Irish sea side shop


As it’s still blissfully uncommercialised, Loop Head is far from being a shopping capital. However, there are plenty of places where you can pick up gifts and souvenirs of your visit. Any Occasion Gift Shop, at Circular Road in Kilkee, stocks a range of gifts for any event. And the Dolphinwatch Centre in Carrigaholt sells local crafts made from recycled materials by Conscious Crafts, including reclaimed rope mats made by a local fisherman, woollen crafts, bags, ornaments and jewellery. Also for sale are wildlife books, colouring books, postcards and prints. Dolphinwatch also screenprints their own T-shirts and hoodies. Similarly, you won’t be short of places to turn for provisions if you’re self-catering or picnicking. A list of artisan food suppliers can be found in the ‘Eat’ section (link here?). Remember also to check the local artists page (link), where you can buy some of the works of Loop Head artists from their websites.
