7 Night Ireland Country Manor Knitting Retreat

Spend four nights in the heart of the Fermanagh Lakelands, with an additional night at Killeavy Castle Estate and book-ended with a stay in one of Dublin’s most elegant hotels.

Explore Dublin with sightseeing and a personal shopping experience in Dublin’s number one yarn store.

Join Crafts of Ireland for full afternoon of spinning and knitting before being welcomed to your Manor House retreat by your host, renowned knitwear designer Edel MacBride.

The next four days will have you immersed in knitting and Manor living! 

We will also have music and storytelling as you knit in the evening, a gin distillery tour and more yarn! Spend an amazing day in Armagh, synonymous with Saint Patrick and home to orchards, incredible architecture and wonderful cultural locations.

Visit the Armagh Cider Company for a Blossom to Bottle Experience and Brownlow House welcomes you for a morning of knitting with the locals and exploring the grand estate.
