Craft Shop/Tourist Information

It is with deep regret that, after 22years in business, we have to announce the closure of the

Craft Shop/Tourist Information Office in the Resource Centre. We would like to thank all the craftworkers down through the years, our customers, the Ballycastle/Belderrig Development Company for all their help, all workers over the years - RSS, TÚS, FÁS, students on the Summer Scheme – and their supervisors, local businesses and individuals who were always willing to help.

If there is any individual or group out there who would like to take over this venture, we would be delighted to meet with you.

We will have a closing down sale starting on the weekend of the Christmas Fair until Friday 6th December (shop will close on this date).

Shop will be open 11.00a.m. – 3.00p.m from Monday 2nd until Friday 6th December.
