Our Story

The story of Mc Auliffe’s Craft Shop started when Cassie Sweeney opened a small drapers shop in Falcarragh, County Donegal, back in 1920. Four generations laterand our family-run business is now located in the heart of beautiful Dunfanaghy, along Donegal’s magnificent Wild Atlantic Way.

We recently celebrated a century in business, having celebrated and promoted Ireland’s rich heritage of craft and design for one hundred years. Each generation has passed down a core set of values to the next, the par amount one being to place our customers at the core of everything we do.

We pride our selves on sourcing and hand picking all products, with expert craftsmanship and originality in mind. Mc Auliffe’s Craft Shop is now home to some of the most exciting designer-makers across the island of Ireland, and we continue to grow this talented community of makers year in, year out.

In 2019, we added an elegant new retail space upstairs in the shop. This was named No.33, after the original 1800’s dwelling house where our shop now resides. No.33 was designed by blending the age-old traditional features of the building with modern architecture and design. No. 33 is a lifestyle and living space featuring the finest of Irish craft alongside contemporary European design. Here we have curated what we feel is one of the most beautiful and creative lifestyle collections for the home.
