Ballinahown Irish Designer Craft Village

Fodor's Review

Make time for a stop at this craft village, home to two separate and distinctive stores, Core Crafted Design and Celtic Roots Studio. Both sell distinctive local crafts, ranging from bog-oak sculpture to honey as well as an outstanding choice of ceramics, jewelry, glasswork, and textiles. It's the last village in Westmeath as you travel to Clonmacnoise. Core is based in the Old Schoolhouse, and Celtic Roots Studio is next door.
