You can also shop online at www.shannonirishdesignstore.com , for a treasure trove of wonderful Irish Designer Brands , a beautiful display of Waterford and Galway Crystal, not to mention an outstanding array of Ladies, Mens and Children’s Aran Sweaters and Accessories.


The café, called Mr. O’Regan’s has been created with the absolute aim of using local suppliers from the region as much as possible and offering that product in a unique, fun environment. The café is full of props, for example the bins are milk churns, there is a 10 metre wall graphic, and a bright orange meat slicer and a coordinating bicycle in the middle of the floor. It’s an ideal place to meet friends for a coffee or lunch and to do some browsing in the shop after.
Now open, you can visit the store and café without having to enter the Folk Park. It really is a whole new experience!
