Ardara Heritage Centre


Republic of Ireland

Ardara, in County Donegal, has long been a centre for weaving. The Ardara Heritage Centre tells the story of Donegal tweed from the shearing of sheep to the manufacture of the woven cloth. Old photographs, displays and models recall the history of tweed production in the Ardara region.

Weavers at work show how a loom operates and the different stitches which make up Aran knitwear can be examined. An audio visual presentation shows some of the attractions of this scenic area of Donegal.

The Centre also now boasts of a fine Theatre which can seat up to 150 people and is acoustically fitted to allow any small community group use the Centre for a play or a concert.
