  • The little winding road that leads to the workshop is like a mini pilgrimage . Once a small primary school at the edge of Dingle bay, it's now the place where these divine leather goods are produced ....  more »

  • There happened to be a Holden Leather goods display in the hotel where we stayed in Dingle (Dingle Skellig). I was immediately awestruck by the craftsmanship and knew I needed to learn more. On our drive about town, we followed the Holden Leather Goods signs down a long and winding road to the workshop that also has a storefront. Hidden gem is right! Conner Holden greeted us, offered us coffee and entertained us with his wit and knowledge. He's obviously kissed the Blarney Stone because he has the gift of the gab. (It didn't hurt that he's also super handsome.) But he's not just an incredibly charming Irishman, his work is exceptional. Skip the in-town store and go to the workshop. It's a beautiful drive off the beaten path and you will have an excellent experience. I walked out with a beautiful cross-body bag (changing my mind on color at the very last minute without any fuss), my husband got a wallet, and my son got a shamrock shaped leather key chain. Worth every euro! And as an added bonus, Conor printed out and explained the VAT return so all we had to do was drop the form at the VAT desk in the airport. This day was a highlight of our week-long trip to Ireland. I'd give it 10 stars if Google would allow!
  • Popped in to buy a wallet I saw in town. The place smelled amazing and the build quality of the wallet was outstanding. Everything is handmade, so its a premium price but well worth it! I will have this wallet for life
  • Finding Holden Leather goods as we drove the Dingle peninsula was extraordinarily magnificent. This beautiful leather shop and workplace is a hidden gem and the owner Conner Holden is simply entertaining, knowledgeable and talented. His shop is truly amazing and the quality of his work exceptionable. You will not be disappointed if you are looking for excellent leather products. A Hidden gem.
  • Great place to get genuine leather hand made beautiful things.
  • We were visiting Ireland over the St Patrick's day holiday and decided to stop in Dingle on a drive. While looking for a parking spot, I saw the Leathergoods store and decided to stop in for a look. What a pleasant surprise!!! Not only were the items in the store beautiful, they were well designed and the assistance we received in the store was amazing! Helpful, willing and happy to see you! They not only have great bags for ladies, unique IPad/phone/tablet covers, but also beautiful bound books for the office! We ordered some speciality items and are happy awaiting their arrival! This shop;is worth the trip!

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.
