“What a find”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We have stayed at the Ardeven B&B outside Donegal Village a few times. We were in search of good tweed that was not made in China and merely "assembled" in Ireland.

Sean, our host sent us to Ardara. We found only a couple of places. He told us we needed to walk the streets and really look. Next time we returned to Ireland we did.

Eddie's place didn't look like a business. The door was not locked but after we looked in it still didn't. Finally we walked in when we heard a sound. Eddie was at work on his 250 year old loom. His wife was sewing labels into a huge order for Orvis or LL Bean. We shopped and bought several great items made by Eddie. Really fun talking to those two!

Going back next month!
