Arts, Crafts & Antiques

Old Irish Crafts are alive and thriving in Down, where the grandeur of the countryside and the high spirits of the people inspire artists and people alike. Elegant jewellery and ethnic knitwear bear the stamp of the vibrant yet homely culture that inspired them.
County Down has the highest percentage distribution of Designer/Makers (Craft Enterprises) by County in Northern Ireland (45%).
