About Irish Handcrafts

Irish Handcrafts is the oldest retail business on Patrick Street, in the centre of Limerick City in Ireland. We’re a  family run store founded in 1969. 

We specialize in a unique range of Irish Knitwear, Fashions, Tweeds and Linens.  Our Aran Fisherman style sweaters, cardigans and coats are all crafted in 100% pure wool and feature traditional patterns passed down from generation to generation in Irish families.

Our range of Handknitted Aran Sweaters and Cardigans is of superb quality, expertly hand made for us in Co. Donegal.  These are high end authentic traditional handcrafted garments which are becoming increasingly difficult to source. Heirlooms to be treasured in your wardrobe for years to come!   

The Blankets & Throws, Caps and Scarves in our collection are all made locally and come in a variety of 100% pure wool yarns, sizes and at prices to suit all pockets.
