Lots of stylish clothing items, mostly made from machine woven cloth and priced for American tourists. I did not see any hand-woven items but have been assured by Triona management (after my original review) that they have 2 full-time and 2 part-time hand weavers.

Visited with CIE/Long’s Travel NJ - same welcoming & helpfulness we first experienced in 2014. Irish Coffee served is a treat. Great selection and will take off VAT with Horizon Card - be sure to file at Airport.

We stumbled across Triona Design in Ardara because of the name. Our daughter Caitriona (Triona) never gets to see anything bearing her name, so we just had to stop in - an we were very glad we did! Inside, there is a mini tour of...More
