Arena Travel Knit and Crochet in the West of Ireland

On this superb 6-day knitting & crochet holiday you’ll enjoy workshops led by either Carol Meldrum (9th -14th May) and discover the stunning scenery, spirit and traditional crafts of the west coast of Ireland. Included excursions give you a chance to explore the charming city of Galway and visit the Leenane Sheep and Wool Centre amidst the rugged Connemara landscape.

Knitting has been a part of Irish life since the 1600’s when knitting schools were established across the country. During the 18th century knitting became a source of income for many households thanks to an abundance of wool. Aran sweaters with their distinctive design are a symbol of Ireland. A full day excursion to the smallest of the Aran islands is a chance to learn about Aran knitting – the Inis Oírr way.
