Blarney Woollen Mills, Blarney

4.1
One of the premier manufacturers and retailers of Irish textiles, Blarney Woollen Mills produces Ireland's famous rope-knit sweaters. Other gifts, such as porcelain and linen, are also sold both at the shop and online. But the online store can't offer you the old-fashioned ambiance of the shop and mill. Housed inside a historic brick mill house, the attraction shares the property with a small hotel with ivy-covered walls. While the mill preserves the tradition of Irish crafts, it integrates the latest fashions into its sweater designs. Take a virtual tour of the attraction using the website, or stop by the storefront to browse the racks of well-crafted garments and collectibles.

  • Worthy to be visited once in Blarney is the structure of the Blarney Woollen Mills. The building seems already featured for being an exemplar of Anglo-Saxon architecture "industrial" or similar. The visitor who accesses the inside does not escape especially the succession of Irish clothes and wool clothing, alternating with gadgets, gifts and other accessories of various kinds which, however, recall the local crafts. The Interior of the shop is very organized, the staff was busy welcoming therein as diligent. Visit interesting even without purchasing anything special (except a t-shirt feature worth a few tens of euros).

  • Great shop, have everything that a tourist need: food, clothes, souvenirs... I always stop here long enough for my groups to have the time to eat at the cafeteria and have time to explore this amazing shop. Definitely worth the extra time!
  • Yes - its a big shop. If you are impressed with shops - this will probably impress you. I am told, one of the largest in Great Britain. For me - ho hum.
  • A quality place to buy Irish woolen products. There is a high selection for everyone and the service is good. Right next door is an excellent place to eat. Don't miss either.
  • The biggest Irish Gift store in the world reasonably priced. They will ship around the world for you for free when you spend €250 or more. A fabulous restaurant with a great menu next door. A tourist attraction so be prepared for the crowds as all the big tour buses call here as do the crowds from the cruise ships.
  • I like how cosy the place is. Very nice staff. The idea of free coffee top up lets you full of coffee.
