Knit Ireland and Woollinn with Laura Nelkin! June 2020!

June 3rd - 14th, 2020
CANCELLED- rescheduling for June 2021!!!

I am SO excited to announce another knitting trip to Ireland! This one is extra special as I've timed it to end at Woollinn, a SUPER fun knitting festival just south of Dublin in Dun Laoghaire.

Day 1: Arrive in Dublin and travel to Cavan. We'll be stopping in Drogheda to meet Aine Dunne, an Irish tapestry weaver and learn about her work. We'll also meet with Jess from and have a dyeing demo and Q and A.  Then we'll start our adventure retreat "style" with Carol Feller, knitting and chatting and then follow that with a fantastic group dinner. The Farnham Estate in Cavan is the perfect first base!

Day 2: We'll start our day with a true Irish breakfast and then have a knitting workshop with Carol Feller, then we'll visit Sandra at Crafts of Ireland for lunch and a workshop on crocheting a traditional Irish Rose and learn about antique sock knitting machines.

Day 3: Group breakfast, and then head out to learn about Basket making from master basket maker Eddie McGrath. Afterwards we'll stop by Corleggy Cheese an award winning Irish artisan cheese to learn about the cheese making process at their farm! Yes, there will be CHEESE TASTING! In the afternoon Laura will lead a workshop in the hotel.

Day 4: Another yummy Breakfast, we'll leave Cavan to head to Donegal. On the way we are lucky enough to stop at the brand new Distillery tour of The Shed Distillery... Drumshanbo, is the unofficial drink of my Ireland trips, and we are going to learn how it is made! SO LUCKY! Then we'll head to the Butter Market in Enniskillen to see Irish crafters and artists work, and finally head to Belleek Pottery for a guided tour of their pottery production. We'll end in the day in Dongal at the Mill Park Hotel.

Day 5: Donegal Day (starts with Breakfast!)! We'll head out to Studio Donegal and get a tour of their hand-weaving and clothing manufacturing business committed to preserving and promoting traditional Irish hand-weaving. They have the most beautiful yarn! Then we'll go to Slieve League Cliffs (AMAZING) and have a wee hike, for those that are up to it! We'll end the day with a stop at Donegal Craft Village for a spot of tea and shopping. After dinner at the hotel the evening is your own... we may decide to head into town and catch a traditional Irish Music session in any one of Donegal’s traditional pubs or simply relax in the hotel.

Day 6:  We'll have breakfast and then head to Edel MacBride's for an intensive Aran knitting workshop. Enjoy a core workshop including yarn pack, working the best of Irish moss, cable and Edel’s favourite Aran stitches. After lunch we'll visit Glebe House, the home for nearly thirty years of the renowned artist Derek Hill which is situated on rising ground, beside Lough Gartan.Then we'll enjoy the beautiful surroundings Lough Eske Hotel for a delightful Afternoon Tea before returning to your hotel to relax and further enjoy your surroundings.

Day 7: After Breakfast (sense a theme here?) we will pack up and head towards Belfast. We'll have a visit at Dunluce Castle, a walk at the amazing Giants' Causeway, and a lovely lunch stop along the way. We'll end the day in Belfast at the Grand Central Hotel where you can enjoy one of its amazing restaurants!

Day 8: First, breakfast, then we'll pay a visit to Mourne Alpacas outside Belfast, a family managed herd of Alpaca and pedigree angora goats that produce high quality fleeces, so much so that their motto at the farm is “We breed for heat, not for meat!” After lunch locally we'll head back into Belfast for a visit to the Titanic Belfast museum. This museum is extremely interactive, with technology bringing each period to life. Return to our hotel in Belfast where the remainder of the evening is your own.

Day 9: BREAKFAST! And then we'll head towards Dun Laoghaire... on the way we'll stop at the Irish Linen Museum.  On your guided tour of the centre you will explore the history of linen production in the province of Ulster. Leaving Belfast, we travel south and make a stop at Malahide House and Gardens, a medieval castle with a dramatic 800 year old heritage, opulent antiques and décor, set in 260 acres of parkland with Victorian style walled gardens, formal lawns and Ireland’s only Butterfly House. Finally, we continue to check in at The Royal Marine Hotel and then enjoy a Farewell Dinner at a local restaurant.
