Are you looking for art, crafts and artisan food that have been imagined, created and grown by people living in one of Ireland’s most remote communities?
Then look no further than the Sheep’s Head Producers’ Shop in Kilcrohane village. At the shop you’ll find ‘everything from paintings to potatoes’, all produced here on the Sheep’s Head peninsula.
We offer visitors an ever-changing range of local food, produce, plants, baking, hand-made crafts and art. There’s a treasure trove of items from ceramics, jewellery and driftwood creations to paintings, photography, knitwear and tweed hats in The Old Creamery. It’s a great destination for anyone who is interested in the best of what’s handmade and locally-produced, and it gives you the chance to meet the producers who share the task of running the shop and market.
The Sheep’s Head Producers began their work together when they started a Sunday Market in 2011. The shop at The Old Creamery, was opened in 2012. Both are run by a pioneering group of foodies, growers, craftspeople, designers and community activists. Some of us have lived here our whole lives, others have been drawn here from the UK, continental Europe and the USA. All of us have one thing in common: our passion for creating food, plants, art and crafts that reflect the unique character of the Sheep’s Head peninsula.
The work of more than 80 rural-dwelling artists, crafters and food lovers is gathered here, and you’ll get a real sense of the area’s rich and vibrant culture when you visit.
So, come and meet our producers and browse our wares in Kilcrohane village. We hope you’ll enjoy our unique showcase of the tastes and treasures from a magical place.
