Island Turf Crafts Visitor Centre
Island Turf Crafts gifts are hand-crafted using 5000 year-old Irish turf from some of Ireland's oldest boglands. The unique antique brown finish highlights every detail of the delicate ancient Celtic designs. The turf-made gifts include ornaments, clocks, Celtic crosses, picture frames, paperweights, jewellery and other souvenirs. Why not visit our workshop and craft shop just an hour's drive from Belfast.

Come and observe the craftsmen at work while exploring the bog museum with reconstructed lifestyles and habits of pre-historic Ireland with artefacts excavated from Irish boglands. Artefacts on display reveal much about the rich and varied history of Ireland before and after the Ice Age.
Exhibits include bog oak sculptures, numerous turf products, a simulated peat or turf bog, and bones and large antlers from a Great Irish Elk dating back some 15,000 years.
