This place is just full of original and quirky art demonstrating the quiet humour which abounds in this part of the world. Some lovely things to buy as a reminder of your visit to Rathlin

This is a real treat of a gift shop - lots of original local art, little treasures for every budget and owners with a great sense of humour. Forget the mass-produced stuff and get a meaningful memento!

It wasn't that big and the staff weren't in any way friendly like the rest of the reviews said. We didn't get any sort of response from them as they seemed to be too interested in chatting rather than giving any sort of acknowledgement or giving a passing hello.
Still a couple of nice things for sale, but we didn't buy anything.

We are just home from Rathlin and our last stop was a visit to Breakwater studio. A lovely shop and the owners are extremely friendly and willing to chat and offer advice.
I will be back and have a wish list in mind

We visited Rathlin Island during August. Although a cold rainy day, the welcome we got at Breakwater Studio was so warming. Yvonne Braithwaite the islands resident artist was so charming and helpful, with the most warming smile. Her art work is amazing, such a talent. The studio is an array of Yvonne's beautiful paintings, pottery, and various other items.
Yvonne took the time to speak with us, when the studio wasn't so busy. Her and her husband make a great team, and ooze the warmth that makes you want to return. We will be!
