The Avoca store in Connemara, on Ireland’s dramatic Atlantic coast is situated right on the shores of Ballinakil Bay on the main Clifden – Westport road at Letterfrack. A must-see for visitors to Connemara, the shop combines the very best of Irish crafts, gifts, clothes and soft furnishings, all with a view out across a magnificent rugged coastline and rolling hills of Connemara National Park.

It is the ideal place to pick up gifts or something special for yourself. There’s something for everyone from womenswear to outdoor gear to delicious food from the Avoca Pantry range, perfect for that beach or mountainside picnic on the Twelve Pins.

There is also a large selection of scarves, rugs and throws in fine mohairs, lambswool and cashmere in many cases woven at the family Mill in Avoca Village, Co Wicklow.

Working for many years with talented Irish craftspeople, the store provides an exciting selection of exclusive gifts and accessories including glass, leather, pottery, silk, ironwork, jewellery, organic farming produce, perfumes and candles. Avoca is an Irish family-run business that spans one of the world’s oldest surviving manufacturing companies and Ireland’s most exciting stores. The beautifully bright and airy café is also worth a visit to rest tired legs after a morning of sightseeing.
