“EAn Ceardlann Craft and Design Studios is an Irish handcrafts haven where ten in-house artisans design, create and sell their unique wares. Ceardlann - "must stop" in Irish - is indeed such a port of call for visitors interested in Irish culture and craft. Various studios house these artist's workshops where basket weaving, acrylic painting, stained glass, pottery, screen printing, weaving and Celtic jewellery are created. Builín Blasta Café is a great stop to un-wind after a long day shopping in the Spiddal Craft Centre or for passers-by on the R336. A range of fantastic home made dishes and delicious desserts is available. The café also stocks a range of Builín Blasta chutneys, salad dressings and hand-made chocolates to take home and savour. All the shops are completely wheelchair accessible”
