Ireland Knitting Vacations

Irish Knitting Tours

Discovering Ireland Vacations are now offering an array of superb Irish knitting tours. Enjoy your vacation to Ireland  by taking part in these group tours that celebrate the art and skill of knitting. Our knitting vacations celebrate everything to do with knitting and they are based either in the south of Ireland tour, taking in the South and West of the country and the North of Ireland knitting tour which is concentrated in the North and West of Ireland.

All of our knitting group tours include workshops and are craft based as well as general sightseeing. We offer a wide variety of tours including our 6, 9 and 10 night knitting vacations which take in the historic city of Kilkenny, the UNESCO Burren region in County Clare, the majestic Cliffs of Moher, Sheeps Head Peninsula, the Aran Islands and Killarney in the popular Ring of Kerry. 

Knitting was introduced to Ireland sometime in the 17th century and it found to be a communal activity practiced by the women of rural communities for clothing their families. Over the centuries a vast array of distinctive traditional stitches have been developed, moving through communities as women shared and learned from one another.
