Legless In The Country: Linn Fashion and Gifts, Visitor Centre, Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare

Linn Fashion and Gifts
Ballyvaughan, Co. Clare (behind Spar)

As well as a tourist information point, Linn Fashion and Gifts has a surprisingly varied collection of, you’ve guessed it, fashion and gifts.

What has it got?

Seating: No seats in here but if you want a bit of a lean or a perch, there’s a grand wall out front.
Doors: The door is normally kept open here but it fits a wheelchair.
Ground: A fine display of wooden panelling going on in here.
Stairs: There are a couple of steps in but there is a ramp beside it too.
Bathrooms: There is no bathroom here but it’s just across the way from Spar’s bathrooms which are big enough for a wheelchair.
Spaciousness: It can be a little bit tight between all of the display units but with some parallel parking and three-point turning, you will get to see everything.
Helpfulness of Staff: Geraldine Linnane runs this shop and she is the woman to talk to for tourist information. She is very helpful and if you need anything else, simply ask.
Parking: There is wheelchair parking available at the entrance of the shop.
Rating: 9.5
Why did it lose points? Linn Fashion and Gifts lost half a point because it can be a little bit tight between all the display units and shelves. All in all, it has everything else in place in terms of access.
