Some beautifully hand crafted blackthorn sticks, clubs, walking sticks and even wands, Harry Potter style! Owners very friendly and knowledgable about history of the area and further afield which was patiently shared with us. A lovely shop to visit even for Irish people!

On our trip to Ireland in 2015, my husband looked everywhere for an authentic Irish "walking stick" with no success. As we prepared for our trip in March 2017, I was determined to locate one for him. After some digging/googling, I came across an article...More
