Thank you for Visiting...

As with many on-line stores now just having a virtual presence, we're proud to say as well as having a virtual presence, we also have a 'bricks 'n' mortar' presence!

Situated on Main Street, Clifden, in the heart of Connemara, our family-run shop has been specializing in gifts and crafts of a Celtic nature since 1975. Most of our products are sourced in Ireland however, some are found in other Celtic regions such as Wales, Scotland, and Cornwall. This Celtic theme is carried on through our in-store Tara Jewellers. Here you will find gold and silver jewellery, some of which is set in our famous local green Connemara Marble.

We also stock: Waterford Crystal
Galway Crystal
Belleek China
Nicholas Mosse Pottery
Newbridge Silverware
Avoca and Hanley's woven throws & scarves
Celtic Pewter Jewellery by St. Justin
Celtic Pewter Hip Flasks and Tankards
Irish Books and Music

As our stock changes constantly with new designs, we are unable to produce a full on-line catalogue and therefore can only show you a small sample of our most popular items, those of which we can repeat.

We would be delighted to meet you in person and help you enjoy this beautiful region of Ireland. If you are unable to visit us then look through the departments on this website and order in the knowledge that after nearly 30 years of serving visitors to Connemara we will handle your order with care and consideration.

We thank you for visiting our webpage, hope to see you soon, best regards, The Celtic Shop team!
