Testimonials

Really enjoyed our visit here. The spinning demonstration was excellent and we learned a lot. The kids enjoyed it too! Just to note you have to ask in the shop to get access to the museum part, we thought it was closed with the rope across but it wasn't. Definitely well worth a visit!

This museum was far more fascinating than expected. Seamus (I'm pretty sure that was his name) is an extremely knowledgeable gem to the trade and showed us so much. He made our visit really special and interesting! Highly recommended! Would love to see more of his work.

This is a cross roads in a beautiful no where. A quiet comfortable seat to recharge batteries for the stunning beauty of the next stage of your journey no matter which road you choose to go. It has what you need when you are feeling good. And the whole wide space of the place is warmly welcoming you in. Call in. Just for a local minute.
