My husband and I went out of our way to stop here. There was not an actual address but did have the town name. How hard could it be, right? Celtic Roots did not show up on our gps but off we went. In town there was a shop Tea Shop and Crafts, I think that was the name. I didn't want to ask there where to find another craft shop. It seemed to me a bit tacky. First day we went through the town and except for the above nada, zilch, nothing. We then continued on to Athlone. Next day the same passed through the town on the way to another site. Heading back to our hotel, being stubborn, we again found ourselves in Ballinahowen. This time I asked at the PO. I was then told what I was looking for was, in fact, the Tea Room and Craft Shop. No mention on Celtic Roots except on a side door which stated its hours . Yep, it closes at 5:00 it was then 5:05. I gave a 5 star rating because I peeked in the window and it looked super.

My husband was looking for a place with unique, authentic Irish jewelry before our trip to Ireland and found Celtic Roots Studio. From the website "Celtic Roots Studio, situated in the craft village of Ballinahown, combines a workshop and gallery space with an interpretative centre and display of historic artefacts made from bogwood.
In the Celtic Roots Studio shop, Helen stocks not only their own work but also the work of other artists & craft makers. Many are Irish but there are a number of European makers’ works to be found too."

We stopped in and met with Helen and viewed all of her beautiful bogwood jewelry and have settled on her making a unique piece for me. She welcomed and honored my ideas while adding her artists' eye to make it even more special. I could have walked away with many MANY other items from the shop but kept myself in check.

You won't find generic Irish gifts here but if you are on the lookout for something unique and authentic, this is the place for you.
