Irish Heritage Crafts & Bookshop opened its doors to the public in March 2012, and is the brainchild of John Sinnott.
The idea began as an online craft business, making small bog oak pieces and custom gifts. "It quickly grew to so much more and I found I was running to catch up with the whole thing. We only saw the place about 3 weeks before the shop actually opened!" The unique Irish hand crafted gifts (seen on our Bog Oak Crafts page) are now being sold in a warm book store in Strokestown, Co. Roscommon, as well as new and second hand books, rare, out of print and antiquarian titles.
The shop also stock the work of other local craftspeople. "We are always looking for quality crafts to stock, initially on a Sale or Return basis. The amount of Irish crafts we keep in stock is constantly growing."
