Killybegs International Carpet Making and Fishing Centre

  • Industrial Site/Mill/Factory

Updated 04/28/2014

Fodor's Review

High-quality hand-knotted and hand-tufted carpets are produced at this factory to order: a square foot costs around €186. Visitors are welcome to commission a piece, but examples of the carpets are not sold off the peg. In the fishing center—refurbished in 2012—interpretative panels take you through a detailed history of the fishing industry in Killybegs; local fishermen (when not hauling in the catch) will show you how to mend nets and recount some fishy tales.

For €1 you can play with the Ship Simulator and steer your own boat through the tricky waters of the harbor.
