Workhouse Shop

The Irish Workhouse Centre is delighted to announce the launch of our craft shop.


We now stock a range of handmade cards, scented candles, knitted goods and the wonderful, felt & silk scarves of bombyxMORI.


The best part is that all the crafts come from a 10 minute radius! No air miles. No mass-production. Just a unique range of gifts to bring home.


We also stock an eclectic range of books. The most recent addition to our catalogue is the book by Dublin-writer Michael Noctor [pictured], ‘Gaelic Screams’, which was launched at the centre last July.


In addition to Michael’s publications, other titles include ‘The Hunger House’ by Conor McGuire, ‘The Truth behind the Irish Famine’ by Jerry Mulvihill, and books by outstanding local writers Margaret Hickey, John Joe Conwell, and Maureen Cahalan.


Please note that currently the shop is cash only. Feel free to contact us for more information.
