This is a little yarn shop guide when holidaying in Ireland. This is definitely a literally little guide as I believe I have yet to discover all the yarn shops located in Ireland. But here are some places that I visited during my short trip. :)
When I was in Ireland, I went to a delightful yarn shop called This is Knit. This lovely yarn shop is located within the Powerscourt Centre, in central Dublin. My mission for the visit was to get Irish yarns. When I told my friend, Melita that I had to go to Ireland for work-related visit, she excitedly told me that I should buy some Irish yarns back. So I did just that. :)
Other yarns shops in Ireland that I visited:
Cork Wools - accessible via the English Market, Cork.
The yarn offering at Blarney Woolen Mills is actually pretty limited. However, if you want Aran jumpers and Irish gifts, this is the place to go to. They also have fantastic range of fashion from Irish brands. Definitely, worth a visit. :)
This is my yarn loot from the trip. I know it is pretty small to even be called a "loot" but keep in mind, I was traveling with my husband. So I had to be pretty reserved...;;^^
In keeping with the yarn and knit theme, I'll leave you with this humorous sign, spotted in This is Knit. I used to work in a wool shop and know that little hands can cause havoc in a yarn shop... but I love how polite and funny this sign is. ^^
