Weavers of Ireland Quay Street / Blakes Castle

This Irish gifts / fashion brand opened their second Galway city store in mid-October 2023 - unfortunately just as the road outside is being dug up to fix issues with the tiled paths.

They're located on the ground floor shop next to Blake's Castle, on the corner of Quay Street and Kirwan's Lane.  This was a Costa cafe prior to the Covid-closedown in 2020, and remained closed until a local company purchased the building and did a very tasteful job renovating it as a retail store.    This building  is just around the corner from their original store in Quay Lane - and immediately opposite the Aran Sweater Mart shop.

Aimed mainly at tourists, many of their products make beautiful gifts for locals too:  they include a wide range of woven clothing, caps and hats, ponchos and capes, scarves blankets, tweeds, cushions, throws - from some of Ireland's best known weaving specialists including Mucros Weavers, Branigan Weavers, Jack Murphy, Jimmy Hourihan, Aran Sweater Mart, Dubarry Of Ireland, Foxford Woollen Mills, Celtic Tweeds, John Hanly & Co, Kerry Woollen Mills and more.

Open seven days a week, exact hours to be advised.

A few days after opening - Weavers of Ireland signs installed on their most-recently-opened woven store in Galway city centre.
