A good visit especially on a wet day. Reasonably priced, friendly staff and good parking. Unique skills in carpet weaving by hand in 2016. Working & "Antique" hand-looms.

A lovely friendly team of people looking after a fascinating little bit of history. They more than went the extra mile by finding a DVD that was relevant to my visit to Killybegs.
