This sweater was invented on the Aran Islands and has long been considered the clothing of fishermen. Today it has become a business card and the main souvenir from Northern Ireland. Aran wool sweater can be brought as a gift to women or men from Belfast, Derry and small Irish towns. If the work is manual, it will cost you at least 300 pounds, and the factory version costs about 50.
We advise you to bring not only an Aran sweater from Northern Ireland, but also other woolen things. Here you can buy, for example, excellent socks, hats or mittens. The quality is simply excellent, the material is soft, pleasant to wear. Look for woolen things in the markets – they are available in almost every Northern Irish town. Well, or go to specialty stores.
What is Ireland without Celtic-style decorations? Yes, the North loves them too. Buy a famous Celtic cross or a ring for lovers Claddagh Ring with hands and heart as a keepsake. Feel free to take them to markets or souvenir shops. There, by the way, sometimes they even sell silver, which is inexpensive. For Celtic-style jewelry in Belfast or Derry, head to specialty stores.
