The tour was very interesting! Certainly the sipping of Irish coffee while we watched the weaving was tasty and enjoyable! I love my cape - several ladies bought capes and one gentleman bought a blazer - well worth the money ;)

Irish House is located right on the Donegal Diamond. It offers a variety of high quality woolen goods from the region. The staff were professional and helpful during our visit.

Visited here as part of our tour. We were shown how the garments are weaved and given a complementary glass of Irish Whisky. I eventually bought a woolen sweater and my wife, 2 scarves. Great place to visit and spend your Euros
