The Midlands Sights

Bear Essentials Ireland

Updated 04/28/2014

Fodor's Review

A fun stop for children of all ages, you can view the largest collection of teddy bears in Ireland here. Each bear is handcrafted in the workshop from the finest mohair. The Silver Bear Centre and gift shop is next door. There's a "Teddy Bear Hospital" onsite, where you can bring your damaged teddy for repair or redesign, and the shop also sells "My First Teddy", a baby bear for infants.
