Knitting in the West of Ireland

On this superb 6-day knitting holiday enjoy workshops led by our expert and discover the stunning scenery, spirit and traditional crafts found on the west coast of Ireland. Included excursions explore the charming city of Galway, and visit Kylemore Abbey and the Leenane Sheep and Wool Centre, both nestled in the midst of Connemara’s rugged landscape. Knitting has been a part of Irish life since the 1600's when knitting schools were established across the country. Thanks to an abundance of wool it became a source of income for many households during the 18th century. With their distinctive design, Aran sweaters are a symbol of Ireland and our full day excursion to the smallest of the Aran islands is a chance to learn about Aran knitting the Inis Oírr way.
