    Avoca Handweavers: For lovers of really nice things...

    by Maryimelda Updated Nov 26, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Avoca Handweavers chain of shops is absolutely amazing.
    The chain started out as an outlet for local craft, most especially of the woollen variety and to this day you will find some of the most beautiful woollen scarves, blankets, jumpers, hats etc. You name it.

    Walking into any Avoca Handweavers shop is like walking into wonderland. These days the stock has stretched to candles, soaps, perfumes and lotions, fluffy toys souvenirs and fine foods.

    The original shop can still be found with a working mill in Avoca. Other branches are located on the Ring of Kerry and at Bray which is also in county Wicklow.

    My favourite is the one at Bray mainly because it is the biggest and has in addition to a fabulous selection of woollens and giftwares etc, the most sensational food hall you will probably ever find in all of Ireland. There is also a wonderful restaurant with a magnificent array of cakes and pastries as well as savoury meal items and sandwiches. Be prepared for a difficult time finding parking however.

    What to buy: You'll be hard pressed finding more beautiful blankets and other woollens anywhere else in Ireland.

    What to pay: The prices seem expensive but you get what you pay for and this stuff is the very best.
