7 Night Ireland Knit and Nature Ireland Tour

The Emerald Isle may be forty shades of green, but in the autumn, many of those green hues turn to warm, rich, earthy and vibrant tones. Our 7 night Knit and Nature Ireland tour will take you on a journey of discovery across the Irish landscape, exploring the connections between land and fibre, autumn colours and textures. Begin with a welcome brunch and tour of Airfield Estate, an environmentally sustainable farm and gardens in the heart of Dublin! Visit This Is Knit, Dublin’s top yarn store and receive a very special welcome gift! Join Carol Feller of Stolen Stitches for two days of in-depth garment knitting, working on a pattern you will love! Be inspired by fleece to fibre farm experiences including iconic Galway Wool Safari and Ériu of County Wicklow Farm to Yarn. Stay in new locations, with a memorable lakeside manor stay in Killarney with exclusive use of Loch Lein Country House, and the brand new The Chancery hotel in the heart of Dublin, contemporary design with natural materials. Stay in the Limerick Strand hotel on the banks of the iconic River Shannon, where you will enjoy a talk and pop up shop with Ballyhoura Yarns – a collection inspired by the lands around us! A yarn dyeing workshop with Talú Earth in the heart of rural Ireland, a horse and carriage ride and lake cruise to discover the flora and fauna of Killarney National  Park, idyllic The Swiss Cottage and the Museum of Style Icons and Newbridge Silverware will inspire your colour palettes further. Visits to Kerry Woollen Mills to see the 300-year-old mill in action, Hedgehog Fibres and a Knit and Sip experience at Ahascragh Eco-Distillery make this a unique and sustainability inspired tour, where you really do get back to nature and knitting.
