GLENDOWEN CRAFT STUDIO
Glendowen Craft Shop and Studio encapsulates the beauty and spirit of the Inishowen Peninsula. Based in Meentagh Glen, Clonmany, the beautiful workshop and retail outlet is where tradition meets modernity, beauty meets function and ‘craic agus ceol’ rings around its walls.
It is here among the hills, that you will find garments and accessories of the very best Donegal Tweed, expertly and lovingly hand-crafted on the premises by Ann Mc Gonigle.
Ann’s craft was passed down through the generations of those before her. She learned from and is inspired by her own, late mother, a talented crafts person who taught her daughter the art of sewing and crocheting from a very young age.
These generations of learning and tradition are sewn into all of Ann’s own, original pieces. You could say that each item at Glendowen Craft Studio is its very own piece of Inishowen, both then and now.
Ann specialises in a beautiful range of ladies’ garments with a gorgeous hand-crochet finish. These include jackets, coats, capes, wraps, tunics hats, scarves, bags and jewellery. The Donegal tweed that is used is woven by the world famous Magee’s of Donegal Town and Mc Nutts of Downings, also based in Donegal.
