Pure Ireland is the recently launched online shop of Adrigole Arts, a small independent craft shop located in Adrigole on the beautiful Beara Peninsula in the South West of Ireland, on the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way. The couple behind Pure Ireland and Adrigole Arts are Gerry Bruton, who is originally from Dublin and, his French partner Cécile Thévenet. The couple live on the premises with their two young daughters. The shop was established in 1997 with the aim of offering a rich selection of quality Irish crafts.
We pride ourselves on being highly recommended by the Crafts Council of Ireland and our shop is well-loved and recognised by Irish crafts people and our many loyal customers.
The shop’s first floor is our art gallery where we exhibit Irish landscape and seascape paintings, ceramics and sculptures. A series of intimate music concerts also take place in the gallery throughout the year.
From April to October, we open our lovely coffee shop and terrace, where we serve great coffee, tea and yummy cakes - our Chocolate and Guinness cake is the most popular! Nothing better than shopping and cake to unwind while enjoying the picturesque surroundings!
In 2019, we decided to launch Pure Ireland from a real desire to offer authentic, quality and original Irish crafts online. Pure Ireland is about sourcing and selling designs and quality Irish products which reflect a colourful and creative modern Ireland.
We hope that you will enjoy using our online shop and that you will have as much pleasure and joy using our products as we have in discovering and selecting them!
The shop, gallery and coffee shop are located together with our home in a renovated, traditional farmhouse with magnificent views of the coastline and mountains. Perhaps you may come to visit us on the Beara Peninsula, please let us know and we will be very happy to offer you a cup of complimentary coffee to thank you for supporting us!
