Knitting at Glencolmcille Folk Village left & Glenveagh Castle right
(Both featured on Northwest Retreat)
Our 2017 Knitting Tours are almost full but we still have some seats left on our Northwest and Southwest Retreats. We have made some changes to our Northwest Knitting Retreat to make it even better!
Our Northwest Knitting Retreat is based primarily at Harvey’s Point on the banks of Lough Eske in Donegal. The ideal location for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of modern living. This Hotel was voted ‘Best Hotel in Ireland’ by TripAdvisor users for three years in a row!
This tour also includes some fantastic optional touring including a trip to the gorgeous Glenveagh Castle and the stunning Slieve League Cliffs. You will also visit Carrickmacross Lace and the Ulster Folk Museum. On your retreat stay you will have the company of one of our most loved knitting instructors; Edel MacBride working on knitting projects that have been designed especially for this knitting retreat by Edel.
The retreat now includes a Spinning Demonstration on a traditional Donegal Spinning Wheel and an afternoon knitting at Glencolmcille Folk village with some of the ladies from the locality – here tour members will be going through a Fair Isle pattern with Rita who received it from a local woman who had it in her family for several generations.
