Expensive but very good quality. And the sales person was very nice. The caps are not too expensive.

Hugh is a character, the kind of character you hope to find when you stop at a little shop in Ardara on a dreary December day. A few doors down is Nancy's Pub, which is another place you don't want to miss in Ardara. Shopping...More

Hi, I would like to join the queue of admirers of Campbell' of Ardara. I will just attach a copy of my email to Hugh to show how much we enjoyed his shop and the town of Ardara. Hello Hugh, I'm the girl (woman) you sent to the kitchen to try on my sweater (and to wash a few dishes while I was there!) My friend Maureen and I were there visiting from San Francisco. Since I got back I can't go anywhere without wearing my little green Out Of Ireland sweater and my little cap! They are together the funnest and most admired things I've every had - in my LONG life! And that's long!! How are you? And when are you coming to San Francisco for a visit? I must say that was the most fun trip I've had to Ireland in 20 years! And I go every year! And most of the fun was in Ardara. What a great little town. You are so lucky to live there. Drop me a line and let me know how you are and what outrageous things you are up to! Much love …
