A land of heather hills and silver streams, and a sanctuary for the nature lover, County Wicklow is a realm of majestic mountains and breathtaking scenic beauty. At the heart of this land lies historic Glendalough, a valley of two lakes, imbued with the spirituality of its monastic settlement founded in the sixth century by St. Kevin that later became a university city of European significance.

The Woollen Mills lie east of the monastic ruins, just outside Laragh Village on the scenic Rathdrum Road.

A quaint stone bridge over the Glendalough River takes you to the 200 year old granite buildings - a leafy oasis of great charm of Derrybawn mountain.

Here you will find one of the Ireland's finest collections of tweeds, hand knits, jewellery and craft items.

The Hand Knits are produced from Wicklow wool and made by local knitters in both traditional and contemporary styles. A range of excellent loomed sweaters is also available.

Designed with flair and superbly finished, the woolen and tweed garments will look the part for any occasion or at the office. These natural fabrics are hard wearing and their classic lines will ensure enduring elegance.

The loom at the Woollen Mills weaves a wide variety of blankets in a palette of wonderfully subtle colours reflecting the Glendalough landscape in all its seasonal moods.
