The Craft Shop & Coffee Shop


The Workhouse craft shop has a range of local crafts on offer including lovely McNutts Donegal blankets, locally made scarves, pictures, jewellery and home made jams and pickles.


There is a selection of toys for the children to spend their pocket money on and plenty of activity games or crafts to while away those rainy Donegal days or buckets and spades for the beach.


There is a great range of books available; light reading for your holiday, Irish history and a number of locally written books covering a variety of topics, such as “Our Wee House” by Lena Wilson.  There are also high quality second hand books available for €2.00, all proceeds go to the maintenance of the Workhouse.

Coffee Shop

The coffee shop serves Bewleys coffee and a range of teas.  Try our selection of home made baking such as scones, apple and cinnamon cake, chocolate or coffee cake or a nice meringue served with fresh fruit and cream.

We also serve lunches and afternoon tea and our soups are all home made.
