Features
Artisanal/handicrafts, Local designers and products

What started almost three centuries ago as a humble weaving shop (in the Wicklow village of the same name) is now a retail empire. The flagship store, just off Grafton Street, is still a great spot to pick up woven blankets, scarves, and throws—but also jewelry, clothes, and gifts from around Ireland and beyond. On the top floor, there’s an excellent café with a particularly strong breakfast menu. The pancakes come loaded with fresh blueberries, macadamia nuts, and fruit compote, and can be found on just about every table.
