Share your love for your home place by giving a gift from Leitrim and support local designers, craftmakers and artists living in your community. Immerse yourself in a landscape of stories with our locally produced book Leitrim a Creative Landscape. With striking images & words by Brian Farrell, they capture the rich diverse creative community living in the region and highlight their relationship to our beautiful countryside.

Speaking of our countryside, one of those artists inspired by our stunning landscape is Carrick-on-Shannon artist Catherine Gray. Add some colour to your home this winter with one of her original textile art works starting at only €65.

Treat someone special to some unique jewellery made just up the road too by established Leitrim designer Erika Marks. A designer with a true passion for what she creates. There’s a piece of history, science or unique methodology behind each of her creations. Erika can create an heirloom piece of jewellery, custom made for you. Another Carrick-on-Shannon creator is Carol McLoughlin. Through beautifully hand crafted calligraphy Carol creates thoughtful gifts to reflect on and offer comfort. Kind and caring words go far especially at this time of year.

More soothing comfort can come in the form of gentle skin care. We’re lucky we have a wide range made right here in Leitrim.
