Visit O’Brien’s Crafts & Knitwear for unique sweaters and gifts

Doolin, North Clare

Gift Shopping

Step inside the door of this bright and spacious shop, and you will see the work of some of Ireland’s talented artisans. 

Here, they pride themselves on highlighting products which are distinctive and original. They specialise in carrying high-quality, contemporary Irish-made sweaters for ladies and gents. Their knitwear suppliers include Fisherman Out of Ireland, Aran Woollen Mills, and Original Aran. 

They showcase woollen throws and blankets in many vibrant colour combinations from John Hanly & Co., Studio Donegal, and Aran Woollen Mills. 

In addition, you will find a wide array of accessories for both women and men. Amongst their independent Irish suppliers of woollen accessories is Breege Walsh, who works out of County Mayo. She crafts luxurious hats, wrist warmers, and felted flower brooches from fine merino lambswool. They also stock many Hanna Hats of Donegal in different styles and tweeds.

You will find an extensive display of specially chosen Irish Pottery and Ceramics. This pottery is handmade, both classic and contemporary. Some of the pottery is finished with a hand glaze which will take your breath away.  

The kiddies have their own section. They stock a range of cute sweaters, cardigans and accessories, soft cuddly toys, wooden jigsaw puzzles, and baby blankets. Alphabet Jigsaws produce original hand-crafted wooden jigsaw puzzles. Some designs are available in both the English and Irish language.

They are consistently striving to source products which are more sustainable and eco-friendly. One such producer is the Donegal Natural Soap Company. They are palm oil free certified, vegan friendly, and made from all-natural ingredients. These products include soap and shampoo bars, hand creams, gift sets and much more in bio-degradable packaging. 

They stock Irish jewellery, including Celtic-themed rings, pendants and earrings. You will also see handmade Irish designer pieces that mix old trends with new high-quality craftwork.

They showcase various gift ideas to suit all customer budgets and tastes. They have organic cotton t-shirts, hoodies, local artwork and more. 

Tax-free shopping is also available to non-EU customers. Staff are always at hand to help with your shop.
