Kiltimagh

Kiltimagh, the Artisan Village and birthplace of Rafteiri the blind Irish poet, lies in the very heart of the West of Ireland. Much of its bygone charm as a bustling market town is still evident in the architectural outline of the town, the Market Squareand the shop facades. The trades and crafts of the many artisans once found there are being revived to provide a living, historical experience. Among the many interesting attractions to visit in Kiltimagh are: The Town Museum, the Stationmaster's House Arts Exhibition Centre and the Sculpture Park, all to be found in the grounds of the tastefully restored old railway station, and well worth a visit. Activities include angling, walking, cycling and golf.
