Carlingford Craft sells the work of a group of local artists and craftspeople. Everything is made by hand. The shop is run directly by the makers, which creates a unique shopping experience.

There is a wealth of talent in Carlingford Craft, including textile art, wood-turning, printing, vintage spoon jewellery, visual art, fused glass, handknits, polymer clay craft, preserves, scented soy candles, hand-stitched bags, gift cards, and much more besides. The shop was the brainchild of a local group of artists and craftspeople, who were looking for an outlet for their work. The shop began trading in 2013 and has quickly gained a reputation as the place to go for dependable, quality art and craft, with a very personal touch.

Carlingford Craft is run as an Arts & Crafts Collective. Members share the expenses and administration of the business, as well as being front of house. This means that every day is 'meet the maker' day, which is an unusual and interesting experience for the customer.

The ethos of the collective is that everything should be made by hand, with each member working in a different discipline. Carlingford Craft strives to stock a selection of gifts unlike any other, all of excellent quality, and with something to appeal to all tastes and pockets.

Tucked off the main square in the beautiful quayside village of Carlingford, the shop is like a treasure trove of beautiful finds. It is most definitely worth a visit.
