Killybegs International Carpet Making & Fishing Centre
The centre offers a unique experience in the Fishing and Carpet making history for visitors who venture to the shores of this picturesque town situated on the Donegal coastline.
Three reasons to visit the Killybegs International Carpet Making & Fishing Centre
Where else would you be able to…
Stand in the actual Carpet Factory which once designed, dyed and thread wool by hand-knotters, and produced world-class Donegal Carpets that can still be seen in such places as Dublin Castle, The Oval Room at the White House, the Vatican, Buckingham Palace, stately homes, and foreign embassies throughout the globe.
See the largest hand-knotted loom in the world, view live demonstrations of how hand-knotting is done, and also have the opportunity to test your own skills at the loom
View the largest fishing fleet in Ireland in its natural harbour, the home-place of the Atlantic Dawn, which was one of the largest fishing vessels in country; step into the boots of a fisherman via the Bridge Simulator replica of a boat wheelhouse, and experience the virtual reality of the ocean.
Be assured of a warm welcome to the Killybegs International Carpet Making & Fishing Centre. The centre tour will take approximately one hour, and our staff will be on hand to help with any questions visitors may have.
