Aran Island Sweater Market: Just for the tourists
The Sweater Market is one of the first buildings visitors to Kilronan see. It houses a variety of sweaters of different colors and patterns - beware the stretching!
Here we purchased a few gifts but followed the advice of locals and avoided the wool products. There were patterned golf caps there that I still think of!
What to buy: Buy your sweaters elsewhere - I've posted a suggestion under "Tourist Traps."
Well the one shop ;-) Dunno the name!: Aran Sweaters
This shop is full of Aran Sweaters and other woolen jumpers so most tourists go home with 4 or 5 bags. Very strange!
What to buy: If you always wanted to have an Aran sweater this is paradise for you.
What to pay: Depends on the quality.
