Worth a walk through

Probably of more interest to tourists but I still think it's a good place to pass half and hour. Some interesting shops.

The Craft Village is very unique and appealing to the eyes - without a doubt. However, other than a few hair salons and an Irish Gift Store there isn't much to do within it. It is certainly worth a visit if you're not from here and would like to take a few photos. There is a very nice crystal shop... More

Even on a damp, windy, wintry day this was a delightful haven. Although adjacent to the city walls and Tower Museum this courtyard area felt like we were in another world and there was lots to see - even my 10 year old son found much to intrigue him - especially the knitted bicycles, wire tree, traditional cottage and pump!...
