Kiltimagh - The Artisan Village and birthplace of Rafteiri the blind Irish poet, lies in the very heart of the West of Ireland, in County Mayo. Revived trades and crafts of artisans from a bygone era make the village a living, historical experience.

Kiltimagh - The Artisan Village refers to Kiltimagh village and its focus as an artisan centre. It is also the birthplace of Rafteiri the blind Irish poet and lies in the very heart of the West of Ireland, in County Mayo.

Much of its bygone charm as a bustling market town is still evident in the architectural outline of the town, the Market Square and the shop facades. The trades and crafts of the many artisans once found there are being revived to provide a living, historical experience.

Among the interesting attractions to visit in Kiltimagh are The Town Museum and the Sculpture Park, which can be found in the grounds of the tastefully- restored old railway station.

Activities include angling, walking, cycling and golf.
