Authentic Hand Knit - Gorgoued
This was a must do for me as I wanted a for real, authentic, hand-knit Aran Island sweater. Ran for generations, gladly spent money for a local business, it was hard to choose!!! Ladies were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful pieces of art, buy from them!
Quaint location, Local Handknits as well as the big brand knits, Great Personnel, and website!
We stopped here as part of a tour. It is located in Kilmurvey which is at the base of Dún Aonghasa (the hilltop fort). Although there are other "Aran" sweater stores at the pier, this one also features one-of-a-kind hand knit items by the proprietress Rosemary Faherty and her family who can trace their roots on the island to the 18th century. A must stop! She was so helpful and forthcoming with the history and the obvious pride that is put into the products they sell(btw-free worldwide shipping if you spend over 100 euros---not hard to do!). I just wish I had more time to browse, but thank goodness for their website which is under "aran island sweaters". I even emailed An Tuirne about I purse I'd seen that wasn't on the website and I'd foolishly not bought when I was there. They responded quickly and reassured me it would be in the package of other items! Wonderful service! The quality of their products goes without saying and you'll be supporting a local business as well as a handcraft that goes back generations.
Beautiful items, friendly staff.
