up some hand crafted Irish gifts for yourself or a friend
