A good start is half the work.

Connemara and the Aran Islands have always been synonymous with the arts and particularly crafts. From the world famous  hand knit Aran Sweater to the distinctful green of Connemara Marble, the tradition of craft making has evolved over centuries and continues to thrive in 21st century Connemara and Aran Islands.

Here at Secret Connemara, we can tailor make a personal and unique experience with a select number of artists and craftspeople each showcasing their work and produce. From wool producers using traditional working methods to the Aran hand knitters remaining true to their ancestors patterns.  From weavers to woodturners and basket to bodhrán makers, there is no better way to see these uniquely crafted works of Art than from the people that produce them.
